Break arcs are generated between carbon contacts in a DC48V and 10A resistive circuit. The external transverse magnetic field formed by a permanent magnet is applied to break arcs. The position of the cathode spot region of the break arcs occurring between carbon contacts is investigated and the following results are shown. The cathode and anode spot regions moves together with and without the magnetic field. The position of the break arcs just before arc extinction tends to shift upward with increase of the magnetic flux density of the transverse magnetic field.
