Can a Square D 4 pole circuit breaker be used as a 2 pole circuit breaker.
I needed a 2 pole 200 amp breaker for my disconnect. My supplier sent me a 4 pole HOM2200u Square D 200 amp breaker. He told me it can be used as a 4 pole or a 2 pole breaker. Is this true?? I have never seen this done before...its always been my understanding that 4 pole breakers were for 3 phase. Can anyone shed some light on this???
I gotta do a little research on this breaker, I am pretty sure they sent you the wrong one. I will be back.
It is not a three phase breaker.
It shows it as a Miniature 2 space breaker.
