we are actually up to at least 80 circuit panels (40/80 circuit) in Canada, I am surprised to hear they are not distributed in the States. An NEC rule prohibiting that?

Greg,

I don't know how tall those bad boys would be, but from the pictures, they look like they are as big as a tombstone.

I seem to remember 42 being the most ckts you could have in one panel. When you say "it used to" is that what you're referring to? Has that recently changed from the 08 NEC?

The 42 circuit restriction was removed.

Harold:

The 'over 42' circuit panels are 'side-by-side', at least the few that I have seen up close & personal. (SQ D)

jumping in because I have put in some of the 80 circuit combination panels and they can be up to 49 inches high, some a little shorter. Any that I have installed are all lined up in the same enclosure. This can make meeting the code requirements for meterbase, panel and breaker heights a challenge.
