I am re-wiring some areas of my new home to install new outlets, receptacles, and replace some fun (by fun I mean terrifying & dangerous) wiring that was installed since the house was built in the 70s.
My main panel in the basement is an ITE EQ Load center and I am really looking for any current (or at least more recent) parts (or a current panel model number to look myself) that would be compatible to partly refurbish/clean up the panel. Sure, I could replace the whole panel, but I feel like I have a piece of living history and kinda want to preserve it while making it safe and neat if possible.
I already know that the ITE EQ-P breakers this panel references essentially evolved into the Siemens QP line (thanks to this question) and have already replaced all breakers.
Here's all the info I know:
ITE was purchased by Gould in 1976 and then Gould was purchased by Siemens in 1983. The panel is an ITE EQ Load Center with a model number of EQ28MBA.
- 120/240 Volt A.C.
- Single Phase
- 3 Wire
- Max rating of 150 Amps
- 150 Amps Main Breaker
- 28 Slots
- EQ-P or EQ-T breaker type (Siemens QP Line)
- Patent 3349292 (Click Here to view Patent Documents)
- Panel Cover has UL Listed sticker with Issue #: H-858
- Panelboard has UL Listed sticker referencing CLASS-CTL and # AT331025
- Cabinet Box has UL Listed sticker with Issue # M-25
Any help in locating new compatible parts or an equivalent model number from Siemens would be fantastic!
