What is a double pole 40 amp breaker?
Double Pole 40 Amp Stab-lok (NC) Plug-On Circuit Breaker Stab-lok breakers are fully interchangeable with all past breakers and deliver the same proven quality. The unique Stab-lok breaker design of only a 1/2 thick per pole, allows for the reduction of the size and weight of the loadcentre.
What is the difference between a circuit breaker and a two-pole breaker?
A circuit breaker is a safety device that shuts off when there’s a current surge. Two-pole breakers control circuits for large appliances. A two-pole breaker consists of two breakers. Each one connects to one of the hot bus bars in the panel, which makes the voltage of the circuit 240 volts.
How many volts does a single-pole breaker carry?
Each pole, or connection point, on the bars, carries 120 volts of electricity. When single-pole breakers are installed, they snap into one pole to receive 120 volts. Double-pole breakers snap onto two poles for a total of 240 volts.
What are the different types of breaker?
There are two types of standard breakers: single-pole and double-pole. Single-pole breakers are rated for 120 volts and 15 or 20 amps. They control standard lighting and outlet circuits as well as some appliance circuits in the house. The breakers themselves are relatively narrow and occupy a single slot in the home’s breaker box.
