    Default Distribution Panel

    There was a 600 service and this panel had three 200amp breakers. But my question is regarding the penetration into the lower left of the panel, it appears to be a get er done type of installatoin. Is it acceptable.

    Mat,

    Just to clarify your title - that is a distribution panel and not the service equipment, right?

    If so, then am I correct to presume that the 200 amp breakers feed other distribution panels?

    That is a (should be a) cable clamp and someone knocked out a small 1/2" knock out when cutting in the larger knock out. It looks like a cable clamp, so that would be okay (other than the opening left behind).

    That smaller, missing, knock out opening now needs to be covered.

    The question that I have and do not see in those photo is: Where are those larger neutrals for those feeders attached to at the neutral terminal bus? Are there that many large terminals present for those three large neutral conductors?

    I see where they are connected, but cannot tell if the terminals they are in are the proper sized ones - especially the one hanging off the neutral terminal bus.

    I thought the same thing at first. Then I found them.

    I see one terminating from the bottom, to the right.
    Then I see two coming in at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock.

    The one from the bottom looks suspect to me. Looks like an add-on lug.

    I saw those, but still concerned about their sizes, however, mainly the add-on lug is what my question was about.

    This is what I said about them:
