What happens if you have to break with a short circuit load?


It will form an arc with a lot of energy. The best way to extinguish it is with permanent magnets by dragging the arc to the arc chamber where the arc is extinguished. An arc extinguishing contactor in air can handle the energy better than gas filled ones as the expanding gases in the arc can be vented.
