Perfect Wire Size 50, Sub Panel Ideas - The panel is rated to help one hundred twenty five amperes, when connected to a a hundred and twenty/240 volt 3 twine device. Which means that 125 amperes can waft thru each of the upper bus bars and every main lug, without whatever melting or catching fire. The circuit breaker is rated at one hundred twenty five a, in line with its label. It is a "break up-bus" panel. It is presently configured to have 3 "foremost" breakers (this is, you need to flip three things to show off your electricity) which can be stressed in parallel. Counting the used electricity is a bit bit elaborate because you must perform the rely for every leg for my part: you can have as much as 125 a on l1 and every other a hundred twenty five a on l2. I rely one hundred thirty a on every: 50a 50a 30 a double pole breakers.
This need to be a definitely antique box due to the fact i see a 50 amp breaker and a 30 amp breaker i d and main breaker on the top and major breaker on the pinnacle. This box ought to be a from the overdue from the past due sixties. Or early nineteen seventies however because you're changing the box you'd be higher off with a square d. 200 amp field simply observed this post taylor i reply to it like a country is in the backside. You only have a 50 in a 30 which makes makes a complete of eighty amps. If you had been to turn the whole thing on at once, your load can't exceed 30,000 watts (30kw). If a load is on for extra than three hours you ought to length the breaker for eighty of the continuous load. So if this panel have been to most effective serve lights, heating, or cooling your max draw should most effective be 24,000 watts (24kw) (100a).
Depending at the service provided to the building, upgrading the panel may additionally encompass an upgrade to the carrier. Installing a new 125a panel is useless, in case you do not additionally have the carrier upgraded to support 125 amperes. So my advice is a subpanel. The labeling says the most important branch circuit breaker you could use is 70a, so ok. Fit a 70a breaker in whichever position you could spare, either 1, 2, 3-4-5-6, (or 4-five if you could discover a double-stuff thqp270). Feed that over to a brand new subpanel. You're welcome to use every other ge qline panel if you decide upon.
