I don't understand how 422.32 interplays with 422.31:
422.32 Disconnecting Means for Motor-Driven Appliance.
If a switch or circuit breaker serves as the disconnecting
means for a permanently connected motor-driven appliance
of more than 1⁄8 hp, it shall be located within sight
from the motor controller and shall comply with Part IX of
It appears that 422.31 giveth, and 422.32 taketh away, with the question of whether you can use a LOTO circuit breaker that's not in line-of-sight as the disconnection means.
Does anyone here have any insight into this apparent discrepency?
