if it abides by the tap rules it is probably OK with the 800 A CB in the remote panel. If the 1200 A breaker is actually a 1200 A frame breaker with an 800 Amp plug, it is probably OK without a main breaker in the 800 A panel.Panel being fed had 800A main breaker.
I think 250AF is the plug rating and 400A is the frame size. probably just a typo. AF should maybe be AT.Didn't want to start another thread but here's another. Seems to be a lot of mistakes by engineer.
show 250A frame breaker with 400A "rating" I guess. The actual breaker "rating" can''t be larger than the frame size can it?
Also this is feeding a 260A ATS with 4# 250 mcm which is only good for 255A.
I's think you need bigger breaker and feeder( maybe #300).?
It's still used in some breakers.Short answer "yes".
"Rating plug", I fear, shows my age
For many years, before electronic trip, larger breakers had interchangeable rating plugs to set the current rating.
Lazy electricians always do those: if a breaker trips, rather than running thru the wiring path, they just crank the adjustable trip setting up! Easy-peasy as the Brits say!It's still used in some breakers.
In this one, the "rating plug" is the small box on the lower right with the white label.
Looks like this up close;
So you bought a breaker in a "Frame" size, like in this case a 125AF, and by installing a 70A "rating plug" you made it a 70A amp trip (70AT) breaker. The issue is/was that UL did not like the idea of adjustable trip circuit breakers because of the potential inaccuracy of the dial setting and/or the likelihood of Joe Bubba maintenance guy doing a "crank 'er up" on it when it trips rather than find out why. The rating plug was pre-calibrated and made it a more deliberate and traceable act to change it (in theory).
