  42. 42. Simple Circuit Breaker
  43. 43. Simple Circuit Breaker• When the live wire carries the usual operating current the electromagnet is not strong enough to separate the contacts.
  44. 44. Simple Circuit Breaker• If something goes wrong with the appliance and a large current flows the electromagnet will exert a strong magnetic force to separate the contacts and break the circuit. The spring then keeps the contacts apart.
  45. 45. Simple Circuit Breaker• After the fault is repaired, the contacts can then be pushed back together by lifting a switch on the outside of the circuit breaker.
