anbm, I don't understand ' seperate panel with other load ' , but, normally the elevatorIs there a requirement that elevators need to be fed from a separate panel with other load? Thanks!
Typical they are fed from the buildings MDP with shunt trip breakers connected to the fire alarm system. There are no requirements in 620 as to where the normal power comes from.I mean elevator motors can't share same panel with lighting, other hvac, heating, motor load etc.
Many times an elevator may have a shunt trip panel feeding the equipment. Just be carefull not to feed the rooftop smoke hatch off the shunt trip panel . As no power to the hatch will cause it to remain closed.Is there a requirement that elevators need to be fed from a separate panel with other load? Thanks!
