The information contained in the manual is intended to assist panel builders. The typical circuit diagrams and interpretations of standards are not binding and do not claim to be complete regarding configuration, equipment or any other eventuality

The typical circuit diagrams and interpretations of standards do not represent specific customer solutions, but are only intended to provide support when it comes to typical applications.

You are responsible for ensuring that the products described are used correctly. The typical circuit diagrams and interpretations of standards do not relieve you of your responsibility to ensure safe handling when using, installing operating and maintaining the equipment.

When writing these guidelines, a lot of tables and texts were taken straight from the NEC 2008 or UL standards. All users must always check whether the items quoted are still up to date or not.

    Hello to the creator of you and me. Hello brother, I am calling you from Iran, my foreign language is not very strong, sorry if there are any mistakes. I have two citizenships, my father is Afghani, my mother is Iranian. Now, I am a manufacturer of industrial machines and industrial electrical panels, and I have patented several devices. Here is a machine shop and industrial electrical panels such as plc.inverter. I am working professionally. I am not satisfied with my work and income here. I would like to travel to your country. If you need young people, I would like to join you. If you want, send a message or call to discuss your work. I will send it to you. Thank you

    Hello, I have a question. In our industrial enclosure, typically from our main circuit breaker we run to a power distribution block and start our tap conductors to our various circuits. This is straight forward tap rule.
    When using a MCB with multiple secondary lugs, when we have a large single load, to run from one of the lugs to a CB for a large VFD (for example), and from the other lugs to a power distribution block (reduced in size but sized per loads) to then tapped from there (distribution block) for the smaller circuits. Since we have split at the wiring from the MCB, is the taps below the distribution block considered a tap of tap hence illegal?
