Airpax has made and makes many breakers with the same current and speed 
characteristics. I think the 51 in that part refers to a pure magnetic 
breaker with no intended (hydraulic) delay. 20.0 refers to the current, 
the rest of the part number refer to package, mounting, presence or 
absence of auxiliary (indicating) contacts. style of operator, and 
color. Also it should be rated for DC 24 volts or less. So voltage, 
current and fast speed are the critical items. Last I looked Airpax's 
catalog was available on line and there have been vendors of Airpax 
parts, some will sell in single units. I don't have that catalog 
memorized anymore.
