About This Product

The Square D by Schneider Electric QO 20 Amp One-Pole Circuit Breaker is intended for overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system. The ANSI-certified and UL-listed unit is rated for 120/240 VAC and 10,000 AIR. All QO circuit breakers are equipped with the exclusive Visi-Trip indicator. When a QO Visi-Trip circuit breaker trips, the handle snaps to a midpoint position between in. OFF in. and in. ON in. and a highly visible, red indicator easily identifies the tripped breaker. This enables you to easily distinguish which breaker has tripped in a load center that may contain up to 42 different circuit breakers. QO circuit breakers have features no other manufacturer can offer. They come in many different sizes and can meet the needs of virtually every function in your home or business. These types of quality, industry exclusive products keep the Square D brand ahead of the competition and are builders' and electrical contractors' first choice in electrical protection.

Q:Is this the type of switch I need in my breaker box to run my 120v tanning bed?
by|May 15, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello PamThom, This breaker is recommended for your application. Normally, a 15A breaker will be good for a tanning bed with 16 lamps or less. While 20A is good for any number of lamps. This breaker offers both ground fault and Parallel & Series Arc fault protection. Warm regards. Schneider Electric Customer Care

    Q:I have a QOM2FP breaker that went bad, can you tell me what a good replacement would be? I can't find the exact replacement for my breaker

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Alex, QOM2FP is not the proper part for a breaker, the reference attached is the QO120CAFIC that is the part number for a QO branch breaker for QO load centers only, you can contact us to check the specs on your load center and give you the proper catalog number using our chat live https://www.se.com/us/en/work/support/customer-care/contact-schneider-electric.jsp where an agent will be able to give you further assistance on this matter.

          The 15 amp breakers I bought work flawlessly. Square D QO (quick off) are always a solid choice when updating your electrical needs.

          Square D QO series are the only breakers that are rated for DC usage, as stated on their web site. I used 4 to connect 16 100 watt solar panels to my charge controller. Another perfect combination of items purchased through Homedepot.com!

          I used this for a new outlet I installed in my garage. The outlet was a spare left over from a previous project so it wasn't a GFCI outlet. The circuit breaker worked great once I found the right model that would fit in the breaker panel. Only complaint I have is the metal clips on the breaker that connect to the hot and neutral bus bars. I had to use a screw driver to open up the neutral clips to get them to fit in the panel. The clip for the hot wire kept popping out of the breaker and I had to pop it back into place multiple times to get the breaker to attach to the panel. Once this was done the breaker worked fine and tripped when I tested the outlet with an outlet tester.

            Not suitable for new home construction. Must have AFCI Breakers. Please note this review is based strictly on my individual experience with the breaker. Many will say the fault is mine, and that is ok. It is. However my hope with this review is to save others my distress by impressing upon Home Depot the fact that this breaker is NOT for new residential buildings and this fact should be noted for all 15 and 20 amp breakers that are not AFCI breakers now that the NEC by code has replaced almost all of these old standard $8-11 breakers with $36-50 AFCI breakers. The old breakers can still be used for New Business building construction but not new home except for extremely limited use. Currently they are still allowed for old home repairs too. Next years' NEC code updates, could phase them into all internal residential circuits. Currently AFCI breakers are not required for residential bathroom, fridge, water heater, dryer, or stove circuits (currently in 2019). A/C wiring is exempt as well. Backround; I am building a retirement home and was attempting to do everything I could to minimize outside contractor costs. Having done wiring years ago, I knew I could do the house wiring with a little NEC reading (I did not do enough obviously, DOH!). I ordered the old style breakers. Now I will return them and upgrade to AFCIs which impacts my house budget by $700-800. Returns happen all the time in construction but this might have been alleviated if Home Depot noted these breakers are not suitable for new home construction, except in limited use. I attached a picture so the physical differences can be noted. Luckily the 200 Amp Square D box I already wired into the house is AFCI ready. (TYG) Cheers.
