Can a 5.0 or 5.0A trip unit be used for ground fault alarm without tripping?

Issue: 
How to set up and test ground fault alarm in Micrologic trip units

Product Line:
Molded Case and Air Circuit Breaker

Environment:
5.0 and 5.0A trip units for Powerpact P, R and Mastepact NT, NW breakers

Resolution:
No. Neither the 5.0 nor 5.0A trip units can be used because those trip units do not have the required programming functionality.
To get ground-fault alarm, replace the trip unit with a 5.0P or 5.0H trip unit, add an M2C or M6C programmable contact module, and program the trip unit for the alarm.
