This is sort of a residential question. House has been converted to a theatre. I have been asked to relocate the lighting dimmer packs. Each pack is on a separate 50 amp breaker. I did some quick math and am now becoming worried.
These dimmer packs are 6 channels capable of 2400 watts per channel. If I do the math the entire pack is capable of 14,400 watts. If my calculations are correct, these should each be on an 80amp breaker.
14,400 watts / 240 v = 60 amps. Using the 80% rule, 60amps is 80% of 75, therefore the breakers whould be 80amp (double pole 40amp)
Just need someone to validate my thought processes here.
