What is the difference between a Retrofill and/or Retrofit?

The Difference between a RETROFIT and a RETROFILL has to do with how the new components are installed.


A RETROFIT is a means where the new components are introduced without old components modification. An example of this would be removing an old circuit breaker from a cubical and being able to directly install a new RETROFIT circuit breaker without any cubical modifications. 


Whereas, a RETROFILL is when both new and old components must be modified to work together. For example, a RETROFILL circuit breaker would require a technician modifying/installing a new cubical in order to install a new circuit breaker.
