Re: More on fuses.

  Second try:
  The '95 Potter & Brumfield Data Book states that the W23 and W31 breakers
"Cannot be reset against overload". The W33 rocker style is "Trip free". The
W28 and W58 are "push to reset only". How does this differ from the previous
designations? All of these mention a "Resettable overload capacity" of from
6-10X rated current, depending on the rating. What does this term mean?

Jim Glindemann brings up a good point about "trip free" breakers.  If you
look up circuit breakers in the DigiKey catalog it doesn't tell if they are
"trip free" or not.  Know what you're getting!
