UL, CSA and IEC Approvals may be found on page 263.
All contactors are 3-Pole and electrically held.
Mechanical latch attachments for customer assembly are available up to the 400 amp rating which will give a two coil arrangement: one coil for the contactor and one coil for the latch attachment.
The Lighting Circuit Selection Guide begins on page 173 of the below PDF file.
