Customer Questions & Answers

can a 200 amp breaker be field installed where the feed thru lugs are depicted in the illustration? i would like to feed a generator transfer switch .

Asked by: mick
If you have and automatic generator transfer switch box you could hook up in there and have that breaker for extra protection and easy install, but transfer switch should have it's own outgoing breaker. This 400 amp meter box is made so you can have a full 200amps running to the home and a full 200amps running to the shop, where I would and have hook up my generator in the shop running threw my welder 50amp outlet and breaker. When my power goes out I turn off my 200amp main on my mobile home outside meter box, I go in the house and turn off all the breakers, then I go to the shop and turn off all the breakers. then I take the 5500 watt generator out side and hook up to the welder spot with breaker off. When generator is running and warmed up and stable I turn on the 200 amp breaker in the shop, then the 50 amp welder breaker, then I go in the house and turn on the breaker for the lights I need to see and the refrigerator. I try to run the minimum. I run my well also, but I can't run the hot water heater at the same time the well is cycling, so I have to turn off the well if I want to heat up the water. Once the water is warm I turn off the hot water heater breaker and then turn the well back on. To make a long story short I don't have an automatic transfer switch. Maybe after I get this 400 amp box installed I'll work on getting a big Generac and an automatic transfer switch. I hope this helps someone, DM

What is the largest breaker that can be put in this cabinet?

I need to run a 100 Amp service to a garage and a 250 - 300 Amp service to the main house. If I put a 100 Amp in one of the locations, can I also install a 300 Amp breaker in the other spot?
Asked by: Jimmy
In my opinion and from my experience I would not exceed 200 amps in each spot or less because any more can and will eventually meld down the breaker flanges and can cause a fire. The flanges for the top breaker where electricity goes into the breaker and the flanges that are on the bus bars on the bottom breaker are only made to handle what it's rated for. I've melted bus bars down and fried breakers myself and nearly had a fire. Be safe! I hope this helps someone, DM

Which breaker should be bought for the secondary one? The QN2200R, QN2200 or the QN2200H?

I think the QN220R would be the one because the wire needs to connect to the right side and go down. Can someone tell me for sure? Thanks
Asked by: John
I would use the QN2200 or the qn2200h because it keeps the on/ off switch the same direction as the QN2200r below it, while the wire lugs in the breaker are aimed to the right side , not getting in the way of the 4 incoming wires. Although I believe the QN2200r would go in as well with the wire lugs aiming to the right but the on/off switch would be opposite of the breaker below it. It looks like if you had to you could put thQN2200r in the other direction and the switch would be the same as the on below it, but the wire lugs would be aimed to the left, crowding the incoming wire. You would end up with 6 wires running down the left side, which might not be to code because they'd be running down with the incoming wires. If you look close you can see the flanges for the upper breaker are right in the middle, and it has 4 catch tabs,2 on each end, but it looks like to me that from the factory the tabs on the left are bent down in out of the way where the tabs on the right are up and ready for any of the 3 breakers to go in aiming all 3 breakers with wire lugs to the right side. It's just easier. I also noticed that it has the breaker mounting screw hole in between the 2 tabs on both sides, like you could put it in with wire lugs to the left side as long as the 2 tabs on the left were bent upward, ready to use, and the tabs on the right were bent down out of the way and that way when you use the mounting screw on the right the breaker will draw down flat like it would if you put it in the other direction. I hope you can see what I'm talking, I hope this helps, DM

Would this be suitable to run to dual 200 amp breaker panels? And if so what gauge wire would be need to run to each panel?

I have built a steel building I am using for a race shop. I am going to add a 400 amp service to the building(it currently has none). I don't need the full 400 amp now, 200 would do for now, but may need it in the future. There will be several items(air compressor, welder,...) that require 30-50 amp breakers but most will not be running concurrently. Would this panel service my needs and still allow for future expansion as well?
Asked by: mri25
You need to consult an Ampacity chart: Standard THHN Copper stranded wire would require 3 aught gage to service 200A. It's not uncommon to use 4 aught aluminum for the same purpose.
