Top MCB Companies – Havells V/S IndoAsian

When setting up a new electrical power system in our new homes or even commercial spaces, we always try and choose the best. Even then, we don’t want to put anyone at risk, install protective devices and take measures to help us deal with sudden accidents. 

Electrical hazards such as overloading, short circuit or leakage can lead to heavy loss of business and human life. Hence, make sure you chose only the best for yourself. 

MCB is one such electronic device used for protection against overload, high voltage, and other such currents. MCB is generally used in households due to their load capacity. 

In this blog, let us look at an MCB and compare top MCB companies- Havells and IndoAsian.

What is an MCB? 

A miniature circuit breaker (MCB) is a safety device that automatically switches off the power supply to the electrical circuit during an unusual condition like overloading or faulty condition. It 

An MCB is used in a low voltage electrical network instead of a fuse because it is more reliable than the fuse. It is also more sensitive to currents. It quickly restores the power unlike in a fuse where it must be re-wired for use again. 

Restoration in an MCB is as easy as turning a switch on/off. It is an electronic component of the integrated circuit board. 

Types Of MCB

In India, there are two types od MCB available- 

  1. AC MCB 

  2. DC MCB

MCBs is available in 16Amp, 32Amp, and 64Amp. Smaller electronic devices like fans, beaters, chargers, kitchen appliances are used to run on 16Amp circuit. 

But heavy devices such as AC, Heater, are used with 32Amp

Lastly, 64Amp is used in commercial spaces.
