A MCCB is an electrical protection device that protects an electrical circuit from damage caused by overload or short circuits. It is a circuit breaker type, a switch that can be opened and closed to control the flow of electricity in a circuit. The MCCB is designed to automatically detect a fault condition, such as an overload or short circuit, and open the circuit to prevent any further damage. It is typically used in commercial and industrial applications where the circuit is expected to draw more current than a standard circuit breaker can safely handle. The MCCB is capable of handling up to about 1000 amps.
Electricity, since the time of its inception, has transformed the world, impacting lives of people.However, it’s a source of limitless power that needs to be controlled and used wisely and safely while conserving it at the same time. Ergo, the increasing demand for electrical devices that fulfill this purpose. MCBs and MCCBs are such important tools that are developed to safeguard electrical equipment and prevent mishaps.
MCCB which also stands for Moulded Case Circuit Breaker, is an advanced version of MCB. It is essentially an electrical protection device that aids in isolating the electric current in a circuit in case of current overload, short circuits and other electrical faults. The major difference being it usually has an adjustable trip system. Since, MCCBs has a wide range of frequencies and voltages and can be used for low as well as high breaking capacity requirements, making it preferable for multiple industrial applications.
Simply explained, MCCB has two elements – Thermal and Magnetic, which are temperature sensitive and current sensitive respectively. These elements in coordination constitute the trip mechanism for protection and isolation of the electrical equipment. It fundamentally performs three functions based on the sensitive element in operation.
MCCB are high-duty protection devices that are meant to handle higher level current flow. There are many advantages of using MCCB due to its specific features in industrial setups such as:
