    What is a current-limiting circuit breaker?

    Issue:
    What is a current-limiting circuit breaker?

    Product Line:
    Molded Case Breaker, Powerpact

    Environment:
    Products sold in North America

    Cause:
    Need to understand the definition of a current limiting breaker.

    Resolution:
    A current-limiting circuit breaker is one that has been certified by UL to limit the let-thru I^2t (I squared t) during a fault to not more than the I^2t available during a half-cycle of prospective symmetrical short-circuit current. Maximum let-through I^2t and peak current levels are published on curves available with the trip curves for the current-limiting breakers.

    The Schneider Electric current limiting breaker now available in North America are the Powerpact HJ/HL/HR, JJ/JL/JR, and LJ/LL/LR frame circuit breakers.
    See Let-Through Current Curves in https://www.schneider-electric.us/en/download/document/0611CT1001 on page 211.

    Other recently obsolescent current limiting breakers also included FI, KI, LI, and LXI.
