What Is a Circuit Breaker?
A circuit breaker is a switch that trips automatically when needed to prevent electrical circuitry overload. Fuses operate in a similar manner, but they are single use and must be replaced after breaking a circuit. Your home’s circuit breakers, located inside your metal breaker box in a wall, can reset themselves (or be manually reset by you) to continue operation. Fuses and circuit breakers are examples of Automatic Disconnection of Supply, or ADS, devices.
