I am writing this question because of how this combination Load Center didn't pass through Inspection with my local electric utility due to the manufacturer's inconsistency in marking and labeling. Let me explain.
The 150A load center shares the same body as the 200A model made by this particular manufacturer. On the body itself the load center is listed at 200A, however, the permanent / factory installed main breaker is rated at 150A as the serial number and description also agree with. Because the main breaker and serial number say 150A and because this is what I pulled a permit for, I sized the overhead conduit and wiring to 1.5 in. diameter, which is appropriate as per their specs. The utility inspector saw the 200A rating on the body of the box and failed the inspection stating that the conduit should be 2 in. diameter. This means I have to buy entirely new hardware and copper wiring throughout, and re-do everything costing me easily $300 and setting construction back two weeks. This is all the result of a typo or economized factory specs. City and utility inspectors can't even agree on this and I'm stuck with a residential construction site with no electricity.
So what gives, which inspector is right?
