Breaker Panels, Breakers and Fuses (224)
Safely distribute power using breaker panels that control various circuits. They give users the ability to centrally switch on or stop power supply to other parts of the home or office. Some are easy to install without bolts. Their plastic compression moulded housing is durable. The material has high thermal and fire resistance for increased safety. The panels have colour-coded handles for easy identification. Different colour-coded handles represent various ampere ratings. Electrical breaker panels protect the circuits by limiting the amount of external electricity flowing. They have fast response times, and some are capable of trip reactions of within 1/60 of a second. Panels quickly identify the tripped circuit breaker using internal trip mechanisms and thermal-magnetic trip protection, among others.
Fuses and breakers are compatible with particular load center panels. Select from a wide voltage capacity for different applications. Single pole breakers reduce the number of callbacks and the chances of other circuits being turned off accidentally. They are suitable for lighting and receptacle circuits in a home. Consider using double pole breakers in lighting and distribution panelboards and meter centres. They also serve large appliances such as dishwashers and ovens. To ensure safety in areas such as bathrooms where a fatal shock can occur, install Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) breakers that are highly sensitive and act quickly.
Protect bedrooms and common areas using arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCI) that shut down power to circuits with worn or damaged wires. HACR type breakers are available for use with air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration equipment that employs motor group combinations and is marked for use with HACR type circuit breakers. Choose from a wide range of breakers that match the ampere rating and the maximum interruptive capacity of your system for efficiency and to prevent damage. Use a tamper-resistant self-test GFCI receptacle to lock-out function and protect wrongly wired line-load connections and GFCI circuitry damage.
