Circuit breakers with "C" characteristic
Overcurrent circuit breakers of the "C" characteristic are used to protect against the effects of short circuits and overloads of installations of devices with high starting currents. The operating limit of the thermobimetallic release is from 1.13 to 1.45 times the rated current, and the operating limit of the electromagnetic release is from 5 to 10 times the rated current of the circuit breaker.
