SIDERMAT are manually operated 3 or 4 pole load break switches with visible breaking and a remote tripping function.
They make and break under load conditions and provide safety isolation for any low voltage circuit.
The tripping function assures the following:
- protection of persons against insulation faults through combination with toroids and differential relays
- protection against overloads through combination with CTs and thermal relays
- protection against short circuits with fuses (see SIDERMAT fuse-combination switches)
Disconnection by a shunt trip device enables the power to the installation to be switched off with a remote pushbutton.
Safety with visible double breaking
SIDERMATs are visible double breaking devices (quadruple up to 800 A) providing real and secure display
Robustness in harsh conditions
By lowering the current via a limiting resistor, a SIDERMAT fitted with an undervoltage coil may be used in continuous processes or exposed to high ambient temperatures.
