Tandem Breaker


Does anyone know of a tandem breaker that will work in a Federal Pioneer stab-lok BE-120-40 Panel.

What type of tandem do you want, almost all federal pioneer breakers are the skinny type and you can get them in 2 pole as well.

Are you located in Canada, i am assumeing due to the type of panel you have.

He would be correct, like i said most breakers for that panel are the size of a tandem breaker(1/2" or so thick) of other panels.

Your two options are to replace the panel you have now with a bigger one, or install a subpanel in order to get the room you need.
