Answer: 
Hi Chuck,
Talon does not have a line of breakers, however Talon is owned by Siemens so you would want to use Siemens type QP circuit breakers in your talon metering equipment.

Answer: 
Hi Skatebass1958,
The "U" is simply a indicator for sale through the retail channel. The Q230 circuit breaker itself will be no different with or without a "U" on the end. As long as you have a Siemens panel then you will have no issue using this breaker.

Answer: 
Hi Squeaky,
I cannot confirm that you can use Siemens breakers in replacement of a stab-lock federal pacific. Your best bet would be to find a replacement Federal Pacific breaker or replace the panel.

Answer: 
Hi BagleBoy,
Yes, this two pole breaker can be used to backfeed a panel with a generator as long as the interlock kit is installed. The installation manual for the generator should have the required amperage circuit breaker listed so you may want to double check that.
