In the utility sector, protective equipment includes devices designed to safeguard utility systems from electrical faults and overloads. Such equipment includes fuse links, cutouts, fault circuit indicators, arcing protection, and more. They monitor electrical currents, detect abnormal or unsafe conditions, and act to prevent or limit damage to the network. They're vital for ensuring the safety of utility infrastructure, reducing downtime, minimizing the risk of fires or explosions, and contributing to the reliability and efficiency of power distribution.
