Homeline Surgebreaker Question

gardug0213June 16, 2012

I have a Square D Homeline 200A panel. I just installed an in-panel Homeline Surgebreaker [HOM2175SB] on the top right 2 breaker positions [#2 & #4] with the neutral at the top most position on the nautral bar located on the right side of the panel. My question is, this panel has 2 neutral bars [left and right side]. Would there be a need for 2 Surgebreakers [one on each neutral bar], or is the single Surgebreaker giving me adequate coverage on circuits attached to both neutral bars.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

No. One will do it. The neutral/ground bars are pretty strongly bonded together out of necessity. The instructions for the device do recommend keeping the connecting wire as short as possible without any sharp bends.
