Breaker versus Fuse

Share |


Over the years, circuit breakers have seen significant changes in technology, while fuses (once a fixture in protecting houses) have become nearly obsolete. Why is this? For one, code changes that require arc fault and ground fault protection, as well as arc flash protection in assemblies have driven people to breakers, as fuses are not capable of providing such safety protection.


Future Hi-Tech offers a legacy of years of electrical circuit protection, including our circuit breakers. There are many advantages to choosing our breakers over fuses:
• Less waste (breakers can be reused; fuses cannot and guidelines must be followed for proper disposal).
• Increased safety and equipment protection.
• Improved uptime.
• Sustainability regulations and standards.
• Selectivity and coordination.
