Sensata Technologies releases new 2EP thermal circuit breaker model for industrial applications

Feb 9, 2012

ATTLBORO, MA (February 9, 2012) -- Sensata Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ST), a leading manufacturer of sensors and controls, announces the release of the new 2EP Series of thermal circuit breaker designed for use in a wide variety of industrial applications where a small size, yet high-interrupt performance and high resistance to shock and vibration is needed.

The 2EP Series is a sub-miniature push-pull thermal circuit breaker adapted from a proven aerospace circuit breaker design to offer a truly high performance solution to the market place at a competitive price.  The push-pull design of the 2EP decreases the risk of accidental tripping. Temperature compensation allows it to maintain a constant calibration across temperature extremes. The thermal design allows a sufficient delay to minimize nuisance trips. The robust latching design offers high shock and vibration performance. The multi-break design offers high-interrupt performance and ratings at both AC and DC voltages.

The 2EP is U.L. recognized (1077) and rated to 75 VDC, and 250 VAC at 60 Hz. All these features combine to make a solution which is ideally suited for industrial equipment, radars, medical and dental equipment, electronic control systems, recreational vehicles, telecommunications equipment, power supplies, and test equipment, to name a few.

David Roche, Marketing Manager for Sensata’s Precision Products business, said, “Based on our  track record of  success in the demanding world of aerospace, we are introducing  the 2EP Series to serve new markets in the industrial market.  By expanding our portfolio in this way, we are able to deliver a highly reliable device to mission-critical industrial applications at the right price point for our customers.”

The 2EP Series is currently available in amp ratings from 1 to 25 amps, and various bushing mounting and terminal configurations.  Distributor stock is currently available for sampling and purchase.  For more details, please visit us on the web at:
