Customer wants an P frame Powerpact breaker with ground fault alarm without tripping.

Issue:
Ground Fault Alarm only

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:
Electrical Distribution Equipment

Cause:
Notification of ground fault but no trip on ground fault, alarm only on ground fault.

Resolution:
Use 5.0P trip unit (S163A) and a M2C (S64273) or M6C (S64204). If replacing a standard trip unit (not A, P or H), the 12-pin connector for the trip unit (kit S33101 for Masterpact, S33100 for Powerpact) must also be ordered.

Set alarm up via trip unit Amperage Protection menu (trip curve button). Then set up S1 or S2 contact on 2PCM programmable contact module in MAINTENANCE menu (wrench button). Need neutral CT if it is a 4 wire system.
