Product Line:
Powerpact P and R, and Masterpact NT and NW Circuit Breakers
Micrologic Trip Units 5.0A, 5.0P, 5.0H, 6.0A, 6.0P, 6.0H

Resolution:
The AMS switch is designed to be factory installed in Switchboard and Switchgear. It can be installed in the field but it requires a breaker with an A, P, or H trip unit and purchase of the following:
  • Restraint Interface Module (RIM), catalog number S48890 (120 Vac/24 Vdc) or S48895 (240 Vac/24 Vdc).
  • Kit 84957 (label and components for required switches; includes the following
  • -Instruction Bulletin NHA40218
    -AMS nameplate (80298-173-01)
    -AMS dange label (NHA41456)
    -C&KJ AMS push button (KM3301RR05Q) (button used for testing)
  • Order the following parts separately:
    -RIM (S48890)
    -Switch with blue indicator light (9001K11J38LLL)
    -Switch contact block (9001KA3)
    -Padlock attachment (9001K7)
    -Remote Pilot Light (the bulletin shows 9001KP1L9 or 9001KP35L9 but they use whatever they want)
See attachment for instructions.
