Circuit Breakers

A circuit breaker is a type of switch designed to disrupt electrical current when an overload or short occurs. The circuit breakers carried at Del City are primarily automotive circuit breaker options, but can also be used in a variety of other electrical applications requiring circuit protection. Most DC circuit breaker options are thermally controlled, meaning during an over current condition, the additional current will cause excess heat to build up in the circuit breaker. With this excess heat, the breaker will trip, making it an essential safety component providing thermal overload protection to diverse applications including, marine, automotive, ambulance fire equipment, portable generators, and other electrical applications. Listed below are all the types of circuit breakers Del City offers. Characteristics differ across the circuit breakers offered at Del City, but all are single pole. The different characteristics of each of the types of circuit breakers provide you with different benefits for different applications that require DC circuit breakers. Differences between each offering can include voltage range, amperage range, mounting style, compatibility and blade types. The automotive circuit breaker variety offered by Del City allows the right protection needed for many different electrical application demands. The high amperage, mid-range and some low amperage breaker switches are designed to be panel mounted or surface mounted. Blade types are designed to be inserted into fuse panels. With so many options, finding a compatible type of circuit breaker is easy. Some of the offerings below are specifically meant for wet environment or marine applications, while others are meant to be used as automotive breaker switches. Many of the DC circuit breaker options offered are 12v circuit breaker switches. However, there are a variety of voltages available to meet the demands of multiple applications.
