Spanish translation:¿Cómo funcionan los cortacirtuitos automáticos limitadores de corriente?
Explanation:
Circuit breakers are the ones that help to prevent short circuits when electrical equipment fails, thus preventing a fire or something like that. Circuit breakers work automatically, so usually translations include the word "automático". As an electronics engineer, I can tell you in Mexico we use the term "interruptor de luz" or "switch", altough some technicians use "breaker" as well.

interruptor de corriente límite


Explanation:
las explicaciones anteriores están bien, pero el interruptor en realidad no limita la corriente, sino que abre el circuito cuando la corriente alcanza un valor límite. Mucha suerte
