Issue:
 I would like it to mimic a thermal magnetic type breaker with a  Powerpact P and P frame electronic trip breaker.   Is there a chart to indicate the settings?

Product Line:
Any electronic breaker

Environment:

Cause:

Resolution:
There is no chart currently available showing settings to mimic a standard Thermal magnetic breaker. Refer to product data bulletin 0600DB0106.

To approximate settings on electronic trip breaker use the following:
Longtime pickup  1.0 or use a lower setting if you want a lower amperage for smaller load
Longtime delay    maximum value
Short time pick up  maximum value (basically defeating short time since inst will be set lower than this max value, a thermal mag breaker does not have short time.)
Short time delay maximum value and the ON/IN delay type
Instantaneous  usually in the 4-8 range
