Square D 100 amp panel


@ulrichfolkers: interesting panel; something doesn't look right to me. Can you post a closeup picture of the highlighted label?

Square D 100 amp panel


I will when I get home tonight. If my memory serves, I believe the panel label indicates that it does not accept tandem breakers. I will double check tonight as well. Also, I here what others have posted about the blank spaces in the panel being usable spaces, but, to me, it appears there's nothing for the breaker to snap onto in those spaces. I should have done this before, I'm going to pull one of the existing breakers to see what's up about these empty spaces.

Thanks

As promised, here's some pictures. First picture showing one breaker removed. Second picture shows panel box label. Third picture shows load center label. With a breaker removed I can see where the breaker locks on to the metal tab on the load center. You folks were spot on, the 2 empty spaces referred to earlier in the post are usable breaker spaces.

I know some have posted that there are tandem breakers that will fit this load center, but, can this be confirmed based upon the image of the load center label? The load center label states: Series E7 QON 16M. It would be nice to know whether tandems are legal in this load center.

Thanks....

I think this was confirmed earlier in this post, but, I believe with a box model number of QOBW20M100-1, tandems are not allowed.

Thanks again..

they used too make what they called piggybacks that look just like a regular QO , but the handles were right up under each other.

According to the picture, no tandems are allowed in your panel. It looked sort of like a split bus panel to me which is why I asked to see the label. It is not.
