A shunt release is an auxiliary device that can be added to a DC mini circuit breaker to provide additional protection in case of a fault or overload. It works by tripping the circuit breaker if the current in the circuit exceeds a certain threshold.

Adding a shunt release to a DC mini circuit breaker can be particularly important in applications where there is a risk of a sustained overload, such as in battery charging circuits or in solar power systems. In such cases, the circuit breaker may not trip immediately, even though the current in the circuit is higher than the rated value. This can cause damage to the equipment or wiring and create a safety hazard.

By adding a shunt release to the circuit breaker, you can ensure that it will trip quickly and reliably in case of an overload or fault, providing an additional layer of protection for your equipment and reducing the risk of damage or injury.

An FB (Failure to Break) alarm contact can also be added to the shunt release to provide a signal or indication when the circuit breaker fails to trip in response to a fault or overload. This can help you identify and diagnose problems in the circuit, allowing you to take corrective action before damage occurs.
