Control Gear

Circuit breakers (which switch and interrupt electrical currents) and their control gear (which switch and control devices that consume power) are all absolutely necessary in any modern abode. Power surges happen all the time, and you need circuit protection in order to prevent damage for your appliances and to avoid disasters like fires. Smaller devices can be sued for many appliances, but some special appliances which use a lot of power will require larger devices.

Some control gear devices are designed to be used manually—you activate them when you notice something is wrong. Others are designed to work when it senses power overloads or overheating.

All of these devices carry out the function that fuses used to perform. However, modern devices are much safer to use and easier to fix than fuses. When a fuse blows, normally you don’t know which fuse is responsible for which power areas in your home. You would have to examine each fuse and see which one is spent or burnt. The fuse would them have to be detached and replaced with a new fuse. With modern circuit protection, a power shutdown confined to one power area is easily dealt with. You just need to check the electrical panel and see which breaker has switched to the off position. You can then just flip it off and on and you can then resume power to that area.
