Class Information
Number: 335/26
Name: Electricity: magnetically operated switches, magnets, and electromagnets > Electromagnetically actuated switches > Automatic circuit-interrupting devices (e.g., circuit-protective devices) > With latch or trip means > Reclosing or resetting
Description: Subject matter wherein the structure includes significant means whereby after an automatic disconnection of the main contacts, upon the occurrence of a fault or surge in the circuit, the contacts are automatically reclosed to restore service in the event that the fault has been removed; or means whereby the latching mechanism is reset to an operative condition whereby the contact actuating means will be rigidly held in an operated condition upon the contacts being reclosed.
