Questions & Answers

Will a Siemens 70 amp double pole type qp accept 6 ga. Stranded wire.

Asked by: sparkyy
In the specifications listed below the price, it shows "Accepts #8-#2/0 AWG Cu or or #8-#2/0 AWG Al Wire". So, it looks to me like 6 ga. wire falls in that range. I have one of these breakers and it really does look like it could take up to a 2/0 wire.

Can the Siemens 70-Amp Double Pole Type QP circuit breaker be used as a Main Breaker?

Asked by: mikefl
Hi mikefl, This circuit breaker can be used as a main breaker to a subpanel downstream as long as the panel is rated for 70 Amps. It depends on the application you are using the breaker for. I would recommend contacting a professional electrician.
