Circuit breakers for motors and starters


Circuit breakers for motor protection and starter combinations

A circuit breaker is an electromechanical switching device to switch the circuit of a machine or installation on or off. In case of a short circuit or overload the circuit breaker switches off automatically. This protects the installation and the load. The circuit breaker is also used for the safe separation of the installation from the mains for maintenance and changes or for switching machines with limited switching frequency under normal operating conditions. It is differentiated between circuit breakers for motor protection, so-called motor-protective circuit-breakers, with integrated overload monitoring and circuit breakers for starter combinations for mere short-circuit protection.

Industrial use of circuit breakers

Circuit breakers are used in almost all fields of industry. For example:

  • as motor-protective circuit-breakers for drives
  • as circuit breakers for transformers
  • as protectors for starter combinations

The screw connection technology allows easy mounting and wiring of the circuit breakers.
