Keeping the Power On: An Inside Look at Circuit Breakers

A circuit breaker is an automatically-operated switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from overloading and short circuits. It monitors the flow of current and “trips” or flips to the off position if current exceeds safe levels, cutting power to that circuit. After tripping, the breaker can be manually reset to restore power once the overload issue is resolved.

Understanding the Simple but Versatile Diode

A diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts current in only one direction. It allows current to flow through it in one direction, while blocking current in the reverse direction. This basic unidirectional conductivity makes diodes ideal for converting alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC), managing voltage levels, signal modulation, overvoltage protection, logic gates, and various other circuit functions.

Our Wind Machine Solutions

As we discussed in our previous article, MurCal has partnered with several Wind Machine companies over the past several decades to modernize their equipment with sleeker, more advanced interface options. Wind machines are one of the classic frost protection methods for farmers, pioneered in California back in the 1920s. Windmills are now used in many parts of the world to protect crops from frost and freezing. Almost all of California's citrus orchards are protected by wind machines and this trend is only expanding, and farmers are looking for superior frost protection built to last.
