Are early break auxiliary contact kits available for Series C and Series G MCCB handle mechanism kits?

The only Eaton MCCB handle mechanism kits that have auxiliary switch capability are the Series C Rotary (metal) handle kits and the EG, JG, & LG Flex shaft handle mechanism kits.  These 1A-1B type auxiliary switches activate or cut out before the breaker mechanism opens the movable power pole contacts, which is defined as 'early break' operation for he auxiliary switch.  These auxiliary switch kits were originally set up for a customer using a variable frequency drive, where the need was for control power to be removed from the drive controller before breaker power pole contacts would open.

Series G, JG-frame flex shaft handle mechanism kit auxiliary contact: AUX1EBFSJG.
