I bought an Eaton 200A main lugs panel outdoor panel to be fed as the service entrance from the bottom with a subpanel feed out the top feed thru lugs. Eaton states in their lit that: "a standard panel can be rotated 180 degrees to allow straight-in wiring of power cables to the main terminals."

It looks like (see pic) you unscrew and rotate the bus inside, and keep the weather hub on top. Is that correct?
thanks

Thanks for the help. I agree that the knockouts should not be on top because water could leak in that way. I don't understand why they suggest rotating the panel. I couldn't find any better instructions anywhere on the web. A little disappointed in Eaton.

Correction

I need to update this thread.

I started to wire the panel by reversing the guts as stated above. Because I am a DIY guy I got nervous about it. I managed to get an Eaton rep on the phone and asked him about it. He said you can't do that because it was never UL approved for that type installation.

So I rotated the guts back to the original orientation and fed the cables around the sides as shown in the pic. A lot more cable bending and cussing, but now I am UL approved.
