Cause:
Trip Indicators not working.
 
Resolution:
The battery can be replaced without removing the trip unit. The battery is on the outside edge of the trip unit. The accessory cover must be removed but then the battery can be replaced without removing the trip unit, opening the breaker, etc. Since the door on the equipment and the accessory cover must be removed, the electrician must have the proper PPE (personal protection equipment). The battery is a 7 - 10 year battery and should be replaced during normal MAINTENANCE cycles.
