MCC spares (starters) installation in existing modules

I am looking to add on additional loads to an existing platform MCC’s spares, but the available spaces are almost full. What options do I have? Thanks.

Of course you do not want to overuse the small remaining MCC's spares. Plus the available spaces may not be enought for your new additions anyway. You may want to consider:

  1. Just few installed spares (available in the current Module’s MCCs) are used
  2. Install some additional starters and feeder breakers in the available (empty) spaces
  3. Install some additional new vertical sections (line-ups)
