Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker

An Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker (ELCB) helps protect people and equipment from electrical shocks. It detects and stops an electrical current that leaks to earth, meaning the current diverts from its intended path and flows into the ground. ELCBs are found in homes and businesses and are located near the main electrical panel. To ensure electrical safety, they should be checked regularly to ensure they are working correctly. Earth leakage can lead to electrical shock and other electrical hazards.
