Circuit Breakers by EATON CUTLER-HAMMER
About Circuit Breakers
Circuit Breakers are an important safety feature in any electrical system. They are designed to protect wiring, appliances, and other electrical components from being damaged by an overload of electricity or a short circuit. Circuit Breakers can be used in homes, businesses, industrial plants, and other areas where electricity is needed.
Types of Circuit Breakers
Circuit Breakers come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the job they need to do. For example, 1 pole circuit breakers are typically used for smaller loads like lighting circuits while 5 amp breaker square D are usually used for larger loads like air conditioners. AC breakers offer more protection against power surges than all breakers do.
How Circuit Breakers are Made
The construction of a Circuit Breaker involves the use of several materials such as copper wire and conductive metals to create the internal components that will detect an overload or short circuit. A spring-loaded switch is then connected to the contacts so that it can trip when the current exceeds its rating.
Industries that use Circuit Breakers
Circuit Breakers are commonly found in many industries including manufacturing plants, power plants, oil refineries, aerospace facilities, automotive shops and more. Professionals who work with these types of machines rely on circuit breakers to protect their equipment from damage due to electrical surges or shorts.
