OOPS, this was meant to be a reply to a comment posted in the "Halogen" topic.

I'm thinking a breaker rated "HACR" might be a good workaround, if that's not what's already there.


There is nothing special about HACR breakers. In fact for the past 10 yrs or so HACR has been part of the standard UL test for all UL 489 breakers.

On the other hand, HID breakers do have special switching characteristics. I am not sure about their inrush capability, but I believe this is part of their rating.
