What is unrestrained tripping time of breaker with ZSI?

The unrestrained tripping time of a standalone molded case circuit breaker that has zone selective interlocking (ZSI) capability, but which has no self-interlocking jumper installed, is 4 cycles at 60 Hz (or about 70mS).  In this described condition (no self-interlocking jumper installed to jumper Zin to Zout) the breaker will not allow any timers for programmable delay time to function; the breaker will ignore any programmed delay time.
