MCC Breaker Handle Height

I understand that 240.24 requires the handle for the overcurrent device to be 6'7", but does that apply to a MCC?

MCC has a main breaker that is below 6'7". Each load fed from the MCC has a disconnect at the load.


Thanks,

Why wouldn't it apply to an MCC...unless the device in question wasn't an over current device.

Also, I think thats the max. height mean that it has to be less than that. I think you might also need to take into consideration that the handle would be up when on (and higher) and the equipment may be on a housekeeping pad, or curb, again raising it higher.

Sounds like you're good to go then.
 
I was wondering, since it had a main that shut down all the breakers, did the individual breakers need to meet the 6'7"?
