Circuit Breaker Works in Slow Motion

We have done a teardown of a 100 amp breaker in the past but it is really interesting to see how they operate in slow motion. Warped Perception has taken a common 15 amp breaker and filmed the 2 states in slow motion. Breakers trip with a slow overload condition which takes a bit of time and a short circuit where the circuit breaker trips almost immediately.
