Thermomagnetic circuit breakers, like the QE3200VH are commonly found in many Square D Meter Centers. The electromagnet characteristics of this breaker allow it to trip instantaneously under large surges in current (e.g., short circuits). A bimetallic strip within the QE3200VH breaker will respond to less extreme but longer-term over-current conditions. These breakers are used in conjunction with an upstream form of protection such as another circuit breaker or fusing.
The QE3200VH is currently obsolete, but it can be purchased from many surplus dealers including LiveWireSupply.com. It’s always best to consult local utility requirements and code prior to installing this breaker. This QE3200VH circuit breaker is used in Square D EZ METER-Pak Meter Centers.
Square D Molded Case Circuit Breakers are designed to provide circuit protection for low voltage distribution protection for low voltage distribution systems. They are described by NEMA as, "a device for closing and interrupting a circuit between separable contacts under both normal and abnormal conditions," and furthermore as, ". . . a breaker assembled as an integral unit in a supporting and enclosing housing of insulating material." The NEC describes them as, "A device designed to open and close a circuit by non-automatic means, and to open the circuit automatically on a predetermined overload of current, without injury to itself when properly applied within its rating."
