Re: What panels do you guys like

Mine would be the Thorn/Autocall TFX & CL series panels which were the panel of choice for much of Volusia County in the 80s-early 2000s. Also the newer EST3X and Simplex 4100ES panels are a fav of mine.

Re: Why does the 4050 80 no longer meet building codes?

I don't see why most devices would have to be replaced if they needed to replace the panel and they were for the most part ADA-compliant. My high school when I first went there had a Simplex 4020 panel which during the end of my sophomore year, was replaced with a Simplex 4100U panel. None of the a...
