Hey All,

I was just wondering what input was in regards to breaker sizing for march pumps and BCS 460. I was thinking about either 4 or 6 amp breakers. Im going to be using mini din.

If i can find reasonable priced b curve i will.. but c curve are much easier to find at a decent price.

Thanks,

Specs I've seen show the March pump listed as 1.4 amps. BCS would likely be less than .5 amp depending on accessory loading.
