Circuit protection is important because it prevents the dangerous consequences of high temperatures, excessive currents and short-circuiting. The process involves adding a weak link to the circuit that will break if any of these events occur. One type of circuit protection is a fuse, which melts in the event of a fault and breaks the circuit. Another is an RCD and RCBO units, designed to detect faults and disconnect the power supply. All of our circuit protection products are BS7671 compliant to ensure your household and commercial electricity is safe.
