Does Square D offer a 1600A main breaker panelboard?

Issue:
Maximum ampere rating of panelboard offer

Product Line:
Panelboards

Environment:
UL, NEMA

Cause:
When a system's total ampere requirements increase, it is important to consider the implications for the equipment necessary to serve those new requirements.

Resolution:

No, Square D does not offer a 1600A rated main breaker panelboard.  A free-standing switchboard-type construction (QED) would have to be provided at 1600A.  The maximum ampacity panelboard Square D offers is 1200A.
