A 240 volt breaker can be removed and replaced with 2 - 120 volt breakers.

The existing 240 volt breaker should not be used to supply 2 separate circuits.

The points where circuits interconnect with other circuits is known as what?

The point where wires interconnect with other wires is known as a "junction". In your panel the circuit breakers are connected to the buss, each circuit breaker feeds a different circuit. Different circuits are not connected together.


What are the names of different subcircuits of domestic wiring?

In electrical trade terminology, the use of the word "sub", as in sub panel, refers to an auxiliary distribution panel that is fed from the main distribution panel.The circuits from a sub panel can be named the same as the circuits from the main distribution panel. A circuit name is usually named after the device that the circuit connects to.For example, range circuit, hot water tank circuit, lighting circuit, and so on.

What is a branching circuit?

Each of the circuit breakers in the service panel controls electricity on a branch circuit. A branch circuit is typically a loop of wire that runs from the service panel, out to receptacles, light fixtures, appliances, etc. and back again.

Is a circuit breaker better than a glass fuse?

Each device has its own special use. Glass fuses can protect circuit at very low amperages. They are usually used to protect printed circuit boards and control panel circuits. Breakers protect circuits from short circuits and overloads. These devices are used in service distribution panels to protect the wires that feed the loads. Circuit breakers can be from 15 amps up into the thousands of amps.


Can you use a GFCI on an unswitched circuit line red that uses the same neutral white for a switched circuit coming from the other phase line black in a 240v breaker panel?

Yes. You are allowed to use a neutral for one circuit from each phase of your service. For example, in a residential service, you can use the same neutral for circuits 1 and 3. In a commercial (3 phase) service, you can use a neutral for circuits 1, 3, and 5. You will experience problems if you use a neutral for two 'black' circuits or two 'red' circuits, if the circuits originate from the same phase bus bar. Also, AFCI's are sensitive to sharing neutrals, but GFCI's are not.


How does electricity get distributed in the household?

Electricity get distributed in the household through electrical circuits. The circuits distribute voltage to receptacles, light and hard wired appliances. These circuits are fed from breakers that are in the distribution panel. The distribution panel is where the utility company's service supply terminates. The distribution panel is the central location where the household circuits originate.


Where to find a circuit breaker?

Circuit breakers can be found in any circuit breaker panel. New circuit breakers can be bought at any shop that sells parts for installing or repairing electrical wiring circuits.
