Resolution:

You would also need either automatic or remote reset capability. Both of these options can be ordered with the breaker. When the breaker trips on a fault, there is a red reset button located right above the trip unit that pops out. That button must be pressed back in before the breaker can be reset. The automatic reset option prevents the button from popping out on a fault. The remote reset option allows a control voltage to be delivered that will retract the button so that the breaker can be reset. The remote reset option is also available field installed with the following numbers:
