PKE electronic motor protection circuit breaker

Thanks to their special features, the Eaton Moeller series motor-protective circuit breakers with electronic overload protection complement the PKZ range and offer a good alternative to MCBs with bimetallic strips. Due to the compact and modular design featuring plug-in trip blocks, they offer maximum flexibility in the current range up to 65 A. By adding the PKE-XTUCP trip blocks, you can quickly turn a PKE motor-protective circuit breaker into a PKE circuit breaker for system and cable protection.

Trip classes:
greater than - equal to CLASS 10
Push-in technology:
save up to 50 % installation time

Core features

  • Hand-operated motor-protective circuit breaker in accordance with IEC/EN 60947-4-1, VDE 0660 Part 102
  • Rotary handle with ON & OFF switch-position indicator
  • Push-in trip block up to 65 A with visible isolating distance
  • If used in conjunction with the appropriate accessories, the circuit breaker can be turned into main switch or emergency-stop switch in accordance with EN 60204 and/or VDE 0113
  • Isolating characteristics in accordance with IEC/EN 60947-3
  • UL/CSA (including Types E and F) approvals for the North American market
  • SmartWire-DT integration
  • Short-circuit proof up to 100 kA (400 V) up to 32 A, 50 kA (400 V) up to 65 A
  • Circuit breaker width: 45 mm up to 36 A / 55 mm up to 65 A

Connections with just one clever “click” – the PKE electronic motor-protective circuit breaker with Push-in technology

The Push-in terminals enable control-panel wiring with just one simple click. This tool-free connection technology makes wiring even faster, safer and more efficient. The PKE motor-protective circuit breakers with electronic wide-range overload protection and plug-in trip blocks offer a viable alternative to bi-metallic solutions in the current range up to 65 A.

The PKE as part of the xStart system

Many applications require an auxiliary contact with different contact configurations for interlocking and signaling. By using a motor starter, however, it becomes possible to implement a more direct, safe and efficient control design.

Open, flexible and easy communication!

Due to the established and widespread serial Fieldbus Modbus RTU the communication module is an open and standardized Communication interface. This enables a complete recoding of the machine conditions and a consistent and clear condition monitoring.

All the information at your fingertips thanks to SmartWire-DT

Via SmartWire-DT, the PKE motor starter combinations can be easily integrated into any automation environment. By enhancing data transparency, SmartWire-DT increases the efficiency and reliability of the drives in the vicinity of the motor-protective circuit breaker.

Energy efficiency is currently a hot topic

With Eaton, your systems are automatically compliant with the ErP directive in a simple, fast and economical way, while significantly reducing your energy costs.

Expertise that we are happy to share - the Eaton Moeller series

Eaton has been manufacturing the PKZ motor-protective circuit breaker since 1932. Since then, our ideas and innovations have made a major contribution to advances in motor protection. In this regard, the name PKZ not only stands for quality, but has also become a synonym for motor-protective circuit breakers among experts.
