What is the Watts-loss or heat dissipation value for Masterpact NW and NT circuit breakers?

Issue:
What is the Watts-loss or heat dissipation value for Masterpact NW and NT circuit breakers?

Product Line:
Masterpact NW and NT circuit breakers

Environment:
Electrical distribution systems

Cause:
Heat dissipation is sometimes needed to determine the cooling requirements of the equipment room.

Resoluton:
We do not have published values for UL or ANSI rated Masterpact breakers.  Values for IEC breakers are attached.  Because of differences in the standards and breaker construction, the IEC values will not be accurate for UL and ANSI rated breakers, but they will be close for breakers of similar construction.
