    I want to know what is the meaning of "trip point" in the next paragraph.
    It is related to circuit breakers. Also if you know what does (In) mean I dont know what they are trying to say in the sentece "Instantaneous trip is 5 to 10 of devie (In)"

    expected. Instantaneous trip is 5 to 10 x rating of device (In). Applications

    and coils. Medium magnetic trip point
