Likewise, people ask, what circuit breakers are compatible with challenger?
The UL-listed breaker is compatible with Westinghouse, Challenger and Bryant load centers and has a maximum load of 240-Volt.
- Primary function of a circuit breaker is to protect the wire from overheating (overload) and fault currents (short circuit)
- Amperage rating: 20 Amp.
- Single pole 1 in.
Similarly, which electrical panels are bad? The most common bad electrical panels are actually identified by their brand: Federal Pacific, Sylvania and Zinsco, however, it is surprising how often distribution or sub panels are incorrectly wired.
Thereof, who bought Challenger breakers?
The Challenger mark is owned by American Circuit Breaker Company (the company that makes the aftermarket FPE breakers) for small breakers. The Challenger switchgear division was sold to Westinghouse, then Cutler Hammer ended up with the switchgear end of things when they bought out the Westinghouse breaker stuff.
What brands of circuit breakers are interchangeable?
While you now know that Eaton breakers, Westinghouse breakers, Square D breakers, and Cutler-Hammer breakers are largely compatible, you still need to find the exact models you need for your facility.
