if i have a 208v 3phase 200amp panel (MLO) and that panel (located in room a) is unable to accept a 3pole 125amps for a subpanel on a different room (room b), can i use the 10 ft tap rule on the 200amp lugs and put an external 3 pole 125amp breaker beside it to feed the 125amp panel in room b? thanks

Assuming you met all the requirements of the tap rules and used a compliant method to do the tap, then yes.
What this guy said. Though I will add, as long as the additional load can be carried by the existing feeder/service in the first place. Only way to know that is to do a load calculation.

You're joking right?

You really need to fill out your profile.

I just hope you are joking on this one .,,

just look up the posting above me for legit answer and the tap rules do come in two flavors for indoor set up.

and please fill the profile if you are a legit electrician or EC .,,


Also I will keep this open for 24 hours and if I dont hear ya in 24 hours it will be LOTO.,,
