Italian term or phrase:armadio protezioni elettriche
"quadri elettrici di potenza, quadri di controllo, armadi protezioni elettriche, cassette di raccolta, sistemi di eccitazione, trasformatori ecc."
there's power protection cabinet (ppc) but i'm not sure it's the same thing.
CIRCUTOR has built into one single small piece of equipment, the performance of any instrument found on any distribution and control board (protection boards, motor and pump control, overload and earth leakage distribution boxes, etc.), in a size and price which will make any board, no matter how small, be incomplete without the presence of the CVM-MINI

Explanation: "protezioni elettriche" are
automatic circuit breakers, trip switches, fuses, automatic disconnects etc.
things that provide "protection from short circuit and overload conditions"
