Today I am sharing a double pole mcb wiring diagram. In which I will shown the complete method of wiring of double pole MCB (Miniature circuit breaker). As you know that we use the double pole mcb circuit breaker as main circuit breaker in our single phase distribution board. We can also use this type of breaker for DC supply switching and also we can use it for single phase machine or single phase induction motor controlling or switching on/off.

As I told that we use this breaker as main circuit breaker in our single phase distribution board. In single phase wiring we have two main supply wire in which one is Neutral (N) and other is Phase (P or L). This breaker has 4 terminals or connection point. Two for entering the supply and two for output supply. This breaker is installed between the way of electric supply and we can switch on/off the power supply form this breaker. This is too important to install a double pole mcb breaker in our one phase distribution or main board. Because we can switch off the power supply during the new electrical wiring connection or other electrical installation or maintenance work. And we can work safe by switching off this main circuit breaker. That’s why I am writing the post about double pole mcb wiring diagram.
