MCCB (Moulded Case Circuit Breaker)
One such control device is the circuit breaker, an electrical switch which is self-operating and once it detects a fault, interrupts the current. Just as an automobile seat belt and airbag are safety factors while driving, the circuit breaker is a safety measure when using electric power.
The MCCB is meant for energy-intensive systems and therefore suitable for Commercial and Industrial applications.
The MCCB can carry a rate of current as high as 2500 amperes with an operating current range of 25 to 630 amperes. The MCCB can additionally possess an electric trip. With an MCB, the trip setting cannot be adjusted. On the other hand, higher models of MCCB’s come with adjustable trip circuits, giving one far greater flexibility and the best options for high-powered equipment.
