What is D-Time?

D-Time is the starting Delay Time taken by a Motor to reach its normal running current.

Normally during starting the Motor draws much higher levels of current and the D-Time setting is to ensure that the EOCR does not trip the motor before this time has elapsed.

This prevents nuisance trippings during the starting period. After the set D-Time has elapsed the EOCR monitors the normal currents.
