Episode 9 - How Breakers Work & What's Inside A Breaker

This episode is all about breakers, from the outside-in. I cover the differences between single-pole, two-pole, and 3-pole breakers. I talk about how a breaker is a simple spring-held mechanical switch that operates by an internal electromagnet.

Finally I take a Square D single-pole breaker apart and show you how a breaker trips, and how the mechanics of the inside of a breaker works.
