Can a shunt trip accessory be provided on the Main Breaker of a QO or Homeline, Single Phase load center?

Issue:
Product Design feature

Product Line:
QO load centers

Environment:
Main breaker accessories

Cause:
Application

Resolution:
The Older Series 001, 002 or A02 Homeline main breaker load centers used a HOM2100, HOM2125, HOM2150 or HOM2200 main breaker. These main breakers do NOT have a shunt trip accessory available.
For the more recent or current series 'S' load centers that use a QOM1 Frame main breaker, a shunt trip accessory is NOT available.

For the more recent or current series 'S' load centers using the QOM2 Frame main breaker a shunt trip accessory is available factory installed ONLY or a replacement QOM2 main breaker can be obtained with the shunt trip factory installed.

If wanting to order the complete load center with the shunt trip factory installed on the main breaker, use the suffix '1021' with the load center catalog number. For example, QO140M2001021.
If ordering a replacement main breaker only, order the main breaker catalog number with the suffix '1021'. For example, QOM2200VH1021. See current digest for ALL QOM2 main breaker catalog numbers. 

NOTES: 
1) If a shunt trip is needed for the QOM1 Load center application, consider using a separate circuit breaker enclosure for a QO breaker with a shunt trip upstream of the load center.
