Hydraulic-magnetic and Magnetic Overcurrent Circuit Breakers

Hello,
I am looking for an hydraulic-magnetic overcurrent circuit breakers for my bow thruster. I already have one for the windlass ( ETA 8345-F01A-U0T1-282013-125A ) and I don't know if such exist for a bowthruster. The power is 4,3kW (the Quick manual for the BTQ-85-DP says it requires an 500 Amps fuse). I know Beneteau (I own one) install such circuit breakers for the MaxPower bow thruster but what are the ref/specs ?
Can someone help me ?

Thanks

Did you ever find this breaker? I am looking for the same as I need to replace a broken one on a Jenneau and everywhere I look online no one appears to have stock.

Re: Hydraulic-magnetic and Magnetic Overcurrent Circuit Breakers

Hello SV Demeter,
Sorry for my late reply, I didn't notice your answer/question

I found this ETA circuit braker in som local electric resellers but the price was very expansive (more than 200 + shipment). And as far as I can see, this product is very low quality for marine application.

However , Radiospares (and some other online resellers) can sell this product if you wish to use the same one.

I changed my mind and I installed an ANL fuse....

I've never seen breakers that big used on a boat. I use ANL fuses for thrusters.

Smac : i've got one installed on mine this is the propre fuse required by the manufacturer technical specifications (quick btq85dp-185 : 4300W /12V = 360A peak 360* sqrt(2) = 500 wich is the spec written)
