Air Circuit Breakers

Air Circuit Breakers (also known as an Air Blast Circuit Breaker or ACB) is an automatically operated electrical switch that uses air to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by excess current from an overload or short circuit.

Its primary function is to interrupt current flow after a fault is detected. When this happens, an arc will appear between the contacts that have broken the circuit.

Air circuit breakers use compressed air to blow out the arc, or alternatively, the contacts are rapidly swung into a small sealed chamber, the escaping of the displaced air, thus blowing out the arc.
