    Default Multiple conductors at GE THQL Breaker?

    Anyone know if these are listed for 2 conductors - I can't find the specs at the GE site.

    I've never seen terminals like those rated for more than one wire.

    Certainly that is not the "number of wires allowed per terminal" as, for example the first line of that table, you would not be allowed to run 2 #12 in parallel for that air conditioner. Or the second line of 3 #12 in parallel for each terminal or 6 #12 going to that 20 amp double pole breaker.

    The attached is from the next page after what Bill posted and shows the wire sizes allowed.

    Only one conductor per terminal.

    Bill,

    Still trying to figure out what the "Wire Sizes" on that first table are supposed to indicate - do you have any information on what that is saying?

    The page has mistakes. Where it says 2#12 it should say 2-12, meaning sizes from AWG 2 to AWG 12.

    GE rates the lugs on the breakers for a single conductor, no exceptions.

    Dunno when the catalog will get fixed.

    Now that page makes sense. Thank you.
