It feels like your electrician desires to deploy an additional sub-panel for the 30 amp breaker? You mention "every other committed box". Is that correct?. 2. The existing sub-panel box for the unit has the distance to deal with a three- amp double pole breaker however that box is about 20 feet away, thru walls from the first field and that is wherein we need the dryer. So he changed into going to feed it immediately off the unique container that receives the electricity proper after the meter.
In keeping with your query, each of the 6 apartments has an person 60 amp important box servicing like 6 15 amp sub-packing containers for each condo. So all within the most important utilitiy room there are 7 meters - going to 7 - double gang linked 60 amp breakers - going to love 6-eight 15 amp sub-boxes.

Name is ***** ***** i might be glad to assist you along with your electrical query. My purpose is to exceed your expectancies on simply solution! The country wide electrical code on the grounds that 1996, all new dryer circuits are required to be stressed the usage of 4 conductors..... Ie..... 2 hots, 1 impartial and 1 system grounding conductor. The most effective exception is that if putting in emt or rigid metallic conduit, then no separate device ground is needed for the reason that steel conduit acts as the equipment ground. In your software, you'll require 1/2" bendy metal conduit (greenfield) with a bare copper floor. This will offer you with a black and a red for the two hots, a white for the neutral and a naked copper for the gadget floor. The black and red will each land on the 30 amp double pole breaker. No want to install 10/3 romex inner an armor, that may be a waste of time and money. Just use greenfield with separate type thhn conductors and you're completed with it. Half of" emt conduit also can be used in lieu of the half" greenfield. In my view, i might use half" emt than greenfield.... Emt makes a nicer look. 2) you'll additionally require a four prong nema 14-30r receptacle and a nema 14-30p plug. 3) if the panelboard for the 30 amp breaker will be a sub-panel and now not the principle electric panel, the white neutral will land at the sub-panel neutral bus bar and the bare copper equipment ground desires to land on a separate system grounding bar within the sub-panel. 4) if installing a sub-panel, this also requires a 4 cord feeder circuit the usage of 2 hots, 1 impartial and 1 device ground. 6 awg copper for the 2 hots and 1 impartial and (1) one 10 awg copper for the equipment floor. On the sub, the neutral have to be remoted from the panel's steel enclosure. This indicates at a sub you do not set up the green foremost bonding jumper screw or a copper bonding strap. Important observe: ! Permit me understand what number of amp service your predominant electric panel is? Four) on the dryer wire connection, there could be 4 separate screw terminals to land the wire. Your connection might be the 4 wire hookup kind. Discuss with the % shown beneath:.
