    No. I'm understanding an overhead run of busway above a factory floor that has been there long before the particular piece of equipment arrived.

    There is an existing drop, RATED at 30 Amps, from the busway, in the area of the new piece of equipment in question.

    The Over Current Circuit Protection, probably fuses, has been changed to 5 Amp, to protect the piece of equipment, and the branch circuit left otherwise unchanged.
