Re: Circuit Breaker Cross Reference Chart?
You can't do that!! Just because it fits does not mean that you can use it in the panel. You need to be selling UL "classified" breakers. These are breakers that have been tested and are permitted to be used in the panels made by other manufacturers. UL requires that these breakers be supplied with a list of panels that they can be used with. You must either use a breaker that is listed for use in the panel (that would be a breaker that is suppled by the manufacturer of the panel) or a breaker that is classified for use in specific panels (this breaker would not be of the same manufacturer as the panel). Some breakers are listed for use in one panel and classified for use in other panels. Use of a breaker that is not either listed or classified for use in the panel is a code violation.
I often get this question from my customers.I know some breakers will fit another manufactures panel ( I can tell by comparing the size, footprint and connectors of two different brands).
The code only applies to T&M work....it does not apply to contract work.
