Customer Questions & Answers

Can I temporarily install a 150 amp main breaker in this panel

I am planning on upgrading my main service entrance to 200 amps in the spring, but would like to get the panel installed and complete all of the interior wiring now. My current service is 150 amp. Is it possible to temporarily swap out the included 200amp main breaker to a 150 amp, and then just switch mains back to the 200 amp once the service entrance wiring is upgraded?
Asked by: anomalyjustin
Yes you can use a 150 main breaker for that purpose which is correct if your incoming feed is only rated at 150a , although I would expect that your entire house load with everything on would be anywhere near that unless you're all electric and have big appliance draws etc U could easily verify what your full load is with an amp probe on the main feeds

Does the panel support the Tandem breakers 20Amp?

Does the Siemens PL support the mini circuit breakers (Tandem) that take 1 space and allows for 2 independent circuits?
Asked by: GeorgeM
Yes the QT style will fit on this panel.

Main Breaker for this panel

I saw that you specified an MBK200A breaker, but the front panel on the load center only has a square knockout, slightly offset to the right and it is labeled MAIN. Obviously the MBK200A will not fit this front panel. This is the load center I purchased. Is there another breaker for this panel. It will be for this panel only, which is being wired as a sub panel, downstream from the main disconnect.
Asked by: NCCLT
This panel comes with the MBK200A breaker, as the only portion that is seen through the front cover is the area immediately around the switch. Also if you are using this as a subpanel why use this load center and not a MLO? unless you are required to do so by your AHJ.

Can this box be installed sideways

Asked by: jim
Hi jim, There are some NEC issues that you could run into if installing a panel horizontally. It can be done in some scenarios, but my recommendation to you would be to consult a professional electrician or an associate in the electrical department at your local Home Depot to make sure your install meets all NEC code requirements.

PL Series 200 Amp 40-Space 40-Circuit Main Breaker Indoor Load Center is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.

In this case I needed and bought the Breaker Load Center configuration. This comes with the 200A main breaker (as opposed to input power lugs for a Main Lug configuration), a ground to neutral jumper and a ground to case bonding screw in case any or all of those are needed. The only problem I have had was the result of HD shipping me the unit in its original carton without any extra protection. I dont think the carton is designed for individual shipping as it was dropped on a corner and both the steel enclosure and cover were bent up pretty well as a result. Two of the spot welds on that corner of the steel enclosure were broken. Nothing else was damaged. Once I bent things straight again I added 2 1/4" SS blind rivets to replace the broken spot welds.

Nice product, however the finish is slightly more teal than the photos suggest, which is disappointing. It also appeared that the package had been shipped twice and opened before because the box was a little beat up on arrival.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality and was a good fit (literally) for my project The quality seems excellent and installation presented no problems. Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase. I was replacing an old ITE panel which had the service connections much higher up in the panel than the newer panels do. The guys at a local electric supply shop said this is typical and I was out of luck for an exact replacement. This Siemens panel was close enough that I could connect the old service wires. Thankfully the wires entered the house a few inches to the left of the old box which they had stuck into a corner and I got enough slack (barely) to reach the new box by moving the mount location to the left towards the wire entrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximum Capacity 200A Load Center - High Quality Construction. I recently purchased a forclosure home, which had been built in the late 70's. As such, it was equipped with an old school Murray 200A split load center which had been loaded to the MAX, and had no room for any of my planned electrical updates and additions. Considering the type of breakers that were in the old Murray breaker box (mostly Type Q circuit breakers), I shopped around and identified the Seimens P4040B1200CU 200 Amp 40-Space 40-Circuit Indoor Main Breaker Load Center as the unit of choice for my home's electrical upgrade that I wanted to do. The first thing I did was to go to my local permiting office (City Hall), and obtained an electrical permit so that I could change out the Electrical Panel. Then I visited my local Home Depot store, and purchased one of these ( P4040B1200CU ). It turned out to be a unit of high qualtiy materials.and construction. I planned to do the work on a Friday, so a couple of days earlier, I scheduled an electrical inspection of the completed work for late Friday afternoon. I also called my utility company to inform them of my plans to perform this type of work on that day. With everything in place, on Friday morning contacted my local utility, and informed them that I was going to pull the Meter for a period of 8 hours. With the meter out, I proceeded to remove the old Murray electrical panel, and replaced it with this new one, I carefully and cleanly routed all wires into the new box, and connected them to the old circuit breakers that I moved from the old box to this new one. I double checked all my work, and once satisfied that all was correct, I re-connected the electrical meter. I then electrically tested each of the circuits. At the same time, I labled each and everyone of the circuit breakers. An hour later, the inspector showed up as scheduled. He checked everything out, and approved the whole thing... I asked a bunch of questions, and he seemed quite pleased that I had undertaken to update the load center... He then left a label on the meter. With that label in place, I then called the Utility, who later (the next week) came by and re-sealed the meter. That's it.. the house now has a new updated / modern load center, and the whole job cost me $240.00 all together (permit and new load center). I now have ample room to add new circuits to the house, and as a bonus, this load center is "Generator Ready", This upgrade will be a PLUS in the future if / when we try to sell the house. During the installation, I had ZERO issues with the panel, it's construction, or the quality of the components used to make it. It did accept ALL of my old circuit breakers. Note: I am not an electrician, but the Home Owner.

Good value product, BUT, this model WILL NOT ACCEPT TANDEM BREAKERS (i.e. the space-saving 2 in 1 breakers that take up 50% of the space). That is a terrible design feature. All modern panels should be able to accept tandems, subject to the space and # of circuit limits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy panel. They said the ground bar is factory installed, which is true, but they don't provide a larger lug to accept a larger feeder wire grounding conductor
