Making a Case for Electronic Circuit Protection Migration

Here's a reader question for which we need some expert advice:

"We provide a lot of after-sales support for our machines. One of our headaches is control circuit (24 V) protection, particularly identifying and troubleshooting blown circuits. The other part of this that's becoming a pain is stocking and supplying lots of types of fuses and circuit breakers. We know we can justify the extra costs for both our customers and ourselves if we migrate to electronic circuit protection. How do we make that case to our customers?

Send us your comments, suggestions or solutions for this problem. We'll include it in the July 2013 issue, and post it on Send visuals if you'd like - a sketch is fine. E-mail us at Please include your company, location and title in the response.
