i recently took an examination in texas and one of the questions on the test has me baffled. what is the maximum ampacity rating for a hermatic refigerant motor branch circuit against ground fault? no other specs were included. my choices were 25 30 35 40.any help greatly appreciated. thanks
Originally posted by Gfretwell Using "test taking" logic I would go for 35a since it is the only one that is divisible by 7. 440.22(A)"..."a protective device having a rating or setting not exceeding 175 <seven quarters> percent of the motor-compressor rated-load current..." I bet there was a 5hp motor in there somewhere. (20aFLA)
Would this be the same thing as 14 bits?
