Miniature circuit breaker
Overload protection, or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs): ‘…provide the most modern form of electrical current overload protection by detecting a fault condition and interrupting the current flow. MCBs replaced cartridge fuses and the original wire fuses (these simply melt when overheated) which formed the earliest form of protection.’
