English term or phrase: circuit breaker

Por lo general suelo traducir "circuit breaker" como "disyuntor", pero me pregunto si es el término más adecuado cuando se trata de un componente de un "SWITCHBOARD".

Por ahora me he decantado por conmutador de potencia. (busco un término de uso común en España).

No tengo mayor contexto, salvo "Always leave the circuit breaker both in the Service or Test Position, and never in an intermediate position in the cubicle."

En teoría, el "circuit breaker" puede verse en el siguiente enlace:

(Se está extrayendo del cubículo del "switchboard" y colocándose sobre un carrito. Ha de ser esa pieza de color rojo ladrillo o marrón...)
