How can I get trip curves?

Issue:
Where are the TCC time current trip curves?

Product Line:
PowerPact and Masterpact as well as Legacy and Miniature circuit breakers

Environment:
Covers all breakers

Cause:
Need to know if a breaker will trip at a certain ampere rating and what the clearing time is.

Resolution:
Each technical catalog for the various circuit breaker types have trip curves included in their respective catalogs. These trip curve sections are included in this Box folder:

Use the listings in the left column to refine by Product Category, Product Sub-Category, or Product (click the + at the bottom of the listing).

Note:
For HOM breakers, use QO trip curves (same trip characteristics).
For QO-AFI, QO-CAFI, QO-EPD, HOM-AFI, and HOM-CAFI breakers, use QO-GFI trip curves (same trip characteristics).
For QOU breakers, use QO trip curves (same trip characteristics).
For EDB-EPD and EDB-EJB breakers, use EDB trip curves (same trip characteristics).
