ecimark said:Thanks, I dont understand why they do not go to the expense of having there breakers approved to use on other panels? or maybe they have and they were not approved!
NO, no.... It will not void the listing, but it may void the warranty. After all, the same UL that lists the panels also lists classified replacement breakers that fit that same panel. Not talking about HOM here, but in general.John Deere Man said:It is not just being listed through Sqd to be approved for use in other panels but the other panels state on there listing as well that using other type breakers in there equipment will void the listing & waranty of there equipment.

After demoing a circuit (live of course ) and shorting it out, with nothing more than a small arc and the slightest burn mark in my pliers, I was sold on the effectiveness of QO breakers.

jim dungar said:From the Square D website:
Are Homeline breakers (HOM prefix) UL listed for use in a CHALLENGER or any other competitive load centers?
No. Homeline circuit breaker are only UL listed for use in Square D HOMELINE load centers.
iwire said:Jim, as I understand it no breaker at all is 'listed' for use in other manufacturers panels.
Some breakers are UL 'Classified' for use in other manufacturers panels.
So I wonder if Square Ds answer is slightly misleading?
Sorta like guilty until proven innocent? If we have to keep up to date on products, so do you. Sorry, but I strongly disagree.cowboyjwc said:That's one great reason for contractors to be on site and have all of the information they need to show us what they did is correct.
