Residential Circuit Breakers

Residential Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers are intended for switching and protection of your home's wiring from high temperatures caused by excess current higher than the rating of the wire. While thermal-magnetic circuit breakers are the key element for overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system, there are potentially dangerous conditions that do not involve over current. The following circuit breakers should be utilized to provide further protection.


Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI)

AFCIs employ electronic circuitry to continuously monitor a circuit and detect the unique characteristics of hazardous arcing faults. Siemens AFCIs accomplishes this while still distinguishing these arcing faults from connected loads that inherently arc by design, such as fluorescent lighting, motors, switches, etc.


Plug-in Load Center Breakers

Siemens load center breakers provide easy plug-in connections in Siemens enclosures and the time saving Insta-Wire feature.


Surge and Circuit Protection

Siemens SPD Breaker protects at the point of entry where electricity enters a home through the main electrical service panel.



Ground Fault Protection

GFCIs are an effective means of preventing severe electrical shock to people and equipment. To protect against electrical shock, Siemens GFCIs continuously monitor the difference in current between the hot and neutral conductors.


Main Breakers

Siemens offers several plug-in and bolt-on circuit breakers suitable for use as a main breaker in Siemens load centers, meter combos, and metering products.


Accessories

Siemens offers a varity of field installed accessories including: Padlocking Devices, Handle Ties, Interlocks, and Blocking Devices.
