What replaces the Compact CM breaker? Are any parts or accessories still available?

CM breaker is obsolete
Compact CM breakers are obsolete and no parts are available.
The replacement is the Powerpact R frame breaker. Ratings, dimensions, mounting, and options are different.
For applications 65 kA and 100 kA @ 480V, use the RLF type. For applications between 35 kA and 65 kA, use the RKF type.
Catalog number selection requires crossing over a CM catalog number, or knowing the ratings and standard, trip unit functions, and accessories.
Motor operators are not available for the Powerpact R. If motor operation is required on a breaker larger than 1200A, it is necessary to use a Masterpact NW.
