What is the power consumption of the circuit boards in the QO and HOM GFI, CAFI, and DF circuit breakers?

Issue:
The current draw for QO and HOM GFI, CAFI, and DF circuit breakers.

Product Line:
Miniature Circuit Breakers

Environment:
QO and Homeline GFI, CAFI, DF

Resolution:
The electronic module in each breaker consumes 800 mW.  This will make these breakers run slightly warmer than standard breakers.  Monthly consumption is about 0.6 kWh.
This information applies to 1p and 2p breakers.


NOTE:
The electronic module draws 6.66mA at 120Vac; 3.33 mA @ 240V per Linh.
