It appears they used either a 201 to 400 amp or 600amp fuse block in that panel during the OEM build. I have no clue as to the use of 125 amp fuses on a 60 amp incoming circuit. The new fuse blocks will be 200 amp rated and will fit those 125s they have.

They are insisting on a phase loss monitor. Allen Bradley has one for just about $125 including the relay base. Ill have it open that small contactor. Also, the 3 phase TVSS they need is close to a grand. That sucker is going to take up 3 precious spaces in their MDP.

They have been having some voltage sags. I installed a recorder on another disconnect feeding a 125 p compressor that was shutting down due to sag on one of the legs. I set it up to reference the neutral to try and capture it along with phase to phase amperage and voltage to see if the load had anything to do with the sag. It appears to be plant wide.

I seem to be wasting wayy too much time with these people. I am going to let them know I need a day in each panel and about $1,000
To me this kind of thing is a great project not a waste of time, but if you use flat rate pricing model you use for less head scratching jobs, you're going to take a bath.

Agreed. It is interesting and the materials are cheap but, there are so many obstacles to getting in an out on these kinds of little projects. One good thing about this customer is that they pay on 10 days as a direct deposit and we are an exclusive vendor.

What a world of wimps we are becoming. That setup is perfectly safe for any qualified personnel. Slap a stickerOn it that says qualified personnel only and you’re good to go. Or maybe a sticker that says no idiots
