Time Delay Curve Descriptions


Time Delay Curve AD, AA BA MD, MA With Inertia Delay (F) Common curves used in molded-case circuit breakers. Response to overcurrent is quite fast. Suited for protection of semiconductor circuits with very little overload tolerance. If overcurrents are expected to ow, fuses may be required according to the circuit characteristics. Suited for motor loads that draw high inrush currents lasting a considerable length of time. Designed not to trip on 20 times the rated current (peak value) for a duration of 8ms. Suited for transformer and lamp loads that draw steep inrush currents. NRA Application

Inertia Delay Description


Circuit breakers equipped with inertia delay do not respond to high inrush currents such as those produced by transformer, lamp, or motor loads, but perform specied interruption on rated overcurrents. Specify inertia delay by inserting an F in the part number as shown in Part Number Guide on previous page.

Notes Multi-Pole
Multi-pole types such as 2- or 3-pole should be assembled by IDEC. Because of their characteristics, 1-pole breakers cannot be combined to provide multi-pole units.

Voltage Drop Due to Resistance or Impedance


The internal resistance or impedance of a circuit breaker tends to be larger for a smaller rated current. Therefore, when circuit breakers with a small rated current are used, voltage drop should be taken into consideration. Internal resistance also varies with time delay curves, even at the same rated current. This should also be considered during installation.

Time Delay Curve and Ambient Temperature


Since NRA series circuit breakers employ an electromagnetic tripping system, the rated current (trip current) is not affected by the ambient temperature, but the time delay varies with the oil viscosity in the tube. Lower oil viscosity at higher temperatures results in shorter delay; whereas at lower temperatures, the delay will be prolonged. The time delay curves, shown starting on page 888, are at 25C. Time delay curves can be corrected.

Time Delay Curve Descriptions


Time Delay Curve AD, AA BA MD, MA With Inertia Delay (F) Common curves used in molded-case circuit breakers. Response to overcurrent is quite fast. Suited for protection of semiconductor circuits with very little overload tolerance. If overcurrents are expected to ow, fuses may be required according to the circuit characteristics. Suited for motor loads that draw high inrush currents lasting a considerable length of time. Designed not to trip on 20 times the rated current (peak value) for a duration of 8ms. Suited for transformer and lamp loads that draw steep inrush currents. NRBM Application

Inertia Delay Descriptions


Circuit breakers equipped with inertia delay do not respond to high inrush currents such as those produced by transformer, lamp, or motor loads, but perform specied interruption on rated overcurrents. Inertia delay is available with time delay curves AD, MD, AA, BA, and MA. Specify inertia delay by inserting an F in the part number as shown in Part Number Guide on previous page.

Notes Multi-Pole
Multi-pole types such as 2- or 3-pole should be assembled by IDEC. Because of their characteristics, 1-pole breakers cannot be combined to provide multi-pole units. All multi-pole units are simultaneous break/simultaneous make, with levers mechanically interlocked.

Auxiliary and Alarm Contacts


Multi-pole units with auxiliary contacts will have one set of auxiliary contacts on the right-most breaker. Multi-pole units with alarm contacts will have one set of alarm contacts on the left-most breaker.

Temperature Correction Curves Voltage Drop Due to Resistance or Impedance


Change of time delay (%)

The internal resistance or impedance of a circuit breaker tends to be larger for a smaller rated current. Therefore, when circuit breakers of a small rated current are used, voltage drop should be taken into consideration. Internal resistance also varies with time delay curves, even at the same rated current. This should also be considered during installation.
Timers

Curves AA and AD, BA,MA and BD


At the minimum operating current (125% current)

Time Delay Curve and Ambient Temperature


Since NRBM series circuit breakers employ an electromagnetic tripping system, the rated current (trip current) is not affected by the ambient temperature, but the time delay varies with the oil viscosity in the tube. Lower oil viscosity at higher temperatures results in shorter delay; whereas at lower temperatures, the delay will be prolonged. The time delay curves, shown starting on page 897, are at 25C. Time delay curves can be corrected.

Circuit Breakers
Instructions: All Series
General
IDECs circuit breakers have been developed for the protection of electrical circuits and small-sized electrical equipment and provide excellent protection against overloads and short-circuits. Additionally, IDECs circuit breakers are designed to suit specic needs. Each series offers unique circuit protection characteristics and a choice of actuator styles.

Instructions

Applications
The IDEC NRA circuit breaker series features superior overload and short-circuit protection. Many combinations of protection mechanisms and internal circuit connections enable wide applications. Precision measuring instruments: electronic counters, projection instruments, oscilloscopes, industrial instrumentation, and analytic devices Industrial machinery: printers, elevators, cranes Chemical and food industry machines: vacuum devices, wrappers, centrifuges, agitators Machine tools: mill grinders, drills, presses Business machines: vending machines, beauty salon equipment, entertainment games Other: ofce equipment, air-conditioners, conveyor belts, and many more

How the Breaker Operates


IDECs hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers operate like a solenoid coil. The coil unit consists of an oil-lled tube with a metal core at one end and a pole piece and armature at the opposite end with a spring in between. When a current load passes through the coil winding, it creates a magnetic eld. As long as the current load is either at or below the nominal rating of the breaker, the metal core will remain stationary. If the current load increases beyond the nominal rating, the strength of the magnetic eld causes the core to move toward the pole-end of the tube. The oil viscosity regulates the cores movement through the tube, thereby regulating the time delay. As the percentage of current load increases, the required trip time of the breaker decreases and vice versa. When the current reaches the overload rating, the metal core will meet the pole piece at the opposite end of the tube. At this point, the armature is attracted to the same pole piece, tripping the breaker. In case of sudden short circuit, the magnetic eld created will instantly trip the breaker.

Mounting Instructions: Installation Angle


Designed to be mounted on a vertical surface, the circuit breakers should be mounted on a surface within 10 of the vertical plane. If the circuit breaker is mounted on a horizontal surface or at any angle other than the specied angle, its characteristics will be changed.

Multi-Pole Assemble
Multi-pole types such as 2- or 3-pole should be assembled by IDEC. Because of their characteristics, 1-pole breakers cannot be combined to produce multi-pole units.

Load

Series Trip This is the most common circuit breaker, providing overload and short circuit protection. It can also be used as an ON/OFF switch.

Load A

Series Trip with Auxiliary Contact Since the auxiliary contact operation is interlocked with the ON/OFF of the main contactor, circuit breaker operation can be monitored by a lamp or buzzer. This circuit breaker can also be used to control auxiliary circuits up to 250V AC/5A (resistive load).

Load B

Circuit Breakers

Load A

Load B

Series Trip with Alarm Contact Since the alarm contact is electrically independent of the main contactor, but actuates when the protective element operates. The alarm can be used with a lamp or buzzer to monitor trip operations, and can also be used for controlling alarm circuits. The contact rating is 250V AC/5A (resistive load).
