Access to electricity has become an entirely necessary and pivotal part of keeping up and operating within any modern commercial or industrial business or even just performing day-to-day tasks in a home. Despite this point, however, electricity is inherently quite volatile, and so it must be precisely contained and planned for, and potential risks have to be mitigated. Many devices have been created to perform the function of electrical safety, the most popular and common of which is a circuit breaker.
What Is the Function of a Circuit Breaker?
In its simplest form, a smart circuit breaker is an automatic circuit protection system. Breakers are installed in an electrical panel (breaker box) and each circuit is attached to a singular breaker. The breaker will monitor the circuit and in the event of a complication such as an overload, the breaker will immediately shut off that circuit. This is often colloquially called a "breaker trip" or "tripping a breaker" and it commonly happens when appliances or equipment acts up or too many high-power draw tools are placed (plugged into) a single circuit.
Think about a home outlet with a space heater, a television, and a vacuum all plugged into it. This would almost certainly cause a breaker trip, which will shut off access and operation of that circuit until the problem is fixed and the breaker is reset and placed back into position.
There are many types of circuit breakers such as Ewelink WIFI Circuit Breaker, Tuya WIFI Circuit Breaker, RS485 Circuit Breaker, Remote Control Circuit Breaker, Zigbee Circuit Breaker, Automatic Recloser Circuit Breaker, etc.
Another widely used equipment is smart relay. Look around you. Smart relays are everywhere! You can find them in lighting controls, ice-making machines, grocery store mist systems, and more. And there's a good reason: They meet all safety requirements, while at the same time saving you time and money.
What is a smart relay?
The smart relay is a small-scale PLC designed for use in industrial environments. It is also called mini PLC or logic relay in the electrical market. This intelligent logic module is the ideal controller for simple automation tasks. There may not be a need for too many inputs and outputs in a machine or an electrical panel. Simple operations can also be performed by programming smart relays.
The PLC measures and evaluates the events, changes, and movements in the field with various measuring devices. It then interprets it in itself and transfers it to other devices that it commands in the field. Collection and transfer of information can be done analog or digitally. For example, data from the sensor can be transferred to a valve. PLCs should be preferred if the system to be controlled is larger and requires more operations. It can also be devided into many types like Ewelink Smart Relay, Tuya Smart Relay and so on for different models.
