Resolution:
Consider these factors when you choose the size of the line circuit breaker:
- nominal input current (Imrs)
- signaling current (I)
- current characteristic (It)

The choice of minimum circuit breaker size is made according to these rules:
- IN circuit breaker size greater than the power supply nominal input current (lrms)
- maximum circuit breaker size greater than the power supply signaling current (I)
- current characteristic (It) at point A of the curve greater than the power supply characteristic (It)

NOTE: Protect all poles of the main power line by at least fuses or breakers rated 15 A for North
America and 16 A for other countries.
