Questions & Answers

How many breaker positions does this unit take up?

Asked by: Jeff
It "replaces" two breakers. Plus, it is NOT 6" wide as in many descriptions. It's 4", same size as two breakers. This replaces two 20A breakers, and each breaker is it's own circuit. So you need two separate breakers that are 20A each next to one another. They do make a 15A version. Plus, very important, the ground connection is only 8" long and must connect directly to the neutral bar. My 100A box only had one neutral bar on the right side, so I could not place it were I was hoping. It should be placed nearest the main breaker, according to research. It is a double to protect both 120V lines coming in. This cannot replace a 20A double breaker (with a bar), each breaker controls only one circuit. So it's an easy replacement. Loosen the connector screw, they are very tight out of the package. Took all of 15 min to someone that has done wiring and circuit installation.

Whole house, or individual ciruit?

One of the answers here makes this a bit confusing. Is this a whole house solution, or does it only protect the two individual circuits? "Hi JackOfAllTrades, This surge breaker is intended to surge protect two individual 120 Volt circuits. There is not an option to tie the handle together and service a 240 Volt circuit."

Everything on the panel it is connected to.

will this fit in a Cutler-Hammer panel?

Asked by: finnroiger
No, this unit is not U.L.Listed for use in a Cutler-Hammer panel. To install it in a Cutler-Hammer panel would be a code violation.

Does Siemens make a 15 amp surge protector? Why is this surge protector better than just a breaker?

Asked by: bubba
Because its a breaker ( actually 2) AND provides surge protection for everything on the box, not just the 2 circuits its attached to. I am sure there are more expensive ways to obtain whole house surge protection, with more sophisticated units, but for under $100.00 this seems good to me. I am also keeping individual electronis items protected with individual surge protection. Thus I have 2 stage surge protection.

It is a cute trick to combine a surge protector and two 20A (they do make a 15A) breakers in one. My small 100A service panel only had one neutral bar. So the location as one of the first breakers from the main breaker (as suggested by many sites) I could not do without moving my dryer breaker. So it's the second set on the panel. Very easy install, just remember to undo the screws before you put it in a they are gorilla tight. This took all of 15 min., but ALL house power has to go off to install any breaker. I have added breakers and wired a complete addition to my house (that passed inspection the first time) so I know what I'm doing. It is not that hard to install, having someone knowledgeable there to assist (and for safety) is a very good thing. It's not the 80s anymore. Every large electrical item anymore has a $300+ control panel. I added this whole house surge protector after replacing my double oven, even my highly discounted unit was $900, my new frig of $2300, recent $1500 for washer and dryer. Each with a control panel this breaker will protect. You can still add a UPS/Surge to computers and TVs. This does not protect again voltage fluctuations, brownouts or blackouts like a UPS can. It will protect against surges from lights flickering (wires were shorted a mile from our house) and line transformer problems in your other products using power this item is protecting.

This one is especially nice because you don't lose 2 spots in your panel because it is both a breaker and surge protection.

My product arrived by UPS an hour ago, and its installed and fuctional already, and that includes opening the box, and the plastic hardpack case the surge protector was packaged in. I cant comment on functionality, but i will assume it will do what it is suppose to do. I can only comment on installation, which was simple. One cavet- You will need to have some basic understanding of electricity and some basic mechanical common sense. After all you will be accessing the inside of your electrical panel. If that scares you, hire someone or find a friend with the capability. I was a little worried that the size of this unit was going to be larger than the combined size of the 2 breakers it will replace ( and hence be a problem fitting it on the bus, and then replacing the panel. And I would say it is "a tad" larger BUT it did not inhibit installation at all. Being a brand new unit, it took a bit of "gentle force" to get the 2 sets of black side contacts to slip over the power side bus bar, and in fact I had to pull back the 2 single 15 A breakers on its opposite side to seat the new surge / breaker. Then I snapped back in the two 15 breakers. The panel cover fit right back on without any problem. One very nice thing about this is that not only does it add whole house surge protection, it also replaces 2 adjacent breakers. My breaker box was full and I had no room for any additional breakers, but you do not need extra room. I thought i was going to need to buy a few 1/2 wide breakers to replace full width breakers in order to make room for this. I saved a lot of $ not having to do that, AND I now have two, 20 A "back up" breakers if I ever need them (great, where do i put them in a small condo with limited storage for "garage type" items!). Note: breaker boxes are unique to the manufacturer. This unit is for a Siemens box. It will not fit a GE style box, etc. I think it does overlap a few styles but make sure to check before you buy. Otherwise it will be like buying a part for a Ford and try to install it on a Chevy. And its more than just a physical fit issue. It also has to do with how the different manufactures connect the breaker electrically to the panel. Imagine trying to plug in your US style hair drier in an outlet in Germany!
