Schurter’s popular TA35 thermal circuit breaker is offered with an antimicrobial protective cover, thus allowing the circuit breaker to be used in applications where protection against the spread of bacteria is essential. Such applications are on the rise, especially in medical and laboratory facilities, as well as in food service facilities and processing plants.
The TA35 circuit breaker is already used to provide thermal overcurrent protection. The antimicrobial properties further expand the range of use in sensitive applications, where the spread of bacteria must be prevented. The new cover has been tested and confirmed to be antibacterial effective according to ISO 22196, particularly in protecting against the growth of the bacteria strains Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Additionally, the silver ions contained in the cover material prevent the growth of numerous other organisms. The breaker with cover has an ingress protection rating of IP 65, and withstands the use of common cleaning agents and disinfectants. The antibacterial effectiveness combined with seal protection make the unit well suited for use in hygienic equipment subjected to routine wash downs.
