A circuit breaker is an automatically operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overload or short circuit. Its basic function is to detect a fault condition and interrupt current flow.

Colonel Jack O'Neill and Sergeant Sylvester Siler were seen attempting to use a circuit breaker to shut down the Stargate which had connected to a planet with a black hole. (SG1: "A Matter of Time")
