Circuit breakers are an essential device in the modern world and an important part of the safety in electrical systems. They protect circuits from melting under excess currents.
Square D is one of the oldest and most trustworthy manufacturers of electrical equipment. In fact, the Square D circuit breakers catalog contains modern models of all circuit breaker types. They are some of of the most popular, in-demand products on the market.
Circuit breakers do not last forever, however, and it is important to know when it’s time to replace yours. A few issues to keep an eye out for include:
- A burning smell or a breaker that’s hot to the touch
- Frayed or worn-out wires
- Wires missing insulation
- Black/burned material
- Malfunctioning behavior
A good sign of a malfunctioning circuit breaker is repeated tripping. Having your power flickering on and off is a good indicator that this is happening.
If you want to replace or upgrade an old circuit breaker, buying surplus and refurbished circuit breakers can save you both time and money. Be forewarned, however, that experts recommend you do not mix and match circuit breakers due to possible compatibility problems and issues with warranties.
Relectric Supply is a market leader for recertified, refurbished and obsolete circuit breakers. We are also one of the nation’s leading suppliers of new surplus circuit breakers by Square D.
Refurbished molded case circuit breakers are completely broken down and cleaned. The components are then re-assembled and tested to original equipment specifications. The test reports are available online, and everything is backed up with a warranty.
Molded Case Circuit Breakers
Molded case circuit breakers are low-voltage and one of the most popular brands available from Square D. These models are flexible, smart and modern. They offer high performance for numerous applications.
