    Circuit Protection I

    Circuit Breakers

    Sponsored by


    We are living in the age of mechatronics — the intersection of electronics, mechanical engineering and advanced computer control. When electronics design engineers work at their benches, huddled over their breadboards and test equipment, they may increasingly be part of the mechatronic design process, which places value on a cross-functional, interdisciplinary knowledge base. To that end, element14 decided to offer a learning module on circuit breaker essentials for an electronics design engineer community. This learning module will provide you with the essential understanding of circuit breaker protection, arc interruption theory, overcurrent protection, and examples of commonly used circuit breakers in mechatronic product designs.
