Any one seen one of these? My supplier is telling me he's having a hard time locating them(there not a distributer but can get their hands on certain square d products)

The do make them but not sure what the availability is.

Why don’t you use standard QO Breakers? Square D panelboards will accept both QOB and QO breakers.

"Why don’t you use standard QO Breakers? Square D panelboards will accept both QOB and QO breakers."

I was totally blown away when I found that out a few yews back. Either way they do make a QOB AFCI, but yes you may have to find a supplier/distrubuter that carries them. A place here in SF, CA carriers them on the shelf, but doubt you will want to drive that far.

Curt could... Maltby on 7th. I think they have a location closer though?

What about older NQOB panelboards? They only accept QOBs.

If you are in a hurry and dont mind getting reamed, try Grainger.

For what it's worth, Cutler-Hammer makes UL classified breakers for Sq D panels.....their business seems to pick up whenever Sq D has a problem....
