No, tandem breakers are not approved for G3030B1100CU which is a 30 space 30 circuit device. Please see wiring diagram link for approved breakers. The Type QT is not listed. https://www.downloads.siemens.com/download-center/Download.aspx?pos=download&fct=getasset&id1=BTLV_23953

Will this tandem 15 breaker or any other fit into a Siemens G4040B1200 load center?

Asked by DIYer June 27, 2020
2
Answers

Q1515U will not fit G4040B1200 which is deigned for full size breakers only. The "4040" indicates 40 space 40 circuit which means no tandem breakers are approved for use.

Yes, Type QT breakers can be used in the bottom 10 spaces only of LC230PC. Your inspector may require documentation to allow Siemens-labeled breakers. Please send a request to productselection.us@siemens.com for copies of the relevant UL substitution letters.

whats the difference between 15 amp tandem CL and NCL

Asked by fff12345 May 22, 2020
2
Answers

I believe the CL type have a tab/rejection clip at the panel connection Point on the breaker only allowing it to be used in certain areas of a panel board. The N rated breaker does not have the Rejection clip On the breaker allowing this type to be used anywhere in the load center. Always make sure that when adding these breakers to your panel that your aware of the panels capacity in amperage. Too many of these breakers could cause overloading of the main service and become dangerous. Always check with a qualified electrician.

Can I use this in a G3030B1150CU load center? If not is there a tandem 15amp I can use?

Asked by Moe April 16, 2020
2
Answers

Unfortunately no, the box you have will not allow any single pole tandem breakers. You could upgrade the panel board to a 3060 or use a sub panel.

Will this work on EQC20MBB22? It states on the panel "Use only I-T-E Type EO-P and EQ-T Class CTL Circuit Breakers."

Asked by Shane September 3, 2019
1
Answer

Yes, it will. The Type QT is the successor to the EQ-T. EQC20MBB22 is a 20 space 40 circuit device so all of the stabs will be notched allowing use in any position.

Will a Siemens P1624B1100Cu panel accept tandem breakers? And if so, what slots and how many?

Asked by RW May 28, 2019

Answers

I'm sure siemens tandem breakers will work. Are you replacing single breaker with tandem or do you have extra space to add more

I have a G2424B1125 panel with QP breakers, will this panel accept a QT tandem breaker?

Asked by Tyler April 4, 2019
1
Answer

No, the "2424" in the catalog number signifies a 24 space 24 circuit load center which means only full size breakers should be used. The bus stab design does not accommodate the rejection feature of the Type QT.
