    Actually 210.52(B)(1) requires them to be on one of the two or more small appliance branch circuits, but Exception #2 says they can be on an individual branch circuit rated 15 amps or more.

    If the supply side of the switch is connected to a double pole breaker, the switch is only switching a single circuit, even if it switches two different loads and that, in my opinion, is permitted. ...

    If you really need to minimize the thermal transfer between the hot and cold sides, I would look at something that is less thermally conductive than rigid conduit. Maybe PVC conduit through the...

    Are you really looking to come up with a fault current, or the short circuit current rating for the control panel? In general control panels must be marked with their short circuit current rating.

    The amount of current flow on any circuit is a function of the voltage and impedance of the circuit, and in the case of a fault, also a function of the available fault current at the supply end of...

    Just be careful as to the breaker type if you are tying to convert a spare starter bucket to a feeder. Many MCC starters have MCPs and not standard breakers. MCPs cannot be used as feeder breakers....

    That doesn't tell you that the EGC is sized per the code rules. A 100' of #18 would be that resistance range.

    In the example in this thread, the #10s would be a feeder and the #12s the branch circuit. The #10s have 30 amp protection, so the 20 amp fuses are the branch circuit protection for the #12s.

    It is my opinion that both the fuse and the fuse holder have to be listed as suitable for use as branch circuit protection, not just the fuse itself.

    Most inline fuse holders are listed for use only as supplementary protection. You would need a fuse and fuse holder listed for use as branch circuit protection if you wanted to do this.

    What provision of the code permits the use of that device? In, my opinion, the fact that the device is not listed in 250.118 prohibits the use of it.

    I strongly doubt that changing the transformer had anything to do with the change in the current on the EGC.
