Issue:
Is remote (electrical) operation possible for the Powerpact RG (R Frame) circuit breakers?

Product Line:
Powerpact RGF, RJF, RKF, RLF circuit breakers

Environment:
Electrical distribution systems

Cause:
Electrical operation of circuit breakers is a common request

Resolution:
Powerpact R frame circuit breakers do not have an electrical operation option.  They may be equipped with a shunt trip (open coil) but they do not have an option for a motor or close coil.
For remote operation of circuit breakers larger than 1200 A, it is necessary to use the Masterpact NW with appropriate accessories.
