I'm running a remote load center about 100' away from my main panel. I plan to run 240 VAC split phase A/B on a 50 amp DP circuit breaker. The code table calls for #1 AWG for A & B, No. 2 for the neutral

All the Eaton breakers max out at #6 AWG. Can you purchase an Eaton breaker that will fit my panel and handle the #1 wire?

Answer: 
Unfortunately Grainger does not currently stock Eaton breakers, but could potentially quote you if you know what series breaker you are using. NSI Industries does make a pin terminal for the 1/0 wire that would allow you to fit into a #2 AWG lug, which may be easier to find. Please call us at 1-800-Grainger so we can discuss your panel and breakers in greater detail.

We need to understand the type of wire you are installing and how it will be installed to answer your question for 100% accuracy. As an example, NEC Table 310.16 calls for 3 AWG wire without any correction factors taken into consideration. Please call us at 1-800-Grainger so we can discuss your installation in greater detail.

Answer: 
Grainger has contacted the product supplier and has been advised by them of the following: This application would be best accomplished with a power wire stripper similar to one a recycling center would use. Grainger does not currently offer power strippers, or a hand tool suitable for this application.
