CM1LE Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker
Its main function is to provide indirect contact protection for personal electric shock of fatal danger. Rated residual operating current does not exceed residual current operated circuit breaker of 0.03A when other protection measures are invalid, also can provide supplementary protection for direct contact, but not as the only direct contact protection. At the same time, CM1LE MCCB ELCB can also prevent electrical fire caused by the contact fault current. And CM1LE MCCB ELCB can protect overload and short circuit of the circuits, can also be used for infrequent conversion of the circuits.
The CM1LE MCCB ELCB has the small volume (equal to the volume of the corresponding molded case circuit breaker), high breaking, short arc arcing and residual operating current. At the same time, CM1LE MCCB ELCB can take alarm contact, shunt release, undervoltage release, auxiliary contact, turning handle operating mechanism, electric operation mechanism and other accessories. The wiring method has many ways: wiring in front of board, wiring on back of board, insertion type of the board and so on, is ideal product for users.
DAM2 CM1LE MCCB (CM1LE MCCB switch) can be mounted vertically (upright) or horizontally (transverse).

Structure and working principle
CM1LE series residual current operated circuit breakers are electronic residual current operated circuit breakers, mainly consists of the zero-sequence transformer, Electronic control leakage release and circuit breakers with overload and short circuit protection, all components are installed in a pair of plastic case.
When the circuits protected by the chip processing have leakage or personal electric shock, as long as the residual current reach to setting operating current value, the output signal of the secondary winding of the zero-sequence transformer trigger SCR to conduct, and make residual current operated circuit breaker act by the leakage release, thereby cutting off the power supply to play the protective role in leakage and electric shock.
When the protected circuits have overload or short circuit, the thermal magnetic release complete the delay or instantaneous trip action to make the residual current operated circuit breaker act, thereby cutting off the power supply to play the protective role in overload and shout-circuit.
Inner accessory of earth leakage circuit breakers
a. Undervoltage release
When the voltage drops (or even slow down) to the rated voltage range of 70% and 35%, undervoltage release should act; undervoltage release should prevent residual current operated circuit breaker closing when the power supply voltage is below the release voltage of 35%; When the supply voltage is equal to or greater than 85%, undervoltage release should ensure that the residual current operated circuit breaker can be closed. The rated value and code are shown in Table 7.
Note: Residual current operated circuit breakers equipped with undervoltage releases can be normally closing and opening when the undervoltage release at the rated voltage.
b. Shunt release
Residual current operated circuit breakers can be reliably disconnected at rated voltage of 70% to 110%. Rating and code (see Table 8)
Note: When the voltage specification is DC24V, the rated current is 5A ± 0.5A.
C. Auxiliary contact and alarm contact parameters
|Frame grade||Conventional heating current Ith A||Rated current in AC400V Ie A||Rated current in AC230V Ie A|
When residual current operated circuit breaker opens and closes normally, the alarm contact does not act, only after the free trip (or fault trip), alarm contact alarms, the contact changes the original position, is that normally open transfers closed, normally closed transfers open. When the circuit breaker buckles again, the alarm contact restore the original state.
External accessories of earth leakage circuit breakers

The rated value of the motor operated mechanism (see Table 10), the total height of the residual current operated circuit-breaker mounted with electric operating mechanism (see Table 11).

2, The product must be connected to the module power supply before closing.
3, After leakage alarm, no pressing product test button continuously.
4, After leakage alarm, please promptly remove the fault, and press the reset button to reset.
When selecting the rated residual operating current value of the residual current operated circuit breaker, the possible normal leakage current value of the protected circuit or equipment should be taken into account. When necessary, the leakage current value of the protected circuit or equipment can be got by actual measurement.
Selecting of the rated residual non-operating current of residual current operated circuit breakers, which should be not less than 2 times the maximum value of the normal leakage current of the electrical wiring and equipment.
Residual current operated circuit-breakers with a rated residual operating current of 30 mA should be preferred when hand-held power tools, portable electrical appliances, household appliances, sockets, appliances for construction sites (rated current not less than 100 A) and other equipments have difficulty in ground connection.
The residual current operated circuit-breaker with a rated residual operating current of 30 mA can be selected for single device. The residual current operated circuit-breaker with a rated residual operating current of 30 mA or more can be selected for the total protection of multiple devices (multi-branch).
Residual current operated circuit-breakers with a rated residual operating current of 30 mA should be selected for electrical equipment installed in wet locations.
