Which DB boards are best to buy?
A distribution board (also known as panelboard, breaker panel, or electric panel) is a component within the electricity supply system that divides an electrical power feed into different circuits while providing a protective fuse or circuit breaker for each circuit — all within a common enclosure (electrical box).
Circuit breakers are electrical switches that are designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overcurrent/overload or short circuit. It functions by interrupting current flow after protective relays detect a fault, so that instead of transferring that heat to the appliances and electronic items plugged into your outlets — causing them to burn out or potentially cause a fire — circuit breakers trip the power source, shutting off the electricity to your home or electrical zone within a building from the distribution point.
Circuit breakers come in a range of sizes, based on the different uses your project may require it for (and in conjunction with how it is paired with your distribution board).
We at BUCO can help you sort your electrical requirements from almost 80 items across a wide range of voltage, outputs, and specifications.
