Inside a "Current Limiting" Type Circuit Breaker

The following images show some details of a 1000 Amp Frame Circuit Breaker - with interchangable Magnetic Trip Modules (this one is an 800 Amp module), and uses "Current Limiters" in the lower end (Load Side) of the Frame.

The "Orange Tubes" are the Limiters.
