What does the suffix 1042 mean?

Issue:
What is the suffix for the 12 Vac/dc or 24 Vac/dc shunt trip on QO/QOB breakers?

Product Line:
Miniature Circuit Breakers

Environment:
QO/QOB Circuit Breaker

Resolution:
A molded case circuit breaker with a 1042 suffix has 24Vac shunt trip in the left pole. Suffix 1018 would have the shunt trip in the right pole.
However, a 1042 suffix on the QO breakers is a shunt trip rated for 24 Vac/dc
