Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter
Power circuit breakers can be classified in many ways based on features such as voltage class, construction type, interrupting type and structural features. The US Census separates power circuit breakers in two primary segments, power circuit breakers, all voltages and molded case circuit breakers 1,000 volts or lower. This industry does not include power circuit boards that are integrated in panelboards nor distribution switchboards. These products are included as part of the greater Electrical Equipment Manufacturing industry (IBISWorld report 33531).
