Does anyone recognize this panel? it's ITE I believe, and asks for type eqp breaker. They snap in.

my search says that Siemens EQ is the same breaker and will fit.

What does the combined intel here say?
Check and se if there is a manufacturer's sticker somewhere that has a model number on it. Either that or have an electrician pull on e out so you can see what model of breaker it is.

That panel appears to have no ground.  Assuming if you were to put a breaker in, you would have a real electricians do it?  The lack of a ground is concerning.

I've worked on those boxes in the past. Wish I could remember the name. The ground bus is behind the shield at the bottom, and you can match the breaker by pulling one out and checking the manufacturer.

Not recommending, but yes it's ITE bought by Siemens. I do believe that the Siemens EQ Breaker will fit. I'm NOT sure however.

There may be many breakers by many different manufacturers that "will fit," but only the breaker bearing the type code specified for the panel will maintain its acceptability to a hard-nosed inspector. Any other breaker may invalidate any UL listing for both the box and the breaker.
