For Powerpact Breakers, will the Direct-Mounted Rotary Handle fit onto an existing Door-Mounted Rotary Handle shaft?

Issue:
For an existing breaker with a door-mounted rotary handle, if the rotary handle needs replacing, will the direct-mounted rotary handle fit into the same place?

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:
Powerpact H, J, L, and P

Cause:
While the Direct-Mounted and Door-Mounted Rotary Handles may appear very similar, there are differences in how they mount to the breaker.

Resolution:
No, the Direct-Mounted Rotary Handle will not fit onto the shaft of an existing Door-Mounted Rotary Handle. The reason is due to how they are installed onto the breaker.
