E-T-A Circuit Breakers has introduced a rocker-actuated, single/double-pole combined circuit breaker and On/Off switch with optional water splash protection.

The E-T-A Type 1120 Thermal Circuit Breaker is designed for single-phase applications.

Typical applications include household appliances, office equipment, garden and hobby tools, electric motors, power supplies, battery chargers, cable extension reels and multiple socket outlets.

The compact E-T-A 1120 features a thermal trip-free mechanism offering over-current protection and safe physical isolation of the load.

The rocker actuator can either be specified as a latching switch for On/Off operation, when the position of the actuator indicates the status of the switching contacts, or it can be specified as a momentary switch.

The Type 1120 is available in a range of current ratings, from 3A up to 16A, for 240V AC or 32V DC (50V DC for double pole).

It meets the requirements of the CBE standard EN 60934: S-type, category TO, and the fire resistance requirements of EN 60335-1:2007-02 Safety of household and similar electrical appliances.

Water splash protection is optional to raise the standard protection from IP40 to IP66; an illuminated rocker is also optional.

For large volume orders, customised designs can be offered for the front bezel and rocker.
