Circuit Protection

Circuit protection devices like breakers and fuses are used to safeguard electrical circuits from damage caused by overcurrent, overload, or short circuit. They are essential components in any electrical system to prevent excessive current flow that can lead to overheating, fires, or damage to electrical components.

General Information

  • Breakers or circuit breakers, are automatic electrical switches designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by excess current. They work by interrupting the flow of electricity upon detecting a fault condition.
  • Fuses are safety devices consisting of a wire or strip that melts and interrupts the circuit when too much current flows through it, thus preventing potential hazards.
