No. Of circuits

  1. May 22, 2012 #1
    As you all know the NEC code permits only 42 circuits per panel. so what we could do if we need more than 42 circuits ? In order to use more than 42 circuits we can add new section panel. However my question is do we need a separate feeder and breaker for the additional section?

    Is this an academic question?
    If you are doing actual wiring you should not be seeking answers to to these kinds of questions here. For one thing many local codes override NEC codes. We do not even know what country you are in. Your best bet is to hire someone who is familiar with code requirements in your area. Alternatively you can contact your local licensing/permitting office and speak with an inspector. They are generally very helpful, and are the ones who will ultimately be approving the work.
