The CBM (circuit breaker multichannel) from Phoenix Contact has received Class I, Division 2 approval. This approval makes the CBM suitable for use in hazardous locations such as oil refineries, offshore platforms, and wastewater treatment facilities. The CBM is a programmable circuit breaker that can manage multiple circuits in a single, compact device.
The CBM is available in four- and eight-channel versions, so it can manage up to eight circuits. Each channel has multiple nominal current ratings from 0.5 – 10 A, with an LED status indication that lets users monitor the trip status of each circuit-breaker channel. The CBM measures just 41 mm wide, so it occupies minimal DIN rail space.
