5. It can work reliably under normal vibration of the ship.
6. It can work reliably under the condition of a slight earthquake (level 4).
7. It can work in the medium without explosion hazard, and the medium does not have enough gas and conductive dust to corrode the metal and destroy the insulation.
8. It can work in a place free from rain and snow.
9. It can work in the maximum inclination is ±22.5°.
10. Pollution degree is 3
11. Installation category: The installation category of the main circuit breaker is II,and the installation category of auxiliary circuits and control circuits not connected to the main circuit is II.
1. According to product pole number: classify into 2 poles, 3 poles and 4 poles. The forms of neutral poles (N poles) in 4-pole products are as follows:
◇ N pole is not installed with overcurrent trip element, and the N pole is always connected,and it will not open and close with other three poles.
◇ N pole is not installed with overcurrent trip element, and N pole is open and close with other three poles (N pole is open first and then close.)
◇ N-pole installed over-current tripping components are open and close with other three poles.
◇ N-pole installed overcurrent release components will not open and close together with other three poles.
2. Classify according to the rated short-circuit breaking capacity of the circuit breaker:
L: Standard type; M. Higher breaking type; H. High breaking type;
R: Ultra high breaking type
3. Classify according to operation mode: handle direct operation, rotary handle operation, electric operation;
4. Classify according to the wiring method: front wiring, rear wiring, plug-in wiring;
5. Classify according to the installation method: fixed (vertical installation or horizontal installation)
6. Classify by use: power distribution and motor protection;
7. Classify according to the form of overcurrent release: electromagnetic type, thermal electromagnetic type;
8. Classify according to whether there are accessories: with accessories, without accessories;
The accessories are divided into internal accessories and external accessories; internal accessories have four types: shunt release under-voltage release, auxiliary contacts and alarm contacts; external accessories have rotating handle operating mechanism, electric operating mechanism, interlock mechanism and wiring terminal block, etc. The codes of internal accessories are shown in the table below.
