    Default Pushmatic questons

    I've seen plenty of "standard" Pushmatics, but this bus arrangement is new to me and I want to make sure I understand and report it properly.

    Is appears to me that what we have here is two separate 100A 240V buses, with each "section" controlled by the 100A breaker at the top of the buss (a sort of "split buss" equipment, as it were).

    However as I can't see the entire mechanical arrangement of the buss bars and their connections to the SEC's I'm not 100% certain.

    Is anyone here familiar with this panel?

    Hello Michael,

    Your assessment is correct. This is a 200 amp service with a left and right side, each side with its own 100 amp breaker.

    There are a lot of these in the Chicago area. I can't remember for certain but it may be under the old Bulldog name.

    Sincerely,

    Corey
