New article by an electrical engineer from Venezuela. Thank you to all the experts who participate in this community! Enjoy and  don’t forget to leave a comment if you  want to share your thoughts on the electrical contactor.

Nowadays, there is an increasing need for users to take control of the comfort and safety systems installed in their area (air conditioner, lightning, and others) [1]. There are powerful reasons for this, the main one is the birth of a new trend, that goes back to the year 1999 [2], known as Building Automation Systems (BAS). This is related to the need of having control over systems by adding a special panelboard, like a PLC, a relay, a control panel, among others.

 Low voltage circuit breakers basics

Back to basics with our fellow member Pablo who chose to tell us about the different types of low voltage circuit breakers… Enjoy!

Every day there is more variety of electrical products including circuit breakers, sockets, switches, and others. Regarding breakers, they vary according to the manufacturer, which has led me a couple of questions:

What are the differences between them? Are they interchangeable? Why choose a particular manufacturer? What are the types? I will start with low voltage circuit breakers.

Did you ever wonder about partitioning of low voltage switchboards? This important process is explained below by Eric S. who sent an article to the EEC team last week.

You too can be published in the blog, just send us a mail and we’ll discuss about it :)

Partitioning of low voltage switchboards is very important because of the following four important reasons:

As we all have learnt earlier, circuit breakers are generally used to safeguard electrical equipment from voltage spikes.

In this article, one of the member of the community Eric S. will discuss about the different methods that are used to secure low voltage circuit breakers in a typical setting.

You can also send us articles in our boxmail, we will publish it with great pleasure.


There are four standard ways of securing low voltage circuit breakers. They are:

  • Securing with the help of bolts
  • Securing by bolting circuit breakers to bus bar
  • Securing by stab locking breakers to bus or any other receptacle connection
  • Securing by mounting the breakers on din rail
