Published date: 10 June 2020

Issue:
How do you wire the motor of a Powerpact P breaker?
Where is the wiring diagram of an electrically operated Powerpact P frame circuit breaker?

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:
Applies to Powerpact P Frame circuit breakers with factory installed motor operator

Resolution:
The Powerpact P Frame circuit breaker can be purchased with an internal motor operator, to allow electrical operation of the breaker from a remote location. The motor must be factory installed. 
When the breaker is ordered with the motor, it will include
  • motor
  • opening coil
  • closing coil
The desired voltage rating of the motor must be specified when ordering the breaker, and the opening and closing coils will then automatically have that same voltage rating (voltage supplied by the customer).
The breaker cover must be removed to access the wiring terminals. Electrical connections to the motor and coils are made as shown in the picture below.
In addition, the characteristics of the motor, trip coil, and close coil are shown below.
