Thermal magnetic circuit breakers, which are the type found in most distribution boards, incorporate both techniques with the electromagnet responding instantaneously to large surges in current (short circuits) and the bimetallic strip responding to less extreme but longer-term over-current conditions.
Circuit breakers protect cables and lines against the effects of overload currents and short circuits. They provide reliable protection for buildings, systems, and in particular people.
The thermal portion of the circuit breaker provides a time response feature, that trips the circuit breaker sooner for larger overcurrents but allows smaller overloads to persist for a longer time.
This allows short current spikes such as are produced when a motor or other non-resistive load is switched on.
With very large over-currents during a short-circuit, the magnetic element trips the circuit breaker with no intentional additional delay.
Protect your electrical equipment and yourself.
Protect from short circuit which can happen from:
Damaged electrical equipment
Animals caused short circuit for example: Lizard, Cockroach, Rat, etc...
Human caused short circuit or getting electrocuted, child playing or putting their figures in socket
