Circuit Breakers

Sensata Technologies’ Maxi Breaker Series of circuit protectors are rated for use up to 125ºC. This patented device is available both as a cycling (SAE Type 1) and non-cycling (SAE Type 2) device.
Typical placement of the Maxi Breaker is under the hood fuse blocks or other areas of the vehicle that house a Maxi Blade Fuse*.
The Maxi Breaker protects against momentary overloads and eliminates the need for fuse replacement.
