Question 10 of 16
What does a fuse or breaker do? What are the differences between the two?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Fuse diverts a high current so no damage is done to the appliance.
2.
A breaker is an mcb which is manually turned off. A fuse blows when it is over rated and needs to be replaced.
3.
A breaker draw amps from the main panel. Breakers are made specifically for particular areas of a building or home.
4.
A fuse and a breaker both protect a circuit in the event of an overload. The main difference between the two is that a fuse can only be used once and then replaced, whereas the breaker can be reused multiple times.
5.
A fuse is something that stops high current going through the circuit so it protects the other parts of the circuit. A breaker is used to protect a circuit from power overload or short circuit that goes through.
6.
Breaker automatically resets itself... Whereas fuse does not do so.
7.
If a circuit overloads, they prevent damage.
8.
They are both used to protect circuits but a fuse and only be used once whereas a circuit breaker and be reset and used over and over again.
9.
As a said I have a strong interest in the electrical field and im looking to put my practical skills in this field of work. I m a hands-on person and like constant change.
10.
An old fashioned fuse has a small piece of wire that burns which triggers it to blow. More modern (and better) circuit breakers react to any kind of earth fault in the system.
11.
Prevents electrical shorts. Fuses are one time use. Breakers can be switched back on.
12.
A breaker stops the current through the circuit and prevents a person suffering serious harm and perhaps death. A fuse is used so that there is not over current and if the fuse breaks than the circuit will also break or stop.
13.
It stops the flow of electricity by disrupting it. Fuse usually melts when stopping electricity and has to replaced and a breaker simply needs to be reset normally.
14.
A fuse has a metal filament inside, in the event of a current overload or a short, the circuit will open due to the protection device aka the fuse. Circuit breakers have a metal lever, activated by a solenoid that attracts the metal lever. Uses a bi metallic strip when heat has been applied by overcurrent.
15.
Circuit breaker opens the circuit for isolation during maintenance or troubleshooting and trips the circuit under an over-current condition. A fuse is a protection device for over currents, short circuits and overloads.

About Electrician Apprentice

May 6th, 2017

Electrician apprentices work as assistants to qualified electricians. Electrician apprentices have the necessary knowledge in this field but they are not qualified or licensed to work as independent electricians. After gaining some experience, most electrician apprentices enroll in an appropriate program, obtain the necessary state license and go on to work as independent electricians.
Anyone wishing to work as an electrician apprentice must be at least 18 years old and have a GED or high school diploma. Most master electricians will ask you to take an aptitude test to assess your on-the-job skills. Critical thinking, troubleshooting, and mechanical skills are basic requirements for the job. Electrician apprentices must also have good color vision.
Your interview for an electrician apprentice job will most likely be conducted by the master electrician who is looking for someone to help them on the job. Check out mock interview questions if you are interested in knowing more about the kind of questions to expect at your electrician apprentice interview.
