I need to find out the clearing time for a 480V 1200A PJ breaker w/ a MicroLogic 6.0P trip unit when subjected to an overvoltage. <br />I need to include the reaction time of the trip unit and the opening time of the breaker.<br />

The minimum guaranteed clearing time for a Powerpact breaker tripping on an overvoltage condition is 1.2 seconds intentional delay plus 20% tolerance or 240 ms, plus breaker opening time of 16 ms. This adds up to 1.46 seconds.
