Notes:
1. Curve accuracy applies from 20C to +55C ambient. Temperatures above +85C cause an overtemperature protection trip. For possible continuous ampere dertaing for ambient above 40C,
refer to Eaton.

2. Application frequency is 50/60 Hz.


3. There is a memory effect that can act to shorten the long delay. The memory effect comes into play
if a current above the long delay pick up value exists for a time and then is cleared by the tripping of
a down stream device or the circuit breaker itself. A subsequent overload will cause the circuit breaker
to tripin shorter time than normal. The amount of time delay reduction is inverse to the amount of
time that has elapsed since the previous overload. Approximately five minutes is required between
overloads tocompletely reset memory.

The left portion of the curve is shown as a multiple of the long delay setting.
(long delay pick up = 115% of In ). Range is 110%120%.

Notes:

300

1. Curve accuracy applies from 20C to +55C ambient. Temperatures above +85C cause an overtemperature protection trip. For possible continuous ampere derating for ambient above 40C, refer
to Eaton.

200

2. Application frequency is 50/60 Hz.


3. There is a memory effect that can act to shroten the long delay. The memory effect comes into play
if a current above the long delay pick up value exists for a time and then is cleared by the tripping of a
down stream device or the circuit breaker itself. A subsequent overload will cause the circuit breaker to trip
in shorter time than normal. The amount of time delay reduction is inverse to the amount of time that
has elapsed since the previous overload. Approximately five minutes is required between overloads to
completely reset memory.

4. The right portion of the curve is determined by the interrupting rating of the circuit breaker.

5. The left portion of the curve is shown as a multiple of the long delay setting
(Long delay pick up = 115% of I r). Range is 110%120%.

10. For high fault current levels an additional fixed instantaneous hardware override is provided
(corresponding to SDPU position nine) at 12x ( I n) and designated as 12 I i . Instant aneous tolerance is +/20%.
11. For LD response and SD with flat response curve, see:

14. Digitrip RMS 310+ trip units are suitable for functional field testing with test kit Cat. No MTST120V.
