Product Line:
QO and Homeline Load Centers

Environment:
Installation

Cause:
Application

Resolution:
1) Square D QO and Homeline load centers are UL tested and listed as complete devices and should not really be installed in larger enclosures or cabinets.
2) The UL listing would not be violated or voided, but the performance of the load center and branch circuit breakers may be effected and would be the responsiblity of the installer.
3) Also, BEFORE installing any load center in a larger enclosure or cabinet, MAKE sure it meets the National Electrical Code(NEC)  and the local code authority approves the installation
