Sorry, could not resist!

No... I doubt we ever will, as FPE's seem too small already. And how would you be able to keep it on with so much other arching going on....

Funny you should ask...

Check out Page 5 of this catalog http://www.schneider-electric.ca/www/ecat/documents/b_section.pdf

Common stuff in Canada. CSA approved and all. The only thing I don't know is if they are UL listed.

I will vouch from personal experience that the new line of breakers trip properly, but my understanding is that the new FPE (called Federal Pioneer up here) StabLok stuff has no association to the old Federal Pacific stuff except for identical bus/breaker style.

Thanks for the link/e-mail. I'll contact Schneider and see about the listing.
