Answer: 
It doesn't....Elementary my dear Tesla, and for the record, 1HP = 746 Watts
For single phase load, simply multiply Voltage by Amperage=Watts.
And the guy above is correct on inductive loads, inrush typically about 7 cycles, no go unless slow blow fusing.

Answer: 
The 240 Watts appears to be a mistake. Probably a mix-up with the Max Voltage of 240V. With an inductive load like a motor the maximum load for this device is stated to be 3-HP. A quick look at a 3-HP 115V / 230V motor shows Full Load Amps at 30A / 15A respectively. This works out to 3,450 watts. Note running amps will be lower than this. You have to oversize to allow for the Max inrush current during Read More
The 240 Watts appears to be a mistake. Probably a mix-up with the Max Voltage of 240V. With an inductive load like a motor the maximum load for this device is stated to be 3-HP. A quick look at a 3-HP 115V / 230V motor shows Full Load Amps at 30A / 15A respectively. This works out to 3,450 watts. Note running amps will be lower than this. You have to oversize to allow for the Max inrush current during start-up until the motor attains it's designed running speed. Going from 0-RPM to Running RPM you can see up to a 300% increase in amperage over the designed running amps. If you had strictly a restive load like a heating element or incandescent lights you could multiply the amps & volts to get your watts. With restive loads you do not see much if any inrush current. Electricity is wonderful stuff but it can kill. So if you have a doubt about what you're doing find a qualified electrician to assist you in exchange for food, drink, or cash. Read Less

Answer: 
I understand what is current in amps and watts which is also it's carrying capacity. So why state it's current capacity is 30 amps and then state it's capacity is 240 watts or which equals to only a few amps at best !! 30 amps would be around 3000 watts not 240 watts.

30 amps is the rate of current of electricity. 240 watts is the amount of consumption of electricity.

Answer: 
The two fuses are sold separately - they could be 20 or 30 Amps and are sold two to a package.
Pick the right amperage for your A/C unit as shown on your A/C's spec label on the unit itself.
These fuses are snapped into the fuse cribs on the pullout.

What is the difference in 1 phase and 2 phase disconnects?

I am going to install a mini split diy air conditioner & heat pump that runs on 240 volts and requires 30 amps. Will this 1 phase disconnect work with my setup? It will be hooked into the panel to a 30 amp fuse if this helps to determine the answer.

Thanks in advance!

Answer: 
Do not confuse "phase" with "poles". 99% of residential service is single phase 2 pole, 240V line to line, or 120V line to neutral.
You need a 2-pole service disconnect, just like this one, to disconnect each pole of the 240V line. In fact, you may not even need the fused version disconnect if your HVAC unit is rated for the maximum circuit capacity or greater than the breaker you are using. Where Read More
Do not confuse "phase" with "poles". 99% of residential service is single phase 2 pole, 240V line to line, or 120V line to neutral.
You need a 2-pole service disconnect, just like this one, to disconnect each pole of the 240V line. In fact, you may not even need the fused version disconnect if your HVAC unit is rated for the maximum circuit capacity or greater than the breaker you are using. Where you would need a fused version is where you are installing a smaller capacity split unit rated for, say, 15 amp maximum on an existing 25 or 30 amp breaker used for another existing HVAC unit. It's not that the units are going to take that much current, it's about the gauge of the wiring and heft of the controls they use inside the unit - so in case of a failure in the box, it won't fry the wiring and be a fire hazard, it will just knock out the breaker no sweat.
Mini split units are awesome, quiet, and super efficient. Look at alpine home air.
Where 'phase' comes into play is for industrial and power distribution applications. Many industrial motors are 3-phase, requiring a 3-pole disconnect - nothing you'd see in normal home application.
Good luck with your installation!!! Read Less

Answer: 
Single phase is used in resedential applications referred to as 110 or 120 where 2 phase is referred to as 220 or 240. The single breakers are 1 phase and the double breakers are 2 phase

As long as the fuses you use for this disconnect as well as dryer, and the wire feeding it doesn't exceed 30 amps, then it can be used.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fuses for unit All the other review were very helpful stating it requires 2 fuses. However, product description nor anyone's reviews have stated a part number for which type fuses to use. Are they, time delay (BP/FNM-30) or heavy duty (BP-FRN-R-30) or general purpose (BP-NON-30). This information would be helpful when purchasing unit. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Disconnect If you people can't figure out that this disconnect has to have fuses installed in it, you have no business messin with electricity. May 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent A/C Fused Disconnect Excellent quality and materials as expected from General Electric. Easy installation, good instructions that any person who knows how to read can follow. You'd have to be an idiot not to notice that it requires fuses - either two 20 or two 30 AMP fuses that will permit your A/C to be protected and when the pullout is removed - to be worked on safely. The two fuses required are snapped into their respective positions on the pullout that also serves to break the circuit. Note of Caution -The actual amperage required for your particular A/C unit is shown on your unit's spec label so don't buy the wrong amperage fuses. January 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disconnect left us disconnected Our electrician came by to replace our previous disconnect with this model. He replaced the box and the wires for the load out. We got power in from the circuit breaker line, no power out from the load. We tried again. He bought another new one, and...same result. No power out from the load. We're not sure why it's the case, but from a layman's perspective, there doesn't seem to be a connection between the line and the load when you push the switch in. We couldn't get any power to the load out with this thing. Luckily, our circuit breaker is close to the appliance so it's not an absolute necessity to have the disconnect. I do not recommend this product. October 24, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS!!! I'm a professional Electrician and have installed at least 100 of these disconnects. The negative reviews are comical. Of course there's not going to be power coming from this disconnect once it's installed. IT'S A FUSED DISCONNECT!!! The fuses have to be purchased separately as stated on the manufacturer's packaging. I especially enjoyed the review stating that a PRO electrician installed this product and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work. A professional would have been able to easily identify the issue. User error and idiocy are not reasons to leave a negative review. November 15, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No power I bought this disconnect as part of an air conditioner installation. After hours of installing everything I flipped the breaker and... NO POWER. I tested everything and found that this unit was receiving line power in but would not feed load power out with the puller installed. What a huge disappointment after a lot of work - all because of this defective unit. Buy another brand if you want reliable power. March 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a Fused Disconnect This unit requires 2 fuses which are installed on the back side of the puller. If you want a non fused unit look for TFN60RCP. This unit does not require fuses and is good up to 60 Amps. The instruction sheet does say under the header "Fusible Puller Type" "Install appropriate fuses in fuse puller per information required on the air conditioner protective panel". Sorry for any confusion on this. GE April 9, 2012
