Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
Waytek, Inc., a leading distributor of electrical wiring supplies, connectors and circuit breakers, announces that they have been selected to be a Mechanical Products (MP) authorized distributor partner for their new Series 17 line of Thermal Circuit Breakers.
The Series 17, manufactured in the U.S.A., is a main or branch circuit breaker used in accessory or auxiliary direct circuit (DC) electrical systems operating in harsh environments to provide protection in the event of overload and/or short circuit interruptions. The Series 17 is available in 25 – 100 amp ratings (up to 200 amp circuit breakers will be available in late April) with stainless steel terminal SEMs nuts as an option.
The new Series 17, which is designed for industrial, transportation, and vehicle accessory manufacturers, includes Agricultural, Construction, Marine, Material Handling, Emergency Vehicles, Automotive Lifts, Battery Chargers, and Recreational Vehicles and Trucks industries. The series is available in Type I, Type II, and Type III.
The Series 17 offers designers and end-users improved access to wiring and operation, corrosion resistant studs and hardware, superior moisture sealing, a variety of mounting options, higher amperage ratings, and potential use of bus bars while enclosed in a durable, sealed thermoplastic housing. The Series 17 is compatible to existing mounting profiles while offering new features and mounting styles that allow for next generation designs.
The MP Series 17 offers new Side-by-Side Surface and Easy Access, 90-degree Panel Mount designs, in addition to standard mounting profiles. Surface Mount configurations are available in 1/4” and 3/8” heavy-duty stainless steel terminal studs. Panel Mount units are available with 1/4” brass, nickel-plated terminal studs.
The MP Series 17 is designed as a drop-in replacement for existing surface and panel mountable configurations in the market today. These high quality breakers are assembled in the USA and available only at Authorized Distribution Partners like Waytek, Inc.
The NEW Series 17 Thermal Circuit Breakers are an excellent complement to MP’s existing Series 18 breakers, also designed for harsh environments, available in 2 through 60 amp ratings.
