Where can I find the earth loop impedance (Zs) for the GV2 TeSys motor circuit breakers?

The charts below detail the Earth Loop impedance (Zs) for the GV2 range for any TN system based on the British Standard BS7671:2008+A3:2015

Two documents are also attached:
1) Sheet with Zs charts of Tesys motor circuit breakers:
  • Tesys GV2
  • Tesys GV3
  • Tesys GV4
  • Tesys GV7
  • Tesys U
2) Explaination of the calculation of the maximum Earth Loop Impedancee
This also includes additional information about:
  • Motor Rated devices
  • Ambient Temperature
Tesys GV2 Range
Please refer to the charts below that detail the maximum earth loop impedance Zs for 0.4s disconnection time with Uo 230V
