    Feeding Control Panel

    Panel feeding control panel is in sigh as note says. I don't need disconnect per code but not sure why it says overcurrent device in control cabinet. Shouldn't the OCPD in the panel feeding the control panel be sufficient?

    Aslo would I need a neutral to feed the control panel? Thanks

    Yes I did...not sure why they say OCPD in control cabinet. Was thinking there would only be one in panel feeding control cabinet.

    They do not want multiple disconnects as in three single poles vs one three pole.

    Are there line to neutral loads in the control panel? No, then no. An equipment ground? yes.

    I see it there is likely supplemental overcurrent protection within in your control panel. They are mostly telling you you don't need the local disconnect if the branch circuit device is within sight, which is what code would require anyway.
