Distribution Boards and Breakers
Most of us have heard the term DB and breakers, some of us are familiar with the full form and might be aware of the functions. But not all of us know what a DB stands for or what are its functions. So, without wasting another second, let’s get straight to the topic.
DB is short for distribution board, sometimes also known as a distribution panel or box. Coming to its functions, it generally serves as a distributor of electrical supply to different circuits in a building, either residential or commercial. Generally, two types are in use. First, there is the single door available in 4, 8, 16-way configurations ideal for domestic use. Then, there comes the double door mostly recommended for commercial use where a fairly large number of electrical connections is required.
Features of DB & Breakers
Before we dive into the features, just a brief overview of how things work in general. Whether it is a residential or a commercial building, in modern times electricity is the most basic necessity. So, without any doubt, a building will have a mains electrical power supply system. What it does is that the main power cable is connected with the distribution board, which distributes power to secondary circuits through breakers and fuses. It is this distribution panel that controls and provides the required voltage and current to all the appliances and equipment which run on electricity.
Now coming to breakers, a distribution board will be incomplete without a circuit breaker or a fuse in some cases. There is always a chance of an electrical system overloading, despite all the precautions. Modern circuit breakers are among the most reliable and popular choices, not only there are a lot of different options, they are considered an efficient way of safeguarding your house or workplace. A circuit breaker cuts off all the power in the event of overloading. The biggest advantage of a breaker is that it can be reset to normal after the problem has been resolved apart from it can keep the household as well the appliances safe from the dangers of overloading.
