What I'm reporting may be already known to the more knowledgeable members of this forum but it was news to me. I experienced a simple short in a bedroom wall circuit that seemed to trip a circuit breaker in the regular panel. However no breaker was tripped yet the outlets in that room were all dead. I didn't even think to look at the UTS 10BI as I thought it's protective behavior was only when my generator was the power source. However, as I learned from a licensed electrician, the fuses on that circuit in the UTS open faster than the breakers can and it was the replacement of that fuse that returned service to that room. So as a rule, at least for me, when I experience a current loss due to a short I'll check the UTS first.
