A)No there would be no violation.
Rationale for Rule 28-200.
Because most motors have an inrush current approximately six times the motor full load current, the overcurrent device shall be of sufficient ampacity to avoid nuisance tripping.
Intent for Rule 28-200.
We intend to allow the trip values shown in Table D12, but if fuses are used and the percentage value in Table 29 will not allow the motor to start, this value may be increased. Table 26 reflects the values shown in Table 29 and is a handy guide. Appendix B provides guidance on sizing of the overcurrent protection.
B)Personally, The lower value.
