Issue:
Customer is looking at a pump panel for a 30HP 480V motor.  He shows that a pump panel is calling for a size 2, but the Motor Data Calculator shows a size 3 starter should be used.  Which is correct? 

Product Line:
Contactors and Starters.

Environment:
Products sold in the United States.

Cause:
Selection.

Resolution:
Pump panels are specifically designed for pumping application by Square D. They are horsepower rated, not NEMA Rated. Therefore, there may be inconsistencies between the starter that is used in an 8940 versus what size 8536 the Motor Data Calculator would predict should be used.
