i'm trying to figure out what kind of dc breaker do i need. i have a I have ordered a panel with these specifications:
Reference Number HG260W Maximum power Pmax (W) 250 Tension in Pmax Vmp (V) 30.43
Open Circuit Voltage Voc 37.12 Short circuit current Isc (A) 9,65 Current in Pmax Imp (A) 8,54 Polycrystalline cells
i dont want to spend a lot for a disconnect box. will a 25 amp circuit breaker do? if yes, do i need a single pole one>? and third do i plug only the positive?
sorry too many questions.
DrugFoods: Great video. I'm curious what you used as a graphic at 5 1/2 minutes in to remind people to use the same amperage breaker. It looks really nice.
temesghen efrem: I thank you for taking time to read my comment need your just replaced 15 amps arc fault breaker for one of my bed room and still not work what possibly wrong with it
Trey Doyle: This made it so much easier, thank you!
Ruben Matos: Thanks a lot for the video,im about to start school and all yours videos are helping me a lot.
UrvineSpiegel: I hate arc fault breakers. They're an incomplete technology. Everything arcs. You turn on a light, there is an arc. you plug something in while its on, there is an arc and if its off and something else is drawing from the circuit, theres an arc. you plug something into a power strip, there is an arc. arcs happen all the time. Persisting arcs are what cause fires. Jboxes, even the plastic or ceramic residential jboxs are designed to starve fires of oxygen, making these circumstances extremely rare. on top of that you have smoke alarms to alert residences of the rare case of an electrical fire. But afci will go off for damn near any reason after a few years, even devices already plugged in that suddenly pull a greater load, like AC's or hair dryers can cause them to trip. It is a promising technology, it is something that should be made into a standard in the future, but currently it is in beta, and has no business being in code.
The mechanisms that make arc fault breakers trip deteriorate over time from false triggers like turning on switches, or pluging in a vacum cleaner in the on position. after as little as 2 years, these things will fail do resist false triggers, and trigger on damn near anything, requiring them to be replaced at up to $80 each.
Dave U: Thanks a lot for the video. I just installed an AFCI and it couldn't have been more simple.
RadioRoswellTV: Very easy to understand. Had to put 5 of these in. Thanks for the video.
George McDonald: Thanks - very nice and simple instructions.
Joe Jacovino: they [afb's] seem as we are pay'n extra for what we don't need
waqas ali: I have a problem please tell me In.my shop the sub panel breakers are not tripping but the main meter is tripping rapidly when I turn on the machines
Bill E: Thank you for the video! Very good, simple explanation for someone not so electrically inclined like myself.
Christ Julius: I think you need to take some time and go to inplix website to learn how to make it.
Joh n: with an arc fault breaker (s) can you use 1 neutral with 2 different circuits /breakers I have 2 circuits /wires ,in 1/2 emt, installing 2 arc fault breakers,but in the conduit is only 1 neutral can 2 arc fault breakers share the single neutral in the breaker box ??
TheSeattlegreen: Hey Dominic, I just installed my first 2 pole CAFCI......The neutral is sharing for 2 circuits, and works like a charm.....So it is possible for one neutral to share two hots with a CAFCI......just letting you know
Rene Moran: Awesome video. Very insightful.... Thank you
bobsutube: Thanks Dominic
Tom Frantz: Good video. Thank you for making this...
Jose Avila: What size double breaker do l need to have for a 23 amp.water fall 240 volts thanks
