Is it possible to run a second Echo Relay Panel Mains Feed off of the first one
I would like to install a second ERP-Mains Feed panel on a site that already has one installed.
While doing so, I would like to run power from the existing panel into the second one.
In the Datasheet for the ERP, it describes the following under the Electrical section on Page 2:
"Branch breaker panel supports three-phase and bi-phase subfeed of a second panel up to 100 A"
It is possible to run a second panel off of the first by doing the following:
- Install a 3-Pole 100 Amp Breaker in the spare right spot of the ERP
- Run this feed over to your new second panel to power it
Because you will be feeding the panel with only a 100A non-magnetic driven breaker, you will only be operating at 80% capacity. Keep in mind this will lower the amount of loads you will be able to run off the second panel.
