Title: HYBRID NEUTRAL PLUG ON BAR WITH DISTRIBUTED PITCH
Abstract:
A neutral bus bar 150 is provided for an electrical distribution apparatus, such as an electrical panel 100. The neutral bus bar includes an elongated body 152 that includes a plurality of wire connectors 154 and plug-on neutral landing sections 156 distributed along a length of the body. Each wire connector includes a side hole 172 and a top landing hole 184 on the body. The top landing hole can receive a hold down screw 176 to secure an electrical wire received in the side hole 172 from a wire-type circuit breaker. Each plug-on neutral landing section is able to receive a plug-on neutral clip from a plug-on neutral type circuit breaker. Adjacent plug-on neutral landing sections have at least one wire connector arranged therebetween on the body. The plug-on neutral landing sections are also distributed with a pitch spacing that corresponds to a pole spacing of circuit breakers connectable on the electrical distribution apparatus.
