Hello, I have a question on circuit breaker size for maximum nameplate ratings.  If I have a product with a user selectable current setting between 30A - 100A, I would like to set the amperage to 50A on the device.

My main question is, if I intend to only use the appliance at 50A and select that on the product itself  as well as wire it to a 50A circuit, am I breaking any code violations by not installing the product on a 100A circuit (maximum nameplate rating of the product)?  Product is a non-continuous device.  I have heard in some locations that it is required to be installed on a circuit representing the max nameplate rating, however, I believe those may just be local codes for that specific geographic location.  Thank you!
