There is no current in a 60A circuit breaker.

The above circuit breaker is a 2 pole circuit breaker that will trip when more than 60 AMPS is being drawn through either of the 2 poles.

How many amps can a double pole 100 amp breaker pull?

There are different strengths of circuit breakers and each one can pull a different amount of amps. For example a double pole 100 amp breaker can pull 100 amps of electricity.

Does a double 50 amp breaker make a 100 amp?

No, a double pole 50 amp breaker protects a 240 volt supply at 50 amps. The number that is on the handle of the breaker is the amperage that the breaker will trip at if an overload occurs on the circuit.

What is a 15 amp double pole breaker?

A double pole breaker has one pole attached to one side of your breaker panel's bus or hot leg, and another pole attached to another hot leg or bus, if it is in a residential panel (in the US) each leg of the breaker is 120 volts to ground or neutral and 240 hot leg to hot leg. The 15 amp indicates that the breaker will trip if the circuit exceeds 15 amps across the two outputs of the breaker.

What amperage is a dual 60 amp breaker?

120 amps The above answer is wrong. A 60 amp breaker is designed to trip at 60 amps be it a single pole, double pole or a triple pole that is used on three phase equipment. The number on the handle of a breaker is the trip capacity.

How many amp circuit breaker is needed for a 1000 watt 240 volt electric baseboard heater?

Watts = Amps x Volts. Amps = Watts/Volts = 4.16. The smallest breaker in a house panel is 15 amps. You will need a 2 pole 15 amp breaker. On a # 14 wire you can load that circuit up to 12 amps.

Does double pole 15 amp breaker give 30 amp max protection?

No, it is only used for 15 Amps at 240 Volts. If you need 30 Amps at 240 Volts, use a 30 amp double pole breaker.

What is a 2 pole 30A circuit breaker?

A 2 pole 30A circuit breaker is a device that is used to supply a 240 volt power source for a device that operates on 240 volts and under 30 amps of current draw

What's a double breaker 20 amps and 30 amps?

A double breaker is a breaker that has 2 switches on it. One of the switches is 20 amps and the other is 30 amps.

Can you use a double pole 15 amp breaker in place of a 20 amp single pole breaker for a 12000 BTU air conditioner?

If the 12,000 BTU A/C only requires 20 amps to run then yes you can use the same 12 gauge wire but you cannot change it to a 15 amp breaker. You will need to install a 20 amp double pole breaker. If it requires more than 20 amps you will have to replace the wiring and breaker.

How do you calculate amp of circuit breaker to use on a 4800w oven?

Ovens typically run at 240 volts which will be a two pole breaker in your panel. Watts = volts x amps. 4800 / 240 = 20 amps. If by chance you are using 120 volts then double it to 40 amps. All wiring must conform to size of breaker used.

Rating of a 3 pole circuit breaker is the same for each conductor?

Yes, the rating of a 3 pole circuit breaker is the same for each conductor that is connected to it. A three pole breaker rated at 30 amps will have 3 #10 wires from it that connect to the load.

Do you split wattage on 2 pole breaker?

If the load is rated 220 or 230 or 240 volts (all the same thing), and specifies a wattage rating, that wattage rating is at the double pole voltage. You wouldn't make any adjustments to it. The load should also indicate the input current in Amps, which is used for sizing your breaker. If not, watts=amps x volts, so amps=watts/volts. For example, a 3800 Watt heater at 240v would require 15.83 amps. The breaker for this circuit would be 125 percent of that (safety factor), or 20 amps, 2 pole.

Can a sub panel from a 15 amp breaker be used with a branch circuit with 20 amp breaker?

Yes but it will limit your 20 amp circuit to 15 amps. Any amperage over 15 amps on the 20 amps circuit will trip the breaker protecting the sub panel.

Does a double-pole 30A breaker pull 15A per leg and if so why can't 14 gauge be used since 14 is rated for 15A?

A double pole 30 amp breaker can pass 30 amps per pole, therefore #10 wire should be used.

How can you wire a normal 120V outlet out of a double pole circuit breaker?

well, the easy answer is, black wire to one pole of the breaker, white wire to the neutral bus with all the other white wires, bare wire to the ground bus with all the other bare (or green) wires. BUT the breaker must be 20 amps or less for residential outlets and you much match the wire size to the breaker, #14 for 15 amp breaker, #12 for a 20 amp breaker AND if there is only going to be one outlet, if it is a 20 amp circuit, the outlet has to be rated for 20 amps. Yes, but why would you want to? It is unclear to anybody else what you are doing and therefore a hazard. Do it right. Use a single pole breaker designed for 110V.

The Function Of A Twenty Amp Breaker?

It limits the current to the circuit at 20 Amps. If a load on the circuit draws more than 20 Amps the breaker will trip and interrupt the current to all devices on the circuit.

What is KA in Circuit Breaker?

KA stands for kilo-amps, or thousands of amps. Thus a 2KA breaker means it will trip when the load exceeds 2,000 amps.

What is a circuit breaker and why are they helpful?

A circuit breaker ensures that a circuit cannot draw more amps that are rated for the breaker. It protects the circuit wires from overheating and arcing so that a fire or shock hazard does not result.

What is 6InA in circuit breaker?

61 nano-amps is 0.061 milliamps or 0.000061 amps

What is the continuous current draw on a 20 amp circuit breaker?

Depends on what you have connected to the circuit. It is less than 10 amps or the breaker would trip. A rule of thumb is you design for about 80% load related to the breaker. For 20 amps that would equal 16 amps.

A small appliance circuit will be protected by a circuit breaker rated at?

A small appliance circuit will be protected by a circuit breaker rated at 15 amps if the circuit wires are #14. If the circuit wires are #12 then a 20 amp circuit breaker could be used.

Is a two pole 30 amp breaker good for 30 amps per circuit for a total of 60 amps?

Good question. A 30 amp two pole breaker allows up to 30 amps per leg or phase to conduct in fact provided a "total" of 60 amps. However, 220 volt devices require the rated amperage for each leg. So a device which requires 220 volt and 60 amps requires a two pole 60 amp breaker and the correct wire size to feed it. (# 6 gauge wire)

What would happenif you put an 8 amp circuit-breaker in a power circuit?

The circuit would be protected up to 8 amps before the breaker would trip. Any more that 8 amps and the circuit would open and shut the circuit off.

What is the Electrical circuit breaker making and making capacity?
