Reductions in manufacturing capacity and component inventories will ramp down towards end of commercialization dates below. This page is designed to assist all customers using legacy F-frame circuit breakers with the transition to PowerPact B or other PowerPact circuit breakers. Refer to the timeline, tools and resources below to support you through the transition period.
As timelines are finalized, dates will be further clarified below.
November 2016: Introduction of PowerPact B
June 2017: Obsolescence of F-frame molded case circuit breakers and switches announced
PowerPact B enclosures available
I-Line F-frame circuit breakers and switches no longer available for purchase
Q2 2019: Unit mount F-frame circuit breakers and switches no longer available for purchase
Finding a Replacement
PowerPact B 15-125A Molded Case Circuit Breakers and switches are the designated replacement for F-frame applications. PowerPact B features increased capacity, a smaller size in unit mount, same size to ease retrofit in I-Line, and a flexible range of field-installable accessories, auxiliaries and operators.
Replacing a F-Frame Unit Mount/Enclosure Installation
Your current F-frame unit mount/enclosure application may require minor adjustments to accommodate PowerPact B due to the smaller physical size of the new circuit breaker.
Two adapter plates are available:
Replacing an F-frame I-Line Installation
No adaption is required if you have an I-Line application. F-frame and PowerPact B I-Line circuit breakers are the same size to ease the retrofit process.
