Abstract

Circuit-breaker come with either a front connect or a rear connect point. Depending on which circuit-breaker will be installed at an installation, the rack mount and wiring is designed accordingly. This might cause problems to customers at one point or the other due to fact that the connection points are provided either in the front or the rear of the circuit-breakers. The customers may not have the flexibility to choose a circuit-breaker and may have to either buy circuit-breakers which fit the wiring design. From a utility perspective, there are connection plates or connection kits which may be used along with either the front or rear connection point circuit-breakers. However the invention eliminates the need for additional parts. The invention provides a connection point agnostic way of installing a circuit-breaker.
