image

Fuses and breakers come in all shapes, sizes, formats and ratings. Wading through all of the different options can be mind boggling when designing an electrical system or upgrading and servicing existing systems.

The Complete Guide to Overcurrent Protection takes a deep dive into the defining standards, selection and installation practices of overcurrent protection (OCP) devices and will calm your anxiety when specing out a design.

Topics covered:

  • Where OCP is required to be implemented in your system
  • How the location of an OCP device effects the ratings that it must meet
  • Sizing OCP for different applications
  • How different types of OCP work
  • The Difference between fuses and breakers
  • What it looks like when OCP isn't used
