Circuiting Shunt Trip Breakers

Posted on May 15th, 2019. Last updated on June 14th, 2023.

Q: Some of the breakers in my project have shunt trips. How can I show this on my panel schedule?

A: Use the Circuiting command to create a circuit with no breaker or load that represents the shunt trip.

  1. In the Circuiting dialog box, select the next circuit down from your breaker. If the selected circuit is not a space/spare, press the Insert Circuit button to insert a space/spare and move the other loads down the panel.
  2. Set Breaker Size to None.
  3. In the Description field, enter a description for the shunt trip, such as “SHUNT TRIP”.

The shunt trip will be shown on your panel schedule.
