CHANHASSEN, MN – Electrical components distributor Waytek, Inc. has presented Mechanical Products with Waytek’s Product of the Year Award for 2023 for the Series 87 Family of heavy-duty marine-rated circuit breakers.

The Product of the Year Award recognizes the supplier that has distinguished itself with an innovative product that delivers outstanding value to customers and by demonstrating a strong commitment to excellence and collaboration with Waytek. The Series 87 was selected for the award for its high quality, utility, and quick acceptance by Waytek customers.

“The Series 87 has filled an urgent market demand for marine-rated circuit breakers of high quality and availability,” said Rob Iversrud, Product and Category Manager, Waytek. “Series 87 circuit breakers meet stringent marine requirements while introducing new, competitive features. We are honored to work with Mechanical Products as a valued partner who brings new solutions to our customers and increases the product range available at Waytek.”

The Series 87 is a heavy-duty, switchable, high-amp circuit breaker that features a manual reset with an On-Off switch function. It is available in panel mount or surface mount options.
