What is the terminal temperature rating on Powerpact M, P, and R frame circuit breakers?

Inquiry:
What is the terminal temperature rating on Powerpact MG, MJ, PG, PJ, PK, PL, RG, RJ, RK, and RL circuit breakers?

Product Line:
Powerpact M, P, R circuit breakers

Resolution:
The termination rating for these circuit breakers is 75 deg. C. 
This means that if terminated with cable, the insulation rating must be 75 deg. C or greater, and the conductor size must be based on its 75 deg. C ampacity. 
Circuit breakers rated above 125 deg. C are required to be suitable for 75 deg. C wire and need not be so marked.
