I'm confused about the power available to me by looking in this breaker box. I'm thinking of leasing this space, which is an office/retail shop.
Wall outlets have both 120 and 240 volt outlets. Owner does not know if 240 wrks but assumes it does. Breaker box has 2 breakers that say "30" on them, and below that two areas that say 10 kA 120/240V.
I've been reading about "double pole", and I don't think this is since it would have one bar going across both breakers. Does this look like 2 separate 30 amp circuits at 120v (totaling 60 amps @ 120v), but if you use a 240v outlet, it would be the equivalent of 30 amps because the two combine? (Or 15 amps each circuit?) What is the yellow bar at the bottom?
When it reads 30 amps per circuit, I've read that really means maybe 24 amps are available. Does this mean I can't plug in something that says it requires 30 amps?
I have a piece of equipment (forced air tunnel dryer) I may want to purchase in the future, and the requirements are single phase 1750 Watt 30 amp 240 volt. Would this work on this system? And if so, would that mean I can't plug anything else in?
Currently I have two heat presses, each need 1750 watts 15-20 amps 120 volt. Can I plug both of these in the system? I would assume yes, and I might have a small amount left over for other things.
The owner unfortunately is no help, and I'm trying to figure out this all myself. Thanks for your help in advance!
