Can compression lugs be used on Powerpact P frame and R frame breakers in I-Line panels?


Issue:
Compression Lug

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers
I Line Panelboard

Environment:
Electrical Distribution Equipment

Cause:
Compression Lug installation requirements.

Resolution:
Yes, they can but they require use of an End Gutter Box Extension.
Compression lugs extend beyond the load end of a circuit breaker.  An end gutter or side gutter box extension is required to meet electrical code wire bending requirements.  

When a factory-assembled panelboard with compression lugs is specified in Quote-to-Cash, the Panelboard Product Selector will automatically configure the necessary box extension(s).
I-Line panelboards are cULus listed with mechanical or compression lugs.

For additional information on the gutter extension required data bulletin in technical library on I line Panelboards Compression Lugs.
