Compact Circuit Breakers

Powerpact 150A H-frame and 250A J-frame molded-case circuit breakers feature common mounting points and handle locations,


allowing use with standardized mounting pans, door trims, and equipment designs. Both frames are compact and utilize many types of actuation, including cable-operated handles, rotary handles, and electrical motor operators. The changing of terminations from bus-bar to lug applications can take place with a special snap-in design. Field installable accessories include auxiliary switches, alarm contacts, and shunt trips. Both breakers are certified to UL, IEC, CSA and NOM standards and are equipped with a thermal-magnetic trip system that may be field installed.
