Class Information
Number: 200
Name: Electricity: circuit makers and breakers >
Description: This is the generic class for devices, per se, of general application which are used for closing or opening electrical circuits and the combination of these devices with their operating means. In the combined devices there must be something more than the mere inclusion of a circuit maker or breaker broadly.
