Product Overview

Siemens GFCI circuit breakers are UL Listed and CSA Certified as Class A devices. These circuit breakers offer the new Self-Test and Lockout feature as required by UL 943, enabling the GFCI to automatically and continuously test itself to ensure that it is working properly. If it is detected that the device has been compromised, the device trips itself and locks out the homeowner from resetting the device, reducing the possibility of the homeowner incorrectly assuming that the device was tripped to prevent a ground fault.
  • Double pole, 240-Volt, 20 Amp GFCI circuit breaker
  • 10 kA interrupting rating
  • Includes self-test as required by UL 943 as an added safety feature
  • Suitable for a variety of construction applications including spas, hot tubs, kitchens, bathrooms, etc.
  • Resists false tripping (shielded to prevent RF interference)
  • Provides Class A GFCI protection
  • White line neutral (pigtail) must be connected to the panel neutral for the device to function

Asked by BreakerList November 14, 2020

Answer

Yes. The wiring diagram lists the QPF breaker (please see link). There is a UL substitution letter authorizing installation of the QPF2. For a copy of the letter please send a request to productselection.us@siemens.com. https://www.downloads.siemens.com/download-center/Download.aspx?pos=download&fct=getasset&id1=BTLV_39476

Can I replace two single pole type QP breakers with one of these? I want to change both breakers...

Asked by Coop May 3, 2020
1
Answer

Single pole breakers are typically used for 120-volt circuits. 2 pole breakers are typically used for 240-volt circuits to supply 240v power to larger appliances like electric dryers and ranges. If you are replacing two single pole breakers, that are being used with 120-volt circuits, you should replace those existing single pole breakers with individual single pole GFCI breakers. The single pole version of the QF220AP would be QF120AP.

Is this considered a 220-240v, 15a, 50/60hz gfci breaker?

Asked by Aaron April 29, 2020
3
Answers

In as much as 220V in the US consists of 2 poles of 110V AC of opposite phase, and this is a 2 pole breaker, yes. Technically all 220V breakers in residential service in the US consist of 2 110V breakers with a common actuator, controlling opposite phases of 110V.

Will this breaker fit in a Circa 1986 100 amp 220v ITE breaker box

Asked by Don February 2, 2020
1
Answer

Approval, not just fit, would be the issue. The UL substitution letter for the Type QPF2 is contingent on Type QPF approval. If your load center label does not list the QPF then the QPF2 would not be approved. For a copy of the letter please send a request to productselection.us@siemens.com.

Is this the replacement for the Siemans GFTCB 220 double pole 20 amp

Asked by LDO November 23, 2019
1
Answer

We have no record of a designation Type GFTCB. Please submit a separate request with specific label information or send pictures of the breaker, label and panel label to productselection.us@siemens.com.

Can this be used with a 240V load that has no neutral?

Asked by Barry April 12, 2019
2
Answers

Yes, no neutral connection would be made for a 240V load. Correct, the pig tail would still be connected to the neutral bus for proper operation.

Will this breaker work with 8 Gauge wire? 6 Gauge?

Asked by Valkyrie April 4, 2019
3
Answers

Yes, QF230A accepts #6 AWG to #14 AWG wire in both copper and aluminum. See breaker label for different torque settings.

Will this fit in a Gould service panel box?

Asked by Geo October 29, 2018
1
Answer

No, these would not fit into the Gould Service panel boxes. The Gould series has been obsolete for many years now, and there are no longer replacement parts available. You would need to remove one of the existing circuit breakers from the panel, and search for similar series breaker if still available.

Will this fit in any SIEMENS panel?

Asked by ST September 27, 2018
3
Answers

Yes ,standard residential panels, but some panel have set a limited number of locations within the box for use of double pole breakers.

Visually the product is an improvement over other brands, detail in quality and finish. Otherwise, plugged it in and it works, Panel replacement was more expensive than original thought, but knowing I have the extra arc fault protection, it is worth the price. Arc fault protection would have avoided a house fire at a previous home. The Siemens hardware is wonderful to work with and I feel is well worth the minimal difference in price.. Quality remains long after the price is forgotten.

Good quality. Fit just as you would expect in the Siemens panel. Used it as extra protection for pool pumps and lights. Neutral wire off of it is not too terribly long, so you can’t put it on the middle of the opposite side of the neutral screw-in terminal block in the panel.
