Din-rail mounted thermal magnetic circuit breakers, like the QOB120 are commonly found in many light commercial and light industrial Square D panels. The electromagnet characteristics of the QOB120 allow it to trip instantaneously under large surges in current (e.g., short circuits). A bimetallic strip within the QOB120 will respond to less extreme but longer-term over-current conditions. These breakers are very commonly used in commercial and light industrial applications across the United States. The QOB120 breakers are used to small motors, lights and other small equipment.
The QOB120 can be purchased from www.LiveWireSupply.com. Itís always best to consult local utility requirements and code prior to installing this breaker.
Square D Molded Case Circuit Breakers, like the QOB120 are designed to provide circuit protection for low voltage distribution protection for low voltage distribution systems. They are described by NEMA as, "a device for closing and interrupting a circuit between separable contacts under both normal and abnormal conditions," and furthermore as, ". . . a breaker assembled as an integral unit in a supporting and enclosing housing of insulating material." The NEC describes them as, "A device designed to open and close a circuit by non-automatic means, and to open the circuit automatically on a predetermined overload of current, without injury to itself when properly applied within its rating."
