    The reminds me of the way the wired the opld 120\240 1ph 3w appliances where they used 3 conductor sharing the neutral and ground. On the surface it seems OK since the neutral is grounded. But at the...

    If I was the owner of the facility and there was no possibility of a plug voltage mismatch I would see no issue with applying a twistlock at a voltage other than that of the twistlock rating.

    Regarding the second and third pictures I personally would have rrun the NM up through a stub of conduit to protect the NM from being damaged by items that may be placed in the cabinet.

    If you already have a set of twist locks that have been aquired at lottle or no cost then purchasing more is extremely expensive. It doesn't t take a rocket scientist to realize that to purchase the...

    Is the breaker in question rated as current limiting? If not I fail to see where the available fault current would be any different at the line or load side. With a CL breaker it would only limit...

    This is how I would approach it.
    Since the lights are essentially in a series circuit there must be an opening in that circuit. I would also assume that there is more than 1 cuit of lights such that...

    A string of light, every other light? What do you mean a half of the lights? The facility should have a schematic/wiring diagram of the lighting shouldn't they?

    I know that the OP's post is with reference to a residential application but 100% rated devices were brought up and needs to be clarified.
    The 100% rule is often hard to understand. It should only...

    No. The secondary OCPD does two things, if the transformer is sized to supply the load then the wire is also sized to carry the load but the ewecould be larger. Then the OCPD is sized toprotect the...

    I see the 85° and sunny. What are you trying to do rub it in? Right now it's -4° here on its way down to -10°. And to add to that the packers lost.

    If the long time is capable of being field adjustable up to 800a then the cable must be rated at lease 800a.

    If the lugs aren't listed for the multiple wire there is a code violation for sure whether it is believed there is a good connection or not.

    No, I wasn't over thinking this as it is very common for one to get tunnel vision. My point being that there all too many that think that this is an exact science, that is simply black and white,...

    Yes, to my point. The only way that I can think of is if you used #10 wire to supply a load where #14 would be allowed after adjustment and correction and protected by a 15at breaker. Then assuming...

    To add one more thing, remember that the breaker is calibrated at 40degC. Dealers are often located in 25 degC or even less ambient temperature which essentially moves the trip curve to the right....

    These discussions have always intrigued me. It's like getting the cart before the horse. Start with the load, the wire is sized to carry the load. Isn't the the wire sized based upon 125% of the...
