How do you describe this system… 200 Amp service to house. Main panel had no single shutoff. Cutler Hammer panel (pic included). One of the 60 amp breakers did shut off the circuits in the home, but the other large breakers were servicing the HVAC, Subpanel in garage, etc.
Is this a "spit bus?
Would this still be considered a 200 AMP service, or would you consider it a 100 AMP, or since the shutoff is 60, a 60 AMP service?
Looks like a distribution panel with what looks like a 4 wire circuit, but what is the conductor looping up in the bottom, looks like it is being fed from the third breaker from the top on the left? Have you a pic of the meter, is there a disconnect out there? also a double tap on the fourth beaker. Got more pics, you cna never have too many pics
Typical split bus panel. The bottom portion of the panel is supplied by that 3rd 60amp breaker. Two conductors from the breaker, one to each of the lower bus bars. Feeds the lighting and outlets. All the big items requiring 220/240 are fed using the other 5 top breakers. Oven/Stove, AC, furnace, Sub Panel, Dryer. (usually what we find up here, there could be regional differences)
