Why Circuit Breaker Testing is Important

by Protec Tech Team April 23, 2018

Circuit breakers are important devices that interrupt current when an electrical fault occurs. If they fail to operate properly during a fault condition, the electrical system can be at risk of being damaged.   Additionally, the mis-operation of such a device can lead to costly impacts associated with the interruption of electrical service.  Technicians should regularly test for potential problems so the circuit breakers can be verified to operate according to their intended design.  Regular maintenance practices provide the opportunity to identify and correct operational issues and ensure power system reliability.

Rent Eaton Cutler Hammer 70C1056G52 to Test Digitrip Circuit Breakers

by Protec Tech Team March 06, 2018

Circuit breakers are used in homes, office buildings, and electric facilities. These instruments are prone to break down as they gather moisture, contaminants, and dirt while in use. If not maintained regularly, ciruit breakers insulation becomes weak as a result of the heat that is created due to arc interruption. Chemicals like hydrogen sulphide or chlorine can also be major factors in the damage and corrosion of insulation as well as metal components of circuit breakers.
