How to choose the right circuit breakerreliable protection starts with correctly sized breakers
The following table outlines MGI’s minimum breaker sizing recommendations for various electrical inputs.
|Electric motors (variable torque)|
|Resistive loads (standard lighting)|
|Spotlights or high-current resistive loads such as amplifiers||follow only the wire and breaker size recommendations of the load manufacturer|
Always follow the load manufacturer’s guide for your specific load over that of MGI’s general recommendations.
