PSAC knockout panel replacement

Post by drstrip »

The knockouts on the right side of the PSAC are formed in a panel that is screwed to the side of the PSAC. I've replaced my FX3624s and now have large open holes. Where can I find a replacement panel?

You may not need to replace the panel if properly sized knockout plugs are installed in the holes: https://stimpson.com/hole-plugs/electri ... kout-plugs

Not sure why I didn't think of that. I've used knockout plugs other places - guess maybe I thought these were non-standard hole sizes. They are slightly oversized for 2" conduit (2.45 vs 2.416), but since Home Depot has the plugs, I'll give it a try next time I'm in town to buy one. Might have to paint them green, though. :grin:
