A circuit breaker is an automatically operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overcurrent or overload or short circuit. Its basic function is to interrupt current flow after protective relays detect a fault. Unlike afuse, which operates once and then must be replaced, a circuit breaker can be reset (either manually or automatically) to resume normal operation. Circuit breakers are made in varying sizes, from small devices that protect an individual household appliance up to large switchgear designed to protect high voltage circuits feeding an entire city. The generic function of a circuit breaker, RCD or afuse, as an automatic means of removing power from a faulty system is often abbreviated to ADS (Automatic Disconnection of Supply).Penz Nigeria Limited Supplies Original Circuit breakers in Nigeria from reputable Brands Like ABB,Schneider, Legrand and Himel Circuit breakers.We have in stock and for supply in Nigeria  ABB circuit Breaker,Schneider Circuit Breakers and Legrand Circuit Breakers and Himel circuit breakers
