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 homes 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.

Resettable? Handles DC?

Asked by Mx6 March 3, 2021
1
Answer

Yes, the breaker is resettable. No, the Type QP does not have DC ratings. The panel itself needs to be rated for DC. A configured Siemens P2 panelboard with Type BQD dolt-on breakers can be configured. Please reach out to your local Home Depot to initiate the process.

Answers

It is only possible if your load center label lists the Type QPF GCI breaker as approved. Otherwise you will be voiding UL in addition to possible fit issues. If the QPF is listed on the label then QF115A is the one pole 15A version you need. If you are uncertain of approval status please submit the load center catalog number so we can advise further.

Answer

You would need a 2 pole breaker for a 240V load. Breaker sizing and conductor selection would be per the NEC. Please check your load center for approved breaker types and consult with a licensed electrician.

Asked by red September 16, 2020

Answer

Yes, the panel label lists EQ-P & EQ-T breakers. The designation of circuit breaker types changed in the the late 1970’s when series ratings were introduced. Before that time ITE manufactured breakers that were identified as EQ-P or EQ-T. In approximately 1976 these designations were changed to circuit breaker Types QP and QT respectively, by dropping the E. Types QP and QT can be used in equipment that have the earlier ITE Types designated on the interior label or marking of the equipment. Note the Westinghouse breaker is not UL approved for this panel.

Answers

Yes, it will. There is no functional difference and there is now a UL substitution letter allowing for use of the Siemens QP in place of Murray MP-T. A copy of the letter has been posted to the community forum and will be visible upon approval.

Will this replace a murray breaker and can you send documentation to verify if it does.

Asked by CJ June 29, 2020

Answer

An image of the UL letter authorizing substitution of Siemens for Murray breakers has been placed in the community forum. It may take up to 24 hours to appear. You may also request a copy at productselection.us@siemens.com.
