PowerPact B-frame Clearances, UL Standard

For all types of PowerPact B-frame circuit breakers that use uninsulated power connections (for example, busbars, spreaders, or uninsulated compression lugs), the minimum clearance distance between the enclosure backplate (grounded metal) and uninsulated power connections is shown below.

When using uninsulated connectors be sure to maintain the proper clearance between live parts and the grounded metallic back pan or use the insulation screen.
