ELQ Earth Leakage Breakers

The ELQ breaker (safety switch) combines overload, short circuit and residual current protection (earth leakage) in one compact unit in a single pole configuration. This style of circuit breaker, which has become mandatory in new installations, safeguards people from the danger of electric shock by instantly interrupting the electrical circuit to the load when a fault current to earth exceeds the rated sensitivity which is usually expressed in milli-Amp (mA).
