Selective coordination in elevators

Selective coordination in elevators is required when more than one elevator is supplied by a common feeder.

Figure 2: The graph indicates a 200 amp breaker in the main distribution gear feeding an elevator control panel with a 100 amp and a 70 amp fuse. The study must ensure that the two fuses will trip in a fault condition in any one of the separate elevator fSelective coordination is required when more than one elevator is supplied by a common feeder, per NEC Article 620-62. Figure 2 shows an example of a coordination study illustrating the feeder breaker overcurrent protection, the elevator fuse overcurrent protection, and the elevator motor start-up curves.

excellent.

I suggest for independant supply from diffrent feeders with correct rating
