Circuit Protection Devices

Circuit Protection Devices are available in a variety of types, shapes and specific current ratings. A fuse is the most common protection device. A fuse is placed in an electrical circuit, so that when current flow exceeds the rating of the fuse it “blows” or “blows out.”

Eaton Cutler Hammer Panelboard Breakers (Bolt-on, Bolt-In)
Eaton Cutler Hammer Panelboards are enclosed assemblies for lighting and distribution that accept incoming power and consist of a series of circuit breakers and/or fusible switches. These devices protect each circuit by providing overcurrent and short-circuit protection.

Eaton/Cutler Load Center Breakers (push-in, stab-in)
Eaton/Cutler Load Center Breakers have a twin neutral design that is located in the wireway, away from circuit breakers, which means there is easier wiring and balancing of the load. There is an extra 1.5-inch knock-out for bundling allows maximum wiring gutter space for ease of wiring in compliance with NEC requirements.

Siemens Panelboard Breakers (Bolt-on, Bolt-In)
Siemens Panel Board Breakers (Bolt-on, Bolt-In) provide a manual means of energizing and de-energizing a circuit. Panel Board breakers provide automatic over current protection of a circuit. Panel Board breakers allow a circuit to be reactivated quickly after a short circuit or overload is cleared.

Circuit Breakers
Circuit Breakers are automatically operated electrical switches that are designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overcurrent or overload or short circuit. Its basic function is to interrupt current flow after protective relays detect a fault.

Siemens Load Center Circuit Breakers Type Q (Push-in, Stab-in)
Siemens Load Center Circuit Breakers Type Q plug in circuit breakers are intended for use in Siemens EQ, Siemens Ultimate, ITE, and Gould load centers or meter combinations. The usage of Siemens breakers is required.

Circuit Breaker Misc
Circuit Breaker Misc includes accessories that go with circuit breakers. Some examples would be a coil and a trip tool.

Fuses
Fuses are a safety device that consists of a strip of wire that melts and breaks an electric circuit if the current exceeds a safe level.

Lightning Protection
Lightning Protection protects a structure from damage due to lightning strikes by intercepting such strikes and safely passing their extremely high currents to ground. Lightning Protection are used to prevent or lessen lightning strike damage to structures.

Surge Protection
Surge Protection is an appliance or device designed to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes. A surge protector attempts to limit the voltage supplied to an electric device by either blocking or shorting to ground any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold.
