    American FPE Breakers

    Can anyone tell me where I can find spec sheets/U.L. listing or approvals for American FPE style breakers? I have an inspector asking for them for a small job I'm looking to install.
    Thank you,
    Joe

    Don’t they have a UL sticker on them?

    I wasn’t aware they were available, but that means little.

    The UL listing and issue number are on the label. Should also get info in the box with more details.

    I think you are asking for documentation on "American Electric" breakers that are replacements for the FPE "Stab-loc" series, but some are not understanding that is what you are asking about.

    You nailed that! There should still be a sticker somewhere.

    Well they never co-existed. FPE sold the whole (USA) stab lok product line to ACBC in 1988

    I think OP's inspector wants verification that the "American Electric" breakers are listed to be installed in the "FPE" loadcenter. Since they took over the line the chance is pretty good, kind of no different than a Siemens breaker in an old ITE panel.

    I believe they do. The inspector is looking for documentation.
    Thanks for responding

    Yessir! That's exactly what I'm looking for! I'm sorry I didn't explain it correctly, but that is what I'm looking for.
    Thank you!

    I sent the paperwork to the inspector and he told me "There is no mention that these are replacement breakers for Fed Pacific."

    I responded "Paul they are Stab Lok UL listed breakers. They can’t use the Federal Pacific name as they were bought out in 1988 by American Breaker Corp This is the only paperwork available and obviously they are FP replacement as there is no other breaker of that construction and style


    His response today "it's your license, a permit is not required for replacement of breakers"

    What does that mean?? He doesn't trust the documentation I sent to him??
