 Although very reliable, over time & usage, the CB may no longer function at the rated current, requiring replacement of the Circuit Breaker. Although very reliable, over time & usage, the CB may no longer function at the rated current, requiring replacement of the Circuit Breaker.
  
-Starting in 1998, the individual circuits were protected with fuses, while the overall system was still protected with a circuit breaker.

In 2004, the overall system protection was implemented with a Maxi-Fuse.
  
 The following quotation makes the point that fuses are often slow to react to overcurrent situations. It is critical to replace rated fuses with the same rating in order to properly protect the circuits.\\ The following quotation makes the point that fuses are often slow to react to overcurrent situations.
