Is measuring velocity important on vacuum breakers at the distribution level?

 

Yes. Velocity is important to all circuit breakers. When evaluating vacuum circuit breakers, motion and subsequently velocity is often not measured. Additionally, the manufacturer may not give you any specifications for the velocity. It is still an important parameter that you can trend to verify correct operation. Even though the manufacturer may not provide velocity specs, they may still provide stroke and overtravel specifications.
