The data protection law will change on 25 May 2018. On that day, the General Data Protection Regulation of 27 April 2016 (hereinafter referred to as "GDPR") will come into force. That is why we are providing our Clients and Leads with this notice that will inform you about the ways in which we process your personal data.
Transfer Multisort Elektronik Ltd. Coleshill House Suite 1C, 1 Station Road Coleshill, Birmingham, B46 1HT, United Kingdom and Transfer Multisort Elektronik sp. z o.o., ul. Ustronna 41, 93-350 Łódź (hereinafter referred to as "TME") is the Data Controller of your personal data, therefore it determines the methods and goals of processing your personal data. Providing the personal data is voluntary, however it is also necessary for us to conclude contracts and perform services.
Obtaining information on processing of personal data
You can contact the Data Protection Officer on matters concerning the protection of your personal data via email at email@example.com or by sending a letter to our headquarters.
Data collection and the purpose of its processing
We process your personal data because it is necessary to perform a contract with you i.e. provide a service (compliant with Article 6 (1) (b) of GDPR) including:
In addition, we are required by law to process your personal data for tax and accounting purposes.
Furthermore, we may process your personal data for marketing purposes i.e. promoting our products and services. If we do this without using electronic means of communication, the legal basis for those activities is Article 6 (1) (f) of GDPR where conducting marketing activities is a legitimate interest of the Data Controller. However, if we use electronic means of communication for this purpose i.e. e-mail or phone, then due to other applicable laws we only process personal data with your consent (compliant with Article 6 (1) (a) of GDPR).
Your personal data may be transferred to other parties that will process your personal data on their own behalf, including but not limited to:
Retention periods of your personal data
We will retain your personal data for the duration of a contract (performance of services) and after its dissolution:
Rights related to data processing
You have the right to access, correct and transfer your data, limit its processing, object to its processing, or withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing that was already performed on the basis of consent prior to its withdrawal (if the processing is consent-based).
Moreover, should you decide that our processing breaches the provisions of GDPR, you have the right to submit a complaint to a data protection authority.
Automated data processing (profiling)
Your personal data will be processed in an automated way (including profiling), however this will not cause any legal or other serious repercussions for you.
Profiling of personal data performed by TME means we process your data (including in an automated manner) and use it to assess some information, in particular to analyse or forecast personal preferences and interests.
Fuses are one of the simplest, yet most commonly used protections of electrical installations. They are also an affordable solution. To make the selection easier for all those interested, below we present a brief overview of industrial fuse links.
ETI POLAM, the manufacturer of the presented components, is a Polish company which is a branch of the Slovenian ETI ELEKTROELEMENT corporation. The activity of ETI POLAM is focused on the production of components for protecting electrical installations and equipment, as well as their operators. Apart from the offer discussed below, these include contactors, overcurrent and residual current circuit breakers, motor circuit breakers and many other products that are available directly from TME's warehouses.
In our catalogue you will find all the elements that are necessary for the assembly of fuses: fuse holders, fuse links and covers. When deciding to use this solution, you should first select a fuse link with the desired parameters, and then choose the mounting accessories that will allow you to mount the fuse in a safe way, e.g. in a cabinet with a DIN rail. The fuse links discussed here are available in the sizes specified in the IEC 60269 standard relating to the design and characteristics of low voltage fuses. Examples of the dimensions are shown in the table below.
An important parameter that allows to determine if the fuse link is suitable for protecting the circuit is the K-factor. It is a multiple of the link's rated current for which the circuit break time will be less than 5 s. For example, gF (fast acting) type fuse links have a very low K-factor of approx. 2.5. This means that a fuse link with a rated current of 100A will disconnect the circuit through which a 250A current flows, in up to 5 seconds. This characteristic is particularly important for the protection of long (e.g. in rural areas) electrical networks. Small cross-section wires and transformers are used, whose short circuit currents are slightly larger than the rated current of the fuse links. In TME's offer you can also find full-range, gG time-delay fuse links, designed for the protection of cables and installations.
Another example of specialised protection are the gTr fuse links, which are used to protect 50kVA to 1000kVA transformers. They are designed to allow for a nominal overload of distribution transformers. Similarly: aM industrial fuse links are designed exclusively for motor protection. Their specification allows for uninterrupted operation of the installation in the range of starting currents – however, they effectively protect the contactors and the drive unit itself in case of a short circuit.
Products by ETI POLAM are precisely calibrated devices designed to protect power supply and electrical installations as well as machines. In the TME catalogue you will find many complementary ETI brand products. They include other types of fuses, overcurrent and residual current circuit breakers, as well as their accessories (such as auxiliary and signalling contacts). We made sure that the same manufacturer's motor circuit breakers are available from our catalogue. There are also 2-, 3- and 4-pole ETI contactors available from our stock. The comprehensive offer is complemeted by numerous housings for modular apparatus designed for wall mounting.
An effective process that minimizes downtime will accelerate the return on costly investments.
Powered equipment places different demands on cells in terms of capacity, voltage or short circuit current.
