A couple more sub panel questions
This is a sanity check, just to make sure I am not being led astray. I am wiring a 100 amp sub panel, and using #2 aluminum from my main panel.
So I have 2 wires attached to the breaker. Do I have to Anox them?
The other two wires need to be ground and neutral, but in the panel those are combined so they have merely to be lugged into something ground in the panel. That could be either bar, or and here is where the question comes in, the panel box itself. (so says the inspector)
I went to the electrical supply and they sold me something that looked like this:
I Anoxed the back of it, drilled and tapped a hole in the panel box and screwed the heck out of it. I then Anoxed the wires put them in it and screwed them down as tight as my little hands could.
Is this actually a correct solution? Do I also need to use a torque wrench to set these things to some particular ft/lbs or something?
For the other panel, since it has a breaker to connect two wires to, and a lug to connect into one bar that is isolated from the ground then the other large wire coming in will also be lugged directly to the panel box with something that looks like this:
I have not done that part yet, since I ran out of daylight tonight. I just want to make sure I am not doing something stupid or dangerous. It just sounds funny, in that 'too easy' sort of way.
