The panel I was initially talking about was the ones we used to see that had main lugs that fed 12 poles which if you installed six 2 pole breakers you have your allowed service disconnecting means. One of those 2 pole breakers served as the lighting main for the second bus section in the panel. The panel only has one supply but is split possibly six ways.This can not be the typical split bus panel we have seen in past where there is one set of main lugs that is supplying two separate sections of bus. It is describing a panel with multiple feeders supplying it. I can not recall ever seeing such an animal.
Better late than never, and your input helps regardless?unless it?s a repeat:slaphead:I know that Lighting and appliance panels were limited to 42 poles, but Power panels were allow more that 42 poles. I thought this changed in the 2008 code, not 2011.
Sorry guys, I'm late.
Neither!! It?s what I said: It?s better to give your input, rather than not. Which means?in this case: It may help us better understand the topic. Never having another view on the topic would mean we would never know if we covered all our basis??unless it?s a reapt of what someone else said.Not sure how I would interpret that post.
Did you thank her, insult her, or make a joke I did not get?
So John, a friend across town came across a QO panel, 40 space, with 3 tandems, bringing up to 43 circuits. Under old rules, it exceeded by one, correct? Under new rules, is it OK in your opinion?Remember that you were never really limited before except in a lighting and appliance panel.
Not okay simply because the panel was not designed to be used for more than 40 circuits. It is a violation of the listing-- 110.3(B)So John, a friend across town came across a QO panel, 40 space, with 3 tandems, bringing up to 43 circuits. Under old rules, it exceeded by one, correct?
