A rotary arc interrupter is described in which the magnetic field is generated by a current other than the fault current flowing through the coil. This is shown to have advantages not only at low currents, less than 500 A, but at higher currents up to a few thousand amperes, resulting in a significant increase in arc rotation speed. Information on the arc shape and speed is obtained from optical fibres viewing close to the arc
