Types of Circuit Breaker Terminals
Quick Connect Tabs Terminals
This type of circuit breaker terminal is known as a push-on connection and is made without the need for external hardware such as screws, meaning that it takes quickly to install and is rated up to 30 amps.
Screw terminations are designed to attach the connecting wires, fork or ring connectors, or bus bar to the circuit breaker by tightened screws.
It is made up of a terminal with a threaded hole and an 8-32 or 10-32 screw.
This type of circuit breaker terminal is available in two styles known as
- Bus Type
- Upturned Lugs
Bus type screw terminals are designed to make a completely flush connection with the bus bar if one chooses the bus bar as the conductor. The terminal is accustomed so that a vertically mounted breaker would connect to a horizontally mounted busbar.
Screw terminals with upturned lugs will have the corners of the bus terminal bent slightly in an upward direction, which offers a more secure connection for fork or ring connectors.
Threaded Stud Terminals
Threaded stud terminals are designed to attach connecting wires, fork, or ring connectors to the circuit breaker by tightened hex nuts that can fit a stud terminal. They are designed for higher amperage ratings and are considered the most reliable and stable form of connection.
Box Wire Connector Terminals
Box wire connector terminals are high amperage connectors made up of a box lug and screw, meaning that it is designed for direct wire connections.
Printed Circuit Board Terminals
