General Electric Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers are devices designed to protect electrical circuits from overloads, short circuits, and other faults by automatically interrupting the flow of electricity when a fault is detected. GE has offered a wide range of circuit breakers with various features and specifications to cater to different needs. These circuit breakers are used in electrical distribution systems to ensure safety and reliability.

GE's circuit breakers may include features like:

  1. Types: GE produces various types of circuit breakers, including miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) for residential applications, molded case circuit breakers (MCCBs) for commercial and industrial applications, and more advanced solutions like air circuit breakers (ACBs) and vacuum circuit breakers for high-power applications.

  2. Current Ratings: Circuit breakers come with different current ratings, indicating the maximum current they can handle without tripping. GE offers a range of current ratings to match the specific requirements of different electrical systems.

  3. Voltage Ratings: Similar to current ratings, circuit breakers also have voltage ratings. GE's offerings cover a wide range of voltage levels to suit various applications.

  4. Trip Characteristics: Different circuit breakers have different trip characteristics, such as thermal, magnetic, or a combination of both. These characteristics determine how quickly the circuit breaker will trip in response to different fault conditions.

  5. Communication and Connectivity: Some modern circuit breakers are equipped with communication capabilities that allow them to be monitored and controlled remotely as part of a smart grid or building management system.

  6. Protection Features: Circuit breakers from GE and other manufacturers are designed to provide protection against overcurrents, short circuits, ground faults, and other electrical faults. They help prevent damage to equipment and reduce the risk of electrical fires.

  7. Arc Fault and Ground Fault Protection: Advanced circuit breakers can also provide protection against arc faults and ground faults, which are potential fire and safety hazards in electrical systems.

  8. Accessibility and Installation: GE circuit breakers are designed for ease of installation and maintenance, with features like easy-to-access terminals and clear labeling.
