I am not an electrician, but just want to verify something that an electrician is doing for us. When the pannelboard, in this case a Simions P1, says "Max 250 Amps", does this mean each phase, or total? Thanks, Kyle

I have a lot more questions but have to go to school now. Ill be back tonight and go into a lot more detail. Thanks

Kyle, that would be 250 Amps on each phase.
