Circuit Breakers

Masterpact circuit breakers are suited for use:
At ambient temperatures between -13° F (-25° C) and 158° F (70° C). Operating the breaker above 104° F (40° C) may require derating or overbussing the circuit breaker. See attachment for details.
At altitudes less than or equal to 13,000 ft. (3900 meters). At altitudes > 6600 ft. (2000 m), rerating factors apply.  See attachment for details.
It is recommended that the equipment be cooled or heated to the proper operating temperature and kept free of excessive vibration and dust, and be protected from water intrusion and condensation.
