Reasons for installing miniature circuit breakers in Home

The main advantages of the MCB are as following.

1. Higher Sensitivity

The mcb circuit breaker is much more sensitive to current than the old fuse. It will detect any abnormal changes in the flow of current and will automatically switch off the circuit. The MCB can do this with much more accuracy and reliability than the traditional fuse. It can detect faults or overloads and cut off electricity. It has much higher sensitivity compared to the fuse. Using the fuse can be much less reliable.

Another advantage of using the MCB is that it allows you to identify the zone or room in which there has been a fault or short circuit. The fuse can never help you determine where the fault has been. Once the fuse wire is burnt, you will have to locate the cause of the fault in the entire building before fixing the fuse again.

2. Easier Resumption

When you use a mccb circuit breaker, it is easy to resume the supply. All that is needed is to switch the knob back on. If the fuse wire blows, it will be required to replace the entire fuse wire again. This is a time consuming process. You will have to take the complete handle out to fix the fuse. The MCB has a simple interface and you can easily switch the knob back on.

Besides, you will not be able to rewire or replace the fuse unless you have detected where the problem is located. This means more delay because you will first have to locate what caused the problem. If you have an MCB in your home, the supply can be restored quickly by quickly identifying the cause and fixing it.

3. Safety

It is also much safer to handle the mcb electrical board than the fuse. Removing and fixing the fuse requires touching the wire. Although this is done after disconnecting from the supply, there is always the risk of touch the wire while fixing the fuse back on. In the case of the MCB, all that is required is to switch on the plastic knob. There is no need to bother with the wire. Besides, the fuse has to be replaced every time and this increases the cost of maintenance.
