Also be aware that 6-206 requires that there be at least 2m of headroom where the panelboard is installed.
Thanks for the quick reply Homer!
Does this mean that I can lower my 100amp federal Pioneer stablok panel lower thin the 5 fett I have now.
If I measure from the cement floor to the bottom of the panel is is about 2.5 feet. Can I make it lower
As for the head room! The ceiling height is 9' so the head room is fine.
My big conern is the lod conductors and installing them. If Ii lower the panel it will be about 3.5' rom the floor to bottom of panel.
Again thank you for all your help on this.
