Can a motor operator be added to the Powerpact P frame? Or must it be ordered with the breaker? <br />

Issue:
Field installation of a motor operator on a P-frame breaker

Product Line:
Powerpact P frame breaker

Environment:
Molded Case Circuit breaker

Resolution:
The breaker must be ordered with the motor operator. It can not be added after the breaker is built. 
The motor-operated P-frame breaker has a completely different operating mechanism than the non-motor-operated. Motor operated breakers have a two-step stored energy mechanism, whereas the standard breaker has a toggle mechanism.
