- Reusability: MCBs can be reset after they trip, while fuses must be replaced.
- Selectivity: MCBs can be designed to trip in a specific order, preventing the entire electrical system from shutting down in the event of a fault.
- Sensitivity: MCBs can be set to trip at a lower current than fuses, providing more precise protection.
MCBs work by monitoring the current flow in a circuit. If the current exceeds a certain level, the MCB will trip, opening the circuit and stopping the flow of electricity. This protects the circuit from damage caused by overloads and short circuits.
MCBs are typically mounted on a distribution board or consumer unit. They are available in a variety of sizes and ratings to suit different applications.
Here are some of the benefits of using miniature circuit breakers:
- Protect electrical circuits from damage
- Prevent fires
- Reduce downtime
- Improve safety
MCBs are an essential part of any electrical installation and help to ensure the safe and reliable operation of electrical equipment.
