To determine the trip current rating, which is the value at which the minimum current to trip an overload relay, you would multiply 1.25 times the minimum full load current shown for the thermal unit selection. For example, to calculate the thermal units needed for a magnetic starter that has a service factor of 1.25 and a full load current of 26 AMPS, you would multiply 26 times 1.25 and that would result in a trip current rating of 32.5 AMPS.
