Does this interlock fit the 200 amp 40/80 circuit plugin neutral panel model #BRP40B200V25?

Is your main breaker at the top, does it trip horizontal, and is it a type CSR/BWH breaker? If so I believe it should work.

Hello JWhite, Thank you for your response. You are correct that they main breaker is a CSR type. No matter how I flipped the interlock kit around, I could not get it to line up with the four screw "detents" that Eaton provides around the main breaker, AND have it line up with where the generator breaker should go. To humor the folks that have tried to answer this question, I drove back to Home Depot this afternoon to see if they still had the Interlock Kit on their shelf, or if they had sent it back to their vendor. My hopes were that they would still have it. I was going to repurchase it, bring it home, and take photographs of it up against my panel. Unfortunately, they had already sent it back. So.....I am going to repurchase the unit online and it should be at my local store later this week. I will update this thread with what I find. In meantime, here is a photo of the lower portion of my panel.

Will this work with MBE2040B200Bs cutler hammer 200Amp panel

Asked by Danny July 13, 2019

Danny I looked at the panel you have listed and a lock out won't work on that panel, the reason why is because the lock outs kits require a branch circuit breaker to be mounted below the main which is used for back feeding the panel locks out the main breaker. You could be able to mount it on the indoor panel located in the house but you would need to bring your generator wire from outside to the panel. Also the lockout will only work if your inside panel has a main breaker. The code requires that you must be able to lock out the generator from back feeding to the power company's meter. Mike

Will this work for MBE2040B200BTSV?

Hello Bill, BRMIKCSR will not work on this meter breaker. MBDF17M is the correct interlock deadfront. Regards, Eaton.

The interlock itself is well made and a good idea that improves safety. However, I have a BR Load Center with a CSR main purchased less than a year ago. This kit does not fit my panel. The panel had the punchout for the screws, but they did not line up. Also the tab that interlocks the 30A breaker is too wide to work. I had to cut it with a hacksaw to about half the width to properly fit over the breaker and prevent it from being energized while the main is on. So in the end, it worked, but wasted an hour of my time making work.

Product literature was clear and straightforward for "normal" installations. I had to contact Eaton regarding my particular non-standard installation. After a brief discussion with Eaton representative the installation proceeded without any difficulties.

A bit on the expensive side for what it is, but made well and works well.

Does exactly what its supposed to!
If you are back feeding your panel, this is what you need! Works exactly as it should, installs easy, looks good as expected for an OEM part. It's over priced for a couple pcs of sheet metal and some knobs, but worth it for the confidence it gives.

This kit was the perfect match for my particular panel. Alignment was precise and installation was easy. It's good having peace of mind that there is no way both the main breaker, and generator breaker - could ever be in the ON position at any time. People who may be working on pole lines are guaranteed to be protected, and I have made the necessary change to know I am within code, and have followed the law. Great Product
