What is the difference between 120/240 V and 240 V rated QO breakers?

Issue:
When to use a 120/240V and a 240V QO Circuit Breaker?
 
Product Line:
Miniature Circuit Breakers
 
Environment:
QO and QOB Circuit Breakers
 
Resolution:
A 120/240 V breaker can only be applied on a system where the maximum voltage from any conductor to ground does not exceed 120V. A 240 V breaker can be applied on a delta system where the voltage to ground is 208 V, or where the transformer is not grounded.
