Has anyone seen a remote actuator (open & close) for paddle operated molded case breakers?

Yes,
I know that Squared D has motor operators for some of their breakers, so I assume other manufacturers do also.

GE sells a motor operator for their breakers as well. Are you looking for a portable device that could be mounted on a breaker as needed, or a permanently installed device? The motor operators I am aware of are meant for permanent installation.

Many of the newer styles have them available, but expensive. There are remote operators that can be moved from place to place (Using magnets) and that can be operated remote via wireless remote. Whole system for about the cost of one of theose operators.

Square D no longer makes the motorized QO breakers. The only ones available now are for their smart panels. The old ones you could put into any panel that aceepted QO. The new ones only fit the smart panel. Don't know why they dropped it as it was a great product.

I'm looking for a portable device, similar to a Chicken Switch, but strong enough to CLOSE a panel mounted 600A molded case CB.

I think that violates forum rules, but you can PM me.
