    Elevator Main Disconnect

    I am adding some lights and GFI's on an elevator shaft due to motor controller upgrade. The elevator inspector is asking me to change the existing disconnect which is a 3 phase fusible 240 volts disconnect to a Heavy Duty one. Any one heard about this requirement? Motor is 7 1/2 HP and will be reuse. Label amps says 20.5 @ 208 volts
