Is a two step stored energy mechanism available in the PowerPact P frame breaker?

Issue:
Is a two step stored energy mechanism available in the PowerPact P frame breaker?

Product Line:
PowerPact P frame breakers

Environment:
This applies to new factory assembled PowerPact P frame breakers.

Resolution:
Yes, however they are available only as factory installed in a new breaker as the breaker block is different from a standard PowerPact P frame breaker with a toggle mechanism.
Electrically operated P-frame circuit breakers are available only in I-Line and unit mount construction up to 1200 A. These come equipped with a two-step stored energy mechanism and a spring-charging motor.   If a drawout version is required, use Masterpact NT.
Electrically operated P frame breakers contain a spring charging motor (MCH), a shunt trip (MX) and a shunt close (XF) and are available in standard or communicating versions. All 3 items (MCH, MX and XF) must be of the same voltage. An SDE overcurrent trip switch is also included. When remote indication of the circuit breaker status is required, add an OF auxiliary switch for on-off indication. A second shunt trip of a different voltage or a undervoltage trip (MN) can also be added to the breaker.
