Question

Are these breakers rated for 120VDC?

Asked on 01/02/2017 by J Campbell

Top Answer

I'm inclined to say no. The maximum voltage allowed on 20amp 220 volt Blue Sea circuit breaker is 277 VAC and 65 VDC. My guess is that the DC Voltage on a 120VAC circuit breaker is a whole lot less. My guess is that it has something to do with the magnetic trip part of the circuit breaker.

Answer

I just noticed that you had 120VDC... I think you may have meant either 12VDC or 120VAC. There are no Direct Current 120 volt systems out there that I'm aware. JD

Answer

Blue Seas relabels the breakers from Carling Technologies. These breakers will operate DC or AC (up to 250 volts, 50/60 cycles). Hope this helps...

Answer

I am using one at 120 vAC. Don't know about DC.

i there a special tool to remowe the old breaker from the panel?

Asked on 01/11/2015 by Halim P

Top Answer

A screwdriver and access the rear of the panel is all that is required. The front of the breaker has two threaded holes. A phillips head screw is inserted through the front of the panel to secure the breaker in place.

Answer

No just a few screws hold it in place. Just make sure all power is disconnected before attempting.

Answered on 01/12/2015 by Brice Quibodeaux

Answer

Hello: No special tools required - just remove the two screws that hold the front of the switch to the panel and then remove the wires from the back of the switch. Pretty simple and understandable once you look at both sides of the original switch. Getting to the back of the switch might be a bigger challenge depending on where it is. Best

What is the difference between white and black models?

Asked on 02/20/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I used them on different segments of the panel.. so color coding lights or main switches are quick and easy to identify

Answer

I'm not aware of a technical difference (though there may be one) - I selected the white for ease of identification on the board.

Answer

Just color so as to match your exciting panel color.

Need to replace a Airpax UPG6-27822-11 15 amp breaker in my Hunter, is this a match?

Asked on 03/07/2015 by Tom Busch

Top Answer

I have a Hunter 41 and just noticed your question while responding to someone else who emailed me. These breakers are pretty much standard and the Blue Seas should be a replacement for the Airpax (which used to be manufactured in Cambridge, MD). A minor difference that I noticed is the Airpax have tabs on the back that are slightly bent at a bit of an angle where the Blue Sea breakers have straight tabs.

Question

I'm replacing a breaker from a 1978 egg harbor. Airpax, white toggle, push-on connecters. It has a yellow stripe on the back. Is this a rating code? Can not read printed label. Other breakers in panel have assorted colored stripes. This for bilge blower. 3/4" high, 2" wide, about 13/4"deep. Looks very much like picture. Jack

Top Answer

Paste this link airpax.sensata The yellow stripe or other color stripe will give the last two digits for ordering correct breaker. Not sure blue seas makes a stab in breaker or not. Hope this helps

Mike , thanks for reply, but that link opens to over 2,000 possibilities. Too many abbreviations for me to follow. Went to three largest electric suppliers in town, inc. Grainger's, no one has a clue. I'm stumped. Jack

Question

This breaker would fit my panel, EXCEPT that my panel has breakers about 1/4 inch narrower, that is about 1 3/4 inches wide instead of 2.0 inches wide which is what I think the breaker pictured here is. Does anyone have a suggestion about where I can find the narrower breakers?? Thanks, Bob

Asked on 06/21/2013 by Bob P

Top Answer

I am not sure this will answer your question, but when I needed different sized breakers, I went to an electrical supply house and discussed it with the people there. They always had great ideas more likely to actually have a solution. Good luck, bob

Answer

Bob, Does you panel use the screw terminal connections? Overall dimensions of a AA1 breaker are, 2" high x 3/4" wide by 2" deep for toggle breakers, for rocker breakers the depth is 2.40". Do you have any already installed in your panel. They might have a number on them. Hope this answers your question.

Question

Is there and easy way to install these out side having to remove all the breakers just to put one in or replace one? Man, I have a full house and just to change out one breaker is a real bummer unless I am doing soneting wrong. If so tell me what it is. I did this once already and now must upgrade toa 20 amp breaker and it is going to require me to undo 10 breakers just to replace the 15 amp with a 20 amp. I think Blue Sea needs to rethink their breaker box designs in order for easy access and breaker replacements. I made my breaker box to swing open by using hing's which made access a breeze but as far as replacing breakers it is a bummer. So if you know something I don't please let me know. Thanks Denny

Top Answer

The answer is yes and no. sometimes you can take the screw out of the positive buss bar side completely,then remove the two front screws and pop the breaker out of its posistion. Otherwise you have to keep disconnecting and loosening until the breaker is liberated from its spot. On some installs I have installed wire jumpers on the positve side and gotten rid of the solid buss bar and this helps alot on changeout of breakers. I hop this helps,Mark T.
