  • 2. What is a circuit breakerWhat is a circuit breaker??  AA circuit breakercircuit breaker is an automatically-operatedis an automatically-operated electrical switch designed to protect an electricalelectrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overload or shortcircuit from damage caused by overload or short circuit. Its basic function is to detect a faultcircuit. Its basic function is to detect a fault condition and, by interrupting continuity, tocondition and, by interrupting continuity, to immediately discontinue electrical flow.immediately discontinue electrical flow.

  • 5. Parts of Circuit breakerParts of Circuit breaker 1. Actuator lever - used to manually trip and reset the circuit breaker. Also indicates the status of the circuit breaker (On or Off/tripped). Most breakers are designed so they can still trip even if the lever is held or locked in the "on" position. This is sometimes referred to as "free trip" or "positive trip" operation. 2. Actuator mechanism - forces the contacts together or apart. 3. Contacts - Allow current when touching and break the current when moved apart. 4. Terminals 5. Bimetallic strip 6. Calibration screw - allows the manufacturer to precisely adjust the trip current of the device after assembly. 7. Solenoid 8. Arc divider/extinguisher Parts of circuit breaker:Parts of circuit breaker:
