Product Overview

Siemens offers a wide array of thermal-magnetic circuit breakers that are the key element for overload and short-circuit protection of your home's electrical system. To provide additional protection Siemens offers circuit breakers to protect against severe electrical shock or electrocution, mitigate the risk of electrical fires and protect against damaging surges and Voltage spikes. Circuit breakers are intended for switching and protection of your home's wiring from high temperatures caused by excess current higher than the rating of the wire. While thermal-magnetic circuit breakers are the key element for overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system, there are potentially dangerous conditions that do not involve over current.

  • 10,000 AIC interrupting rating
  • Siemens type QP circuit breakers provide easy plug-in connections in Siemens enclosures and the time saving insta-wire feature

Siemens Type QPF is a double pole GFCI Breaker. Siemens QP is a double pole breaker. You need the GFCI protection for personnel on your pool filter pump

Description says "Accepts #14-6 AWG Cu or #14-6 AWG Al wire" Will it also accept 12-3 wire?

For a hot water heater do you use 30 or 40amp

Asked by Bama July 20, 2018
5
Answers

It depends on the rating of the hot water heater. 30A is adequate up to about 6600W. 40A is good up to 8800W. It also depends on your wiring. Don't use a 40A breaker if your wiring can't handle that much current. You can search for "current by wire gauge" to find out how much current your wires can handle. Most water heaters have two heating elements but only one is on at a time. Check your water heater specifications.

No, the QO Breaker is for the Square D QO panel. You need ITE breakers for Siemans.

They may physically fit but I would replace only with Federal Pacific (FP) or the Connecticut Electric due to liability concerns both are U.L. listed for FP panels . Lowes can order the Connecticut and Home Depot can order the FP. FP has a bad history and should you have a fire related to the panel there is the possibility that your fire insurance could decline coverage due to the breaker not being UL listed for the FP panel.

What does QP mean?

Asked by Cottage November 21, 2018

Answers

"QP" is just the designation of breaker type. It has no specific meaning. ITE previously manufactured the Type EQ-P breaker. The "E" was dropped in the late 1970's when series ratings were introduced.

We cannot assist with sizing your breakers to load of equipment as this would need to be addressed by a licensed electrician. As long as the continuous load of the heater does not exceed 24amps, a 30a breaker would be acceptable. The breaker will accommodate a 10-2 wire. wire ranges for this breaker are (1)#14-#6 AWG CU/AL.

#6 copper is the minimum according to code, but you could fit larger conductors in the terminals

Perfect fit. We moved a mobile home office to a different location, inside our plant area. At the old location the power supply for the A/C condenser unit was on the power pole for the mobile home. The new location required us to run a 460 v. 3 phase power to the side of the mobile home to a step down 240v/120v. transformer, then wire the power supply to the breaker box in the mobile home. We had to match the breakers in the Siemens box with a Siemens breaker. Easy installation and working well.

Response from SIEMENS Product ExpertJuly 13, 2018
Hello Ray,
This has more to do with a shipping error (which can happen sometimes) rather than actual product quality. You can contact the Home Depot store you purchased the breaker from and they will help with a replacement. SIEMENS
