Product Overview

Circuit breakers provide a manual means of energizing and de-energizing a circuit. In addition, circuit breakers provide automatic overcurrent protection of a circuit. A circuit breaker allows a circuit to be reactivated quickly after a short circuit or overload is cleared. Unlike fuses, which must be replaced when they open, a simple flip of the breaker's operating handle restores the circuit. Siemens QP breakers provide easy plug-in connections in Siemens enclosures and the time saving Insta-Wire feature. Siemens offers three AIC ratings for these breakers: QP at 10K AIC, QPH at 22K AIC and HQP at 65 K AIC.
  • 22 kA interrupting rating
  • Siemens type QPH circuit breakers provide easy plug-in connections in Siemens enclosures
  • Compatible with Siemens PL and ES series load centers
  • Use for overload and short circuit protection of your electrical system
  • Thermal magnetic

Answers

The QP/MP breaker line have different connector range. The 110/2 and 125/2 breaker will take #2-1/0 CU or 1/0-2/0 AL. Good luck!

I am not sure what is meant by ".c" load center, but this breaker will work in nearly all Siemens load centers. any of the QP, QPH, or HQP breakers are listed for use as branch breakers in Siemens load centers.

The design change to the low amp construction for the Q260 was in 2015. There is not a unique identifier other than the lugs themselves. There is a noticeable difference.

Answer

The page you reference needs some revision for clarification. There was a design change in the 10kA rated 60A Type QP breaker only. Previously it accepted #8-#2/0 AWG Cu or #8-#2/0 AWG Al. It has been redesigned for "low-amp construction" which means it now accepts #8-#6 AWG Cu or #8-#4 AWG Al Wire. Previously, a Q260 was identical to a Q270. Now a Q260 will match an existing Q250. To keep the high-amp construction please opt for the 22kA rated Type QPH catalog number Q260H which still accepts #8-#2/0 AWG Cu or or #8-#2/0 AWG Al. We apologize for the confusion.

The lugs were very large and accepted the #2 AL conductors quite well. I have had difficulty with those other brands when feeding subpanels.
