Hey Gents,
There is an ITE circuit breaker panel, that is approx. 20 years old.
There is a mixture of murray breakers and a few other plug in style breakers.
I want to replace all the breakers (water made it's way into the panel. (via the service entrance cable)
I took care of the water problem, and would like to replace all the breakers. The panel is in pretty good shape.
Are you allowed to use Siemens breakers in an ITE panel?
The factory label is missing from the panel door, that talks about what type breakers are allowed to be installed in that panel.
Thanks - SJT

Siemens actually bought the ITE line from Gould, so yes, their breakers are compatible and permitted for use in ITE panels.
