A newly granted patent (Publication Number: US11887801B2) discloses an electronic circuit breaker with advanced features. The circuit breaker includes a circuit board with a wireless communication circuit comprising multiple antennas for receiving control signals, a power amplifier, a low-noise receive amplifier, frequency filters, and a microprocessor. The microprocessor generates trigger signals to activate a relay circuit that controls the circuit breaker's ON/OFF state based on the received control signal. Additionally, the microprocessor is equipped with pins connected to LEDs to indicate the circuit breaker's status, and a push button switch allows manual control. The patent also details methods for remote control via a native mobile app, including security code verification, power supply monitoring, error code generation, and alert message transmission.

Furthermore, the electronic circuit breaker's wireless communication circuit features an inter-integrated circuit (I2C) interface for data and clock signal communication between the microprocessor and the wireless circuit. This I2C circuit enhances the efficiency of data transfer and connectivity within the circuit breaker system. The patent also describes various methods for receiving control signals, such as through different antennas tuned to specific frequencies, including cellular, digital cellular network, wireless networking, and dual-mode low range antennas. These advanced features highlight the innovative design and functionality of the electronic circuit breaker, making it a promising development in the field of circuit protection technology.
