Hey, everybody. Good to have a chance to visit again. Hope everyone is well.

I recently saw a small (16 ckt?) 3 phase (208/120) Challenger panel that looked like it had breaker blanks in position 1,3,5.
Upon removal of the dead front, the "breaker blanks" were actually what appeared to be a 3 pole breaker, with no handles. This is where the feeder connected to this panel.
In other words it was a main lug panel without conventional lugs, but a molded case connection block that appeared to be a breaker without a handle.
Anyone ever see this?

Thanks.

Seen it on a 30 ckt.3ph. 125A. Challenger panel too,makes it easy to choose main lug or main breaker.

Challenger = Garbage.

Yes, we have them at work. We carry a few ITE brands. They're main lug kits plug in style. The ones we carry are rated for 125 amps. It's a rare seller but in some cases where a main breaker panel is changed to a sub panel they simple plug it in and fuse it at the main panel.

Thanks, guys.
A plug-on main lug kit.
Never seen one before this,but I did a 'net search and saw an image of one. That is indeed what it was.

I appreciate the help.
