 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

Eric S., one of our dear members sent us this article last week. Thank you, it’s much appreciated and we’re sure that you all will love this too. Ready to discover the different way of mounting LV Circuit Breakers?

Low Voltage Power Circuit Breakers

Hi everybody, this is Eric. I think this community is one of the most interesting ever and I wanted to contribute.

Before we go on to discuss about different methods of mounting low voltage circuit breakers, let me give you a brief introduction about low voltage circuit breakers.

Low Voltage Power Circuit Breakers 1

Low voltage power circuit breakers, are essentially the prime electrical devices used in low voltage power distribution systems to protect electrical circuits, and subsequently all electrical equipments, from all types of fault currents, short-circuit and overloads.

Though fuses are also capable of performing the same functions, they have to be replaced each time they detect a fault current or short-circuit, because they get blown off. Unlike fuses, low voltage circuit breakers can be reset to their normal condition, either automatically or manually, after they get tripped due to fault currents, short-circuit and overloads.

Now that we know the importance of low voltage power circuit breakers in protecting valuable electrical equipment, we will now focus on the different methods of mounting them on to the electrical circuits.
