  • Understanding National Electric Code (NEC) tap rules How do they apply to circuit breaker terminals?
    Circuit breakers are often used to supply current to. more than one load. This separation of the circuits can occur directly from the load-side cable terminals of the circuit breaker.
  • Moisture Measurement in SF6 - A Permanent, Environmentally Safe Solution (.pdf)
    Most electric utilities and independent power producers use Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) as an arc quenching and insulating gas in high voltage circuit breakers and switchgear installed in their electrical transmission and distribution systems. These circuit breakers require periodic maintenance
  • Medical Device Link .
    to compensate for the possibility of incorrect wiring or crossed wire colors somewhere in the building. If the equipment is wired incorrectly, operators using a device with a single-pole circuit breaker are at risk of electric shock when it trips. Two-pole circuit breakers provide a much safer
  • Tackling the Dirty Dozen
    overcurrents. Main applications include machinery or vehicles with high-current in-rushes that accompany starting of electric motors, transformers, and solenoids. Thermal-magnetic circuit breakers combine the benefits of thermal and magnetic types. High overcurrents make the solenoid trigger the release
  • Ground-fault interrupters
    Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs), also called earth leakage or residual-current circuit breakers, can sense leakage current to earth ground from live parts and interrupt the circuit automatically when leakage current exceeds a predetermined value. A core-balance protection device serves
  • Electrical Troubleshooting
    Links added in the last 30 days Was equipment running when problem occurred? Does the Operator know what caused the problem, and if so, what, in their opinion, caused the problem? Is the equipment out of sequence? check to ensure there is power turn on circuit breaker, ensure motor disconnect
