Why does Eaton make CH & BR Panels when BR is supposedly not as good?

Why make BR with a tin bus bar when a copper bus bar is indisputably better? Also do you make anything a 36 space panel?
Asked by: ElectricPro
Eaton/Cutler-Hammer makes two series loadcenters, the classic CH series and the newer BR series. The CH series features silver plated copper bus while the BR series comes standard with tin plated aluminum bus, but has an upgrade option of copper bus in the popular panels. The classic CH series loadcenters and breakers carry a lifetime warranty while the BR series is manufactured to be competitive with other aluminum bus panels in the residential market such as the Square D Homeline, Siemens and Murray tin plated aluminum bus panels. All of these more competitive loadcenters are designed for the residential market and carry a 10 year warranty. If you want the highest quality you'll spend a few dollars more for the classic silver plated copper bus with a lifetime warranty. Loadcenters are available with up to 40 space and 80 circuits, but to the best of my knowledge no one makes a 36 space panel. No one makes a tin bus panel.

Customer Reviews

200-Amp 42-Space Type CH Main Breaker Load Center Value Pack Includes 6 Breakers is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best residential pannels you can buy. Easy to install with plenty of knockouts, has higher interrupting current capacity than many competitors, a silver plated copper bus vs aluminum, made in USA and switch duty rated breakers. These things just last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and quality The product is very well built. I liked that it has a copper bus bar. The grounding bar is separate from the neutral, so it makes the installation very clean. The CH breakers are easy to find and have ON/OFF written on them, which helps in the event of a trip. Installation was easy, but I had to cut a knockout in back to make it fit on the existing service connection. The knockouts provided in the top of the panel were plentiful enough for all 27 of my circuits and then some. The panel has a great warranty, but it's built so well that I doubt it will ever be needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price on a great Load center! I researched a LOT of load centers looking for the best possible one to buy based on safety, quality, and performance. Customer reviews as well as testimonials from electricians sold me on the CH type by Cutler Hammer. This Cutler Hammer CH type appeared to be the number one choice for a lot of good reasons. Then I found it at the Home Depot Website for an incredible price! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything that I could need for now and the future. Product has a ton of space with 42 spaces. It is a big box so make sure you measure your space before you buy. I bought the CH style so all my existing breaker would fit in this new box.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eaton 200 Amp Subpar Although I purchased this panel I had to return it. I was a nice panel but after realizing that I had 15 GFI breakers it was going to cost me an arm and a leg. In the end I went with a panel that the breakers were almost half the cost.
