    Lighting panelboards: small but powerful

    There are two broad categories of panelboards: lighting and appliance panelboards, and power distribution panelboards. Lighting panelboards are essentially smaller power distribution panelboards. Still used throughout commercial and industrial lighting systems, lighting panelboards utilize bolt-on breakers and are usually rated between 200A and 800A. They are highly configurable to meet your application’s specific needs and requirements. Whether you’re looking for a main breaker or a main lug panelboard, lighting panelboards are field convertible so they can be changed from main breaker to main lug and vice versa. Available in a variety of sizes and configurations, lighting panelboards allow for multi-pole circuit arrangements and are fit to control all types of lighting systems from warehouses to commercial businesses and more.

    Defining a lighting panelboard

    How do you differentiate a lighting panelboard from a power distribution panelboard? In order to qualify as a lighting panelboard, it must have at least 10% or more of the breakers and fuses protecting lighting and appliance branch circuits. In other words, at least 10% or more of the circuit protection devices in the panelboard are rated at 30A or less. Lighting panelboards only allow for 42 circuits, and once that limit is exceeded, you’ll need two (or more) panelboards. It’s important to note the distinction between circuits and devices, meaning that a single 2-pole circuit breaker, though one device, counts as 2 circuits.

    An important detail to note, however, is that this strict definition has since been removed from the NEC in 2008, and while there is no longer a textbook distinction between lighting and power distribution panels, these features and differences are still used colloquially to help categorize panelboards.
