Answer: 
Wire size is always based on ampacity, or amperage draw/ current. Check the placard on the unit, consult NEC wire sizing chart, and choose the proper wire size/ gauge. Using a larger wire never hurts. The Circuit Breaker and/ or Fused Disconnect is to protect the wiring and equipment.

Answer: 
That will depend on the unit. The unit's data label will tell you the minimum circuit ampacity. Use this number, along with the National Electrical Code and your local codes to determine the wire size.

I want to run 8/2 UF gauge wire w• ground from my main breaker panel @ my house on a 30 amp single pole breaker to my storage building which is about 200 feet. Can I use this as a emergency quick disconnect since access to the MAIN BREAKER is so far.

Answer: 
Yes the box is rated for outdoor use and at 60 amps which is well within your 30 amp requirement. Make sure you have easy access to the cover and the inside if it is an emergency disconnect.

Answer: 
Yes, you can. You may encounter voltage drop issues, depending on what you plant to use on the circuit. You also have to de-rate the wire if direct-buried. If you just plan to power a couple of fluorescent lights and a small fan, you will be fine.

Answer: 
Yes, this setup will work. However, as long as you're going to the expense and work of burying a cable, why not make the cable a 6/3 UF? This will give you greater future flexibility in electrical capabilities in your storage building and it sure beats having to replace the cable when your electrical needs in the building change, I know that if I install 120 volts, before too long I'll find myself Read More

Answer: 
This is not a fuse or breaker unit. You will still need a fuse or breaker in the circuit somewhere. It will work as a local disconnect.

Answer: 
Yes. As long as your water heater doesn't pull more than 60 amps. The disconnect could be used for any piece of 240 Volt equipment. A disconnect is primarily for maintenance.

Answer: 
Although designed with AC units in mind, this disconnect will work with any single phase, 240 VAC electrical equipment with a maximum draw of 60 amps. This disconnect cannot be used for any equipment that requires but does not already have fuses/circuit breakers. Your application will be OK since the water heater is already wired through a circuit breaker box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal A great product at a great price. I just can't figure out why they sent 8 in one box, and 2 in another the next day. Seems to me it would have been cheaper to send them all in one box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GE 60 amp non fusible disconnect- outdoor. I replaced my outside disconnect with the unit. Very simple and safe design. For the price, I should buy a spare to put on the shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly built AC Disconnect I use AC Disconnects for my work. This is the only brand that is built solidly. Home Depot is the only store I have been able to find them at. Menards & Lowes only sell a very flimsy cheaper made product, that I have had to use in a pinch. The plastic on the cheap ones break. I strongly recommend this product!
