What is a NCL breaker?

NCL or Non-CTL breakers are made for replacement use in pre 1965 panels. A tandem breaker, for example, squeezes two breakers into a single breaker slot on the panel. This QT Seimens breaker is a non-CTL double, or tandem, circuit breaker. NCL or Non-CTL breakers are made for replacement use in pre 1965 panels.

Are QT and QP breakers interchangeable?

The Siemens QP, QT, QAF, and QPF are the standard “interchangeable” plug-on type breakers used in loadcenters under several brand names including Siemens, Murray, Gould, and Sylvania to name the most common.

What is a QP type circuit breaker?

QP breakers are manufactured by Siemens, and are designed to fit in Siemens breaker panels. These breakers are designed to snap into a panel, so the hardware needed in the electrical panel needs to allow for snap-in breakers, rather than the style of breakers that bolt in using an external screw.

What is a breaker rejection tab?

what and where is the rejection tab? It blocks half of the clamping slot in the back of the breaker so it will only fit in the sections of buss with the notches in it. In a 16/24 panel for instance they will only fit in the bottom 4 spaces in the panel.

What is the difference between CL and NCL breaker?

Registered. CL or CTL panels and breakers have been required since 1965. They have rejection clips to prevent tandems or quads from being installed in some panels, or in some spaces within some panels. NCL or Non CTL breakers are made for replacement use in pre 1965 panels.

What is CTL panel?

Circuit total limitation (CTL) is one of the present-day standards for electrical panels sold in the United States according to the National Electrical Code. This standard requires an electrical panel to provide a physical mechanism to prevent installing more circuit breakers than it was designed for.

What breakers are compatible with Square D?

Square D QO breakers are compatible with QO breaker boxes and CSEDs. Each ANSI-certified and UL-listed. Homeline circuit breakers are built with the same Square D brand quality you have come to expect at a price that makes them the best value in their class.

What is a BR style breaker?

BR breakers are 1″ in Width. BR breakers are black, with black handles (In most cases. Some older styles have multicolored handles.) BR breakers carry a 10 Year Warranty.

What is a CTL circuit breaker?

What is a rejection clip?

The rejection tabes are in place to prevent you from putting those breakers into a “non-CTL” panelboard. Doing so can/would exceed the maximum number of circuits or poles a panel is designed to accept.

What is the 6 throw rule?

The “six breaker throw rule” is a requirement in the National Electrical Code [NEC 230.71(A)]) that a service must have have a main disconnect that shuts off all power and it cannot take more than six switch throws to do it. The main disconnect or disconnects also must be clearly marked, as in the photo above.

What are the different realtime ratings for iTEQ?

The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for ITEQ on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.

What are the dimensions of a Siemens q2020?

Dimensions: 2.5″ H x 1″ W x 3.06″ L. Siemens space saving, plug in circuit breakers are intended for use in Siemens EQ, Siemens Ultimate, ITE, and Gould load centers and meter combinations that are rated to accept type QT breakers. Check wiring diagram to confirm.

Where do I place the qt2020 circuit breaker?

The QT2020 breaker is a CTL (Circuit Total Limitation) style breaker and can only be installed in certain locations within the breaker panel – usually the lower 4 slots within the cabinet. The buss bar in those lower locations is notched to accept the CTL style breaker (and the standard breaker).
