There is a number on the end of each breaker handle. This number represents the maximum amperage handling the breaker will allow before tripping. There is a number on the end of each breaker handle. This number represents the maximum amperage handling the breaker will allow before tripping.

How many amps are in a Circuit Breaker Double Pole 60A?

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 much does a circuit breaker actually cost?

The cost of a circuit breaker depends on the brand that you get and how many amps and how much voltage is running to the breaker. The average price is between 20 to 50 dollars.


What size amp circuit breaker should be used for a geyser and why?

Depends on how many amps it pulls and the size of the wire in the circuit.


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.


How many amps would it take to kick a 15 amp breaker with 7 ohms resistance on a 277 volt circuit?

A 15 amp circuit breaker should trip at 15 amps regardless of the load voltages or impedances. If you have 277 volts and 7 ohms, the current would be 39.5 amps and a 15 amp circuit breaker should trip.


How many amps circuit breaker is required for 1400 watts?

To answer this question a voltage needs to be stated. I = W/E, Amps = Watts/Volts.


How many Stringing Christmas Lights can you put up before a fuse blows?

Depends on how many amps the string(s) draw, and how many amps are on the circuit (look at the circuit breaker, it has a number at the end of the switch). If the lights are the only thing on that circuit, you should be able to add strings that equal the amps on that circuit.


Watt how many watts for amps breaker?

Watts is the product of amps times volts. If you are asking how many watts can be put on a 15 amp circuit breaker then 15 x 120 = 1800. This will probably trip the breaker because it is close to the breaker threshold. So lets say 1600 watts.


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.


How many amps are in 240 volts?

There are not any amps in 240 volts. They are apples and oranges. The amperage in a circuit is determined by the wire size and the size of the overcurrent protection device, E.I., the circuit breaker or fuses.


How many amp circuit breaker is need for a 4800 watt home heating water tank?

Running on 240 v the heater draws 20 amps so the curcuit breaker should be 25 or 30 amps.


How many amps breaker is needed for a 400 watt heater?

A 400 watt heater can safely be used on a 15 amp circuit. The size breaker needed for a circuit is determined by the size of the wiring in that circuit. AWG #14 wire requires a 15 amp breaker. AWG # 12 wire requires a 20 amp breaker.
