About This Product

Circuit breakers protect the wires in your home from overheating (referred to as an overload) and fault currents (referred to as short circuits). The Eaton Cutler-Hammer 30/30 Amp 1 in. Duplex Type BD Circuit Breaker is also known as tandem or circuit limiting breaker. This style of breaker will only fit into load center bus stabs that are notched to accommodate the rejection clip built into the bus bar contact on the breaker. This is a code requirement that limits the number of breakers that can be installed into a load center.

  • Amperage - (2) 30 Amp
  • Duplex 1 in. wide breaker
  • Trips to center position - must turn off then turn back on
  • For use in type BR load centers

  • Voltage rating is 120
  • Wire size - #14-4 AWG Cu/Al at 60°C or 75°C

Q:Will i get 220 volt out of this 30 A Breaker if i plug a wire on each of them ?

Answer This Question

A:  Hello, The BD3030 is only rated for 120V. You will not be able to get 220V out of this breaker. The BD3030 is a duplex breaker that contains two different circuits but the breaker only plugs onto a single stab of the loadcenter bus; hence the 120V rating. Regards, Eaton

    Q:Is this breaker compatible with 10-gauge wire? I'm running a new 220V 30A circuit, which I understand required 10-gauge wire. Confused by mention of "Wire size - #14 - 4 AWG" in the description above. Thanks!

    A:  Hello Wfoley3, The statement #14-4 AWG means that part is suitable for landing wires from 14AWG to 4AWG. 10AWG can also be placed in the same, not sure what you are referring to call it with 10gauge is it 10AWG or you are referring to American Wire Gauge? Regards, Eaton

    by|Mar 26, 2020

      A:  10 gauge wire carries current up to 30 amps - so this breaker should be compatible - but you need two of them for 230 volt operation

      by|Mar 26, 2020

        A:  You cannot get 240 volts from a tandem breaker. All you will get is two 120 volt circuits from a single pole tandem breaker. You need a 2-pole breaker for a 240 volt circuit.

        Q:I have a westinghouse-Bryant breaker box in my home. Will the Eaton modle BD3030 breaker fit in my breaker box?

        Answer This Question

        A:  It might fit your older panel if you have the notched bus. Check the label inside the panel door to see if Bryant BD breakers are approved, if so this will fit.

        by|Mar 26, 2020

        A:  It should fit. Buy it and try it. It can always be returned.

        Q:I was wondering if this would replace a 2 pole breaker for use on a water heater?

        Answer This Question

        A:  No, for 240 volts you need a 2-pole breaker and a tandem is a two single pole breakers in one case.

        by|Mar 26, 2020

        A:  No. This breaker does not provide 220V.
