Issue:  
Can you get lugs rated for 600kcmil cables for a PowerPact P frame breaker for either I-Line or Unit Mount?

Product line:  
PowerPact P frame breakers

Environment:  
Both unit mount and I-Line PowerPact P frame breakers

Cause:  
Require 600kcmil lugs for a PowerPact P frame breaker.

Resolution:  
The PowerPact P frame's standard lugs are rated up to 500kcmil.  

Optional lug kits to accommodate 600kcmil cables are available.  For I-Line use AL800P6K.  It will accept 2 - 600kcmil cables.  This lug can not be used on the line side of a unit mount breaker but can be used on the load side.  Another lug is available for unit mount breakers that will accept up to 3 - 600kcmil cables.  It is AL1200P6KU and can be used on either the line or load side of the breaker.  This lug can not be used on I-Line breakers.  

The P frame breaker however can NOT accept 4 - 600kcmil cables.  You would have to use an R frame to accommodate 4 - 600kcmil cables.
