I am trying to figure out how many disconnects can a GE distribution panelboard have. Does the rule of 6 applies to the distribution panelboard inside the building too. Article 230 does mention about no more than 6 disconnect for a service entrance. The panelboard in questions is a 250A MLO, 480V, 3ph (name: DP-44). It is being fed from a 250A circuit breaker about 125'-150' away. Another 250A MLO, 480V, 3ph panelboard (DP-44A) is lugged to it (DP-44). Can this panelboard (DP-44) have more than 6 disconnect switches.
