What is a Circuit Breaker?
A circuit breaker is a built-in circuit safety device that will automatically stop the current from flowing when it detects a fault. In a sense, circuit breakers are switching devices that can detect abnormal and faulty current and interrupt it when necessary. If a circuit breaker is not installed, wiring issues and faults can cause many problems. It is a significant component that the highest safety standard regulations recommend. You will typically find it housed within an electrical panel box.
