If I have a 60HP 3-phase 208 motor with a RLA 140 amps and a LRC of 1000 amps, do I set a 200-amp service using 1000-amp equipment?

Anyone have any experience with these and can describe what your set-up looked like?

Thanks.

You'll be using 1200 Amp frame equipment.

Go to 695.4 B (1)

Tesla, why do you say 1200 amp? Do you interpret indefinatly to be continuous load? wouldn't that be no smaller than 1250-amp?

I don't know if it was in the specs or if I am recalling this from another site, but I thought the controller was set to only allow locked rotor current for 20 seconds.

Do you guys normally meter these? I have a meeting set up with the utility for sometime this week, so I'll find out what they want, but I'm curious what some have done in the past.
