# Circuit Breakers tests

1- For small circuit breakers we can do the test of Magnetic protection behavior by using "Injection Current Apparatus", and suppose the CB's results were good, do you think it's enough? I'm sure not, because by this apparatus we can inject the necessary current with a very low voltage value (5-15V), so, do you think that the arc will be the same if we have the same current but with "400V"?

2- The same question for "Short Circuit Tests"

Personally, I done the tests of many MCBs for different manufactures by using "Injection Current Apparatus", and I saw the same tests in laboratory in France for the same MCBs by injection the same currents values with 230V or 400V depending on the CB, be sure, the results weren't the same, we found some differences for Magnetic protection tests, and big differences for Short Circuit tests.
