This service extends from the design and manufacture of bus bars, switch panels and other accessory items to complete pre-wired distribution sub-racks and power control systems. The service is suitable for manufacturing and process control, in a wide range of industries including telecommunications, petro-chemical, pharmaceutical, rail, water, aerospace and defence.
E-T-A is able to offer hundreds of thousands of different circuit breaker configurations that can, in turn, be complemented by accessories, terminal blocks and power distribution rails, which together represent a wide selection of products. Computer software enables E-T-A designers to create 3-D computer models for the demonstration of the ideas and to respond rapidly to enquiries.
A variety of mounting configurations is also available to help provide the best solution for individual applications. Some models are pluggable, utilising E-T-A mounting sockets, offering versatility and convenience – particularly during service and maintenance – while track-mountable products are available for installation in control cabinets. As a further option, securely fixed panel mounted circuit breakers will enhance overall system robustness.
Crucial to a properly designed and reliable power distribution system is the correct selection of circuit protection, including current ratings and trip characteristics, to ensure that neither the cables nor the load itself are damaged by overload or short circuit. It is also of paramount importance to avoid any adverse effects on the power supply or loads adjacent to a faulty circuit. E-T-A electro-mechanical and electronic circuit breakers and protectors are ideally suited to this purpose.
