What does ELCB mean or stand for ?
An ELCB is an electrical fitting that is placed on the main power supply board of a premises.It is connected to the ground so as to remove any voltage spikes from the circuit.
It looks like a traditional tripper but is much more powerful and overrides all the other circuit breakers that are installed.If there is a surge in electricity it immediately “trips” and disconnected main power to the place where its installed.This prevents shocks as well as damage to other equipment.
