Circuit breaker is a more commonly used product in life, is in the circuit system to play the role of on-off, control or protection of electrical appliances, circuit breaker has many types, including plastic case circuit breaker and leakage circuit breaker is more common, the following to explain the difference between the two.
Plastic case circuit breaker is generally used in DC circuit system, used to power distribution or prevent motor overload, overvoltage, undervoltage or short circuit. The short circuit cutting capacity of the plastic case circuit breaker can reach 100KA. It is generally used as a line that is not frequently connected and broken.
The leakage circuit breaker is mostly used in the AC circuit, and its cutting capacity is not more than 5KA. For example, when the platform current of the two and three phase power line exceeds the provisions, it will trip, which can prevent electric shock accident very well.
The above is about the difference between plastic case circuit breaker and leakage circuit breaker, my company specializing in the production of various types of circuit breaker, regular manufacturers, quality rest assured, if necessary, you can contact online.
