What is MCB? MCB or Miniature Circuit Breaker is an electromechanical device which protects an electric circuit from an overcurrent. The overcurrent in an electrical circuit may result from short circuit, overload or faulty design. In short, MCB is a device for overload and short circuit protection. They are used in residential & commercial areas. Just like we spend … [Read more...] about MCB (Miniature Circuit Breakers) – Types, Working and Trip Curves
