Those listed PSX trip currents are if you use jumpers to set them. If you use CV49 you have more options including 2.54 The manual is available online to download.

So the most conventient setting without a software programming is jumpers.  If the EB1 allows me to set 2.5 amps with jumpers, and the cost is significantly lower, it's probably my go to solution.  But good to know the addtional info on the PSx.

Do you ever get down to Richmond?  I've got 4 PSX's and a PSX-AR I'm not going to use that you're welcome to if you'd like them.

I have the right to remain silent.  By posting here I have given up that right and accept that anything I say can and will be used as evidence to critique me.
