Working Principle of Cable Ties and Circuit Breaker

By | September 6, 2018

There are a wide range of parts and articles used in electrical circuits, thus making it a complex assembly. But, each and every part has a specific role and task to perform in successful run of the entire circuit. Let’s focus on two such prime components Cable ties and Circuit breakers which are part of each and every complex electric system.

Cable ties are bonding components which are used to hold multiple wires or cables. As number of wires or cables increase in an electrical system, their complexity increases too. So they should be properly bundled and bonded not only from maintenance point of view but also from identifying

point of view for repairing. Cable ties acts as industrial zips which has wide range of application. In common, widely used cable ties are made of sturdy nylon with an integrated gear rack at one end which hold the ratchet at the other end firm making a perfect gear lock. Presence of gear rack also helps in increasing or decreasing the size of the tie.

These breakers are prime component of any electrical system. It has wide range of applications from domestic use to industrial usage. Circuit breakers act as a safety device in case of electric overload and short circuit. It cuts down the power supply breaking the circuit in case of electrical exigencies. The breaker breaks the circuit automatically but resetting them again could be either manual or automatic based on the type of requirement and type of circuit breakers used. Circuit breakers are made in different sizes, from small devices that protect a household appliance up to large switchgear type which are designed to protect highly complex, high voltage circuits feeding electrical supply to entire city. There are different types of circuit breakers but all have the same basic principal of operation. In general, these breakers contain a trip solenoid which releases a latch in case of complex voltage conditions. These are usually powered by a separate battery.
