Thermal magnetic circuit breakers, like the HOM250GFI are commonly found in many residential Square D panels. The electromagnet characteristics of the HOM250GFI allow it to trip instantaneously under large surges in current (e.g., short circuits). A bimetallic strip within the HOM250GFI will respond to less extreme but longer-term over-current conditions. These breakers are very commonly used in homes across the United States. The HOMline breakers are used to protect lighting circuits, dishwashers, dryers, and lots of residential equipment. The ground fault version of this breaker is used to protect humans from electrocution around water sources: hot tubs or whirlpools and often in the kitchen or bathroom near sinks.
The HOM250GFI can be purchased from www.LiveWireSupply.com. Itís always best to consult local utility requirements and code prior to installing this breaker.
Square D Molded Case Circuit Breakers, like the HOM250GFI are designed to provide circuit protection for low voltage distribution protection for low voltage distribution systems. They are described by NEMA as, "a device for closing and interrupting a circuit between separable contacts under both normal and abnormal conditions," and furthermore as, ". . . a breaker assembled as an integral unit in a supporting and enclosing housing of insulating material." The NEC describes them as, "A device designed to open and close a circuit by non-automatic means, and to open the circuit automatically on a predetermined overload of current, without injury to itself when properly applied within its rating."
