Issue:
Are the I-Line versions of the Powerpact H, J, and L frame breakers available with a 100% rating?
 
Product Line:
Powerpact H, J, L Frame
 
Environment:
Selecting 100% rated Breaker for an I-LINE panel.
 
Cause:
Breaker specification requires a 100% rating or fully rated breaker in a ILINE application
 
Resolution:
Powerpact H and J Frame I-Line breakers are NOT available with a 100% rating.  
Powerpact L Frame I-line breakers 400A and below ARE available with 100% rating; 600A Powerpact L I-line breakers are NOT available with 100% rating.

Powerpact L Frame I-line breakers with 100% rating are designated by the letter "C" just before the "U" in the catalog number.  For example, LGA36400CU31X is 100% rated, but LGA36400U31X is not 100% rated.
 
NOTE: The standard trip unit is available with a 250A sensor minimum, and the Ammeter and Energy trip units are available with a 400A minimum sensor rating. 
This limits the minimum amperage available for 100% rated I-Line breakers to 70A with a standard trip unit, and to 125A with an Ammeter or Energy trip unit.
