Classicsat, it is a Cutler-Hammer BR panel,it is too bad they all cannot be that neat, on another note I use very few main breaker panels,and the last one was a SQ D Homeline (yuk [Linked Image] ) and the box was reversable for top or bottom feed, this panels MB operates side to side also, so there would be no reason one could not do so.That would be my only criticism of a fine job.

When I end up troubleshooting on a job like this, yes, I cut the cable ties, but I replace them afterwards,

Funny, I do just the opposite [Linked Image]
I make up new panels using ty-raps, and then when I'm done, I cut them off. Conductors bundled over 24" require derating.

This is a beautiful job !!

Very sharp work. You get a gold star.
Working on military sytems, this is the way that it is supposed/required to be done. That said, many of our techs dont even do this nice of a job.
Be proud.

Not in a panel. [Linked Image]

Derating only applies to raceways or cables.

That aside I do not generally tie wrap in panels either.

Classicsat,

I thought sub-panel at first, but the bonding strap hasn't been removed and the neutral buss is bonded via the green screw and copper jumper.
Apparently it is simply for neatness and it looks good.

Note to renosteinke: Please notice I made no comments about the listing on the clamps. There are no faults with respect to code compliance. There are variations in style and I just compared it to mine. Food for thought, so to speak.

Where is the green bonding screw?

The bonding screw is just above the 5th branch circuit conductor on the right side, just to right of the neutral bundle.

One other thought, other than praise. Does this seperation of the phase conductors and the neutral cause increased EMFs? If it does, is it enough to cause concern?

I seem to remember a class by Mike Holt about this.

Looks great tho!

Another piece of evidence would be what appears to be a GEC entering the bottom left of the enclosure and landing on the ground bar.
