circuit breaker

listen to the pronunciation of circuit breaker
İngilizce - İngilizce
An electrical switch capable of opening and closing an electrical circuit in all operating conditions, including fault situations
The most common type of "overcurrent protection " A breaker trips when a circuit becomes overloaded or shorts out
An automatic, magnetic, or bimetallic device that will open a current-carrying circuit causing the circuit to become inoperative This device is used to prevent circuit damage under a condition of excess current Unlike a fuse that melts when its rating is exceeded, a circuit breaker can be reset automatically or manually when the circuit problem is corrected
Device in a circuit that opens the circuit, preventing the flow of electricity, so that it will not be damaged by an overload or short
A switch on an incoming power circuit that opens if abnormal circuit conditions arise (such as an overload or short circuit)
a device that trips like a switch and opens the circuit when overloaded
Device used to open and close circuit by non-automatic means, as well as to open circuit automatically on predetermined overload current without injury to itself (when properly applied within its rating)
a device designed to open a circuit either by manual action or by automatic action when current exceeds a value longer than permitted A circuit breaker can provide overcurrent protection
Device that interrupts current if a circuit is overloaded or a short occurs Unlike a fuse, it can be reset
A safety device in an electrical circuit that automatically shuts off the circuit when it becomes overloaded
A resetable fuse for an electrical circuit   See fuse
A device which looks like a switch and is usually located inside the electrical panel or circuit breaker box It is designed to (1) shut of the power to portions or all of the house and (2) to limit the amount of power flowing through a circuit (measured in amperes) 110 volt household circuits require a fuse or circuit breaker with a rating of 15 or a maximum of 20 amps '220' volt circuits may be designed for higher amperage loads e g a hot water heater may be designed for a 30 amp load and would therefore need a 30 amp fuse or breaker also see GFI
Safety device which automatically opens an electrical circuit if overloaded
A circuit breaker is a device which can stop the flow of electricity around a circuit by switching itself off if anything goes wrong. There is an internal circuit breaker to protect the instrument from overload. An automatic switch that stops the flow of electric current in a suddenly overloaded or otherwise abnormally stressed electric circuit. a piece of equipment that stops an electric current reaching a machine if the machine becomes dangerous
A re-settable protection device that amounts to a fuse that never needs replacement (e g , My stereo shop got tired of replacing 50 amp fuses in my system so they went ahead and installed a 50 amp circuit breaker )
An automatic switch that operates like a fuse and interrupts a circuit when too strong an electric current is passing through
CIRCUIT BREAKERS automatically stop the flow of electricity when it senses too much current or an abnormal condition Circuit breakers are located in substations and on transmission and distribution lines throughout Duquesne Light’s system Once a circuit breaker opens, it must be reset before the flow of power can be restored
A procedure that temporarily halts trading on all U S stock markets for one hour when the Dow Jones Industrial Average falls 250 points or more within a trading day The pause is designed to allow time for the markets to absorb the news that precipitated the decline Should the average fall another 150 points within the same day, trading would again be halted, this time for two hours
Simple switch-like device which automatically opens a circuit when the rated current is exceeded as in the case of a short circuit
A mechanically resettable unit that disconnects a circuit at a specifically defined current
-A device that can be used to manually open or close a circuit, and to automatically open a circuit at a predetermined level of overcurrent without damage to itself
A switch that automatically disconnects power to the circuit in the event of a fault condition Located in substations Performs the same function as a circuit breaker in a home BACK TO TOP
The overcurrent protection device (OCPD) most commonly in residential use The circuit breaker can be opened and closed repeatedly to allow or stop power from flowing along the branch circuit Back to alphabetical list
a device which detects excessive power demands in a circuit and self-interrupts when they occur
- A reset-able protection device that stops the flow of current when amperage in excess of it's rating flows through it
A resettable device that responds to a preset excess of current flow by opening the circuit thereby preventing damage to circuit elements
A system of trading halts and price limits on equities and derivative markets designed to provide a cooling-off period during large, intraday market declines The first known use of the term circuit breaker in this context was in the Report of the Presidential Task Force on Market Mechanisms (January 1988), which recommended that circuit breakers he adopted following the market break of October 1987
an automatic switch which operates like a fuse and interrupts a circuit under an infrequent abnormal condition [return to top]

plural form of circuit breaker
circuit-breaker
Alternative spelling of circuit breaker
residual current circuit breaker
(Elektrik, Elektronik) A residual current device (RCD), or residual current circuit breaker (RCCB), is an electrical wiring device that disconnects a circuit whenever it detects that the flow of current is not balanced between the phase ("hot") conductor and the neutral conductor. The presumption is that such an imbalance may represent current leakage through the body of a person who is grounded and accidentally touching the energized part of the circuit. A shock, possibly lethal, is likely to result from these conditions; RCDs are designed to disconnect quickly enough to prevent such shocks
circuit breakers
Measuring used by some major stock and commodities exchanges to restrict trading temporarily when markets rise or fall too far and/or too fast
circuit breakers
Cut off the current if it reaches dangerous levels
circuit breakers
In response to the market breaks in October 1987 and October 1989, the New York Stock Exchange instituted several circuit breakers to reduce market volatility and promote investor confidence
circuit breakers
are a device to help alleviate the burden of property taxes Senior citizens or other residents whose income is below a certain amount get, for example, income tax refunds when the property taxes paid exceed a certain percentage of income
circuit breakers
Measures instituted by the major stock and commodities exchange to halt trading temporarily in stocks and stock index futures when the market has fallen by a specified amount within a specified period Circuit breakers were instituted after Black Monday in 1987 and were modified following another sharp market drop in October 1989 Their purpose is to prevent a market free-fall by permitting a rebalancing of buy and sell orders

circuit breakers
over-current components that trip to open the circuit and protect other electrical/electronic components from excess current flow; see fusesCircuit breakers can be reset after they "trip" to continue protecting the circuit
circuit breakers
Circuit breakers are the switches found in the electrical service box of homes Each circuit breaker protects a specific group of electric devices (outlets, overhead lights, appliances, etc ) If the devices draw too much power, the circuit breakers will shut-off ("trip") the power to all the devices to which it supplies electricity Once the problem has been fixed, the circuit breaker can be "reset " When working on home automation projects that involve the home's wiring the respective circuit breakers should always be turned off manually to avoid electrocution Caution: some wall boxes contain more than one switch or outlet, and these may receive their power from different circuit breakers Always turn off all electric current to the wall box being worked on
circuit breakers
Procedures established to forestall the market from spiraling down Circuit breakers will "kick-in" when the market has dropped by a specific amount within a certain period At that time, the major stock and commodities exchanges will temporarily stop trading in stocks and stock index futures to give floor traders time to rebalance buy and sell orders Circuit breakers were introduced in 1987 after Black Monday The levels were revised when the market had another steep drop in October 1989
circuit breakers
A complex series of rules adopted by securities and futures exchanges, in the aftermath of the 1987 Dow Jones crash, in an attempt to slow down market activity during periods of high volatility
