GFCI circuit breakers
Single pole and double pole GFCI is same as ordinary breaker, and will trip when amperage or heat on the wire exceeds amp rating of breaker. However, heat on the wire will NOT trip breaker immediately, and cannot protect people from electrocution. The GFCI protects from electrocution by immediately tripping when number of electrons flowing on one wire is different from electrons flowing on the other wire.
White wire must connect to Neutral busbar.
Avoid double GFCI protection on same circuit.
Unlke breakers and fuses that can be added at any point along same wire, multiple GFCI or AFCI on same wire can cause tripping.
This means, if the circuit breaker that supplies power to the Intermatic control center is a GFCI or AFCI, then do not add GFCI or AFCI in the control center.

how to bond control panel
Larger image
Control panel should be bonded to ground wire that is connected to ground rod driven to correct depth to meet local soil conditions/ refer to local codes for bonding and grounding.

Test ground with contuinity tester. Test should reveal zero ohms, or fully open pathway for electrons to reach ground with no resistance.

120Volt and 240Volt breakers
Image shows 120Volt line and 240volt line.
Both circuits have ground wire.
Each 120 and 240 require two wires to complete circuit.
120V requires 1 hot and 1 neutral
240V requires 2 hots
Ground wires are for safety.
Read more about 240 volt

Some 240Volt lines have additional neutral wire. However, neutral not necessary to complete 240Volt circuit.
Some 240Volt lines have white and black instead of red and black

Most service boxes today have separate Neutral and Ground busbars, but these busbars are bonded together electrically, and are the same.
Illustration on left shows both Neutrals and Grounds on same side of box. In actual box, the Neutral is on right side and ground on left. Illustration shows separated neutral and ground so it is easier to illustrate wires leaving breakers.
