Product Design Features

Product Line:

Resolution:
The QOL3225 Main lug kit is ONLY used for the High Amp 150-225A max 3-Phase QO™ Series S0_ load centers.
DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM AMPERE RATING OF THE LOAD CENTER.

The QOL3225 Main lug kit will accept (1) #6 - 300kcmil Al/Cu wire, BUT to find out the maximum wire size permitted in the particular load center per UL wire bending space, see either the wiring diagram on the load center enclosure or the tables in the current Square D Digest under the heading "Main wire size".

The attached video is ONLY to supplement the INSTRUCTIONS that come with the kit. PLEASE make sure to read the instructions and all the below Safety Information that is located in the instructions BEFORE working on any electrical equipment.
A PDF copy of the complete instructions is attached below the video.


Make sure to turn OFF ALL Power supplying the equipment and verify the power is OFF using a properly rated voltage sensing device, BEFORE working on or with electrical equipment. 

1) Once all Safety steps are followed, begin the kit installation by following the instructions.
2) Remove Cover from load center.
3) Remove the four main circuit breaker mounting screws(A), the three connector mounting nuts (B) and the Main Circuit Breaker (C) (including the connectors). See the illustration at the bottom of page 2 of the instructions.
4) Install the main lugs on the studs of the bus bar. Use the new connector mounting nuts, see illustration in instructions, and torque the nuts to 75 lb-in (8.48 N-m). 
5) If the Main Breaker Knockout is removed from the cover, close the opening using the Q2FP Filler plate(order separately) and install per the video.

6) If the load center is used as service equipment, apply the 'Service Disconnect' labels (included), to the load center cover near the service disconnect handles and install the neutral bonding screw (included), if one is not already installed.
7) If the load center is NOT used as service equipment, discard the neutral bonding screw included with the kit. If a neutral bonding screw is already installed, remove and discard it. Remove "Service Disconnect" or "Main" label if installed near the main circuit breaker opening on the cover.
8) Replace the cover.
