The list is in the box with the switches, but it CANNOT be used in place of the QO switches.
Siemens fits into GE Siemens switches can be used in GE enclosures and are commonly known to be compatible. When using Siemens switches, be sure to observe the size and voltage requirements, as using the wrong switch can have dangerous consequences. It can melt the electrical box and even cause a fire.
Siemens manufactures a RATED switch that can ONLY be replaced on certain Square D panels as specified in the switch documentation. So that I can build a SQ D Homeline in a Siemens panel.
There is no replaceable circuit breaker.
CutlerHammer CL switches can be used in a Siemens panel.
They are not interchangeable. They fit, but are not listed for use in any of the panels.
Yes, Siemens manufactures a QD series switch which is UL listed and for use in a very specific Sq list. D goods centers are classified.
No. Only Siemens switches are designed, manufactured and listed for use in the Siemens panel. Also, not all Siemens switches work on your panel.
Siemens Home Depot Power Distribution circuit breaker.
The CutlerHammer and Eaton product families are identical and compatible. The part number has not changed, only the Eaton name has been placed on the product.
- Some research has shown that the QP switch consists of 1 or 2 large switches protecting the 110V or 220V circuit and is manufactured by Siemens. Square D is another manufacturer of circuit breakers and service panels.
The circuit load determines the size of the switch you need and you need to make sure you get the correct marking as not all switches are interchangeable. Brand: Always install the correct brand of switches in the control panel. Some switches are interchangeable, but many are not, although they look the same.
Not all so-called interchangeable switches are U.L. Registered for trade. Not all switches are interchangeable; there are many types of switches, including screw switches. As for plug-in switches, Square D QO and CutlerHammer CH and some others do not physically fit other panels.
For what it’s worth, there’s absolutely no need to have a home line breaker in the panel as GE’s full-size THQL is common on nearly any large socket or box.
Square-D Circuit Breakers: Square-D circuit breakers work on the same principles as their Murray counterparts. The advantages of Square D switches include a very robust design and easy installation. Square D circuit breakers work reliably and are very safe.
Eaton acquired the CutlerHammer business through the acquisition of CutlerHammer Inc. in 1974.
No, as the panels do not have any tests with other switches. You only see half of the equation. Both must be respected.
Circuit breakers are also safer because most electrical connections are not exposed, reducing the risk of electric shock and other electrical hazards. Murray electrical enclosures are designed to withstand the toughest conditions.
Same manufacturer, different switches
