I did my own and they are way different then what they had. I tried to post the schedule, but it won&#39;t let me. The calculation should be simple, since it&#39;s heat trace, so the load is known.</span></p> <p><span>If there is a way to post the existing panel schedule, please let me know. As that would make it way easier&nbsp;to explain.</span></p> <p><span>Thank you in advance</span></p> </div> http://ecmweb.com/forums/general/electrical-talk-pics-videos/heat-trace-panel-calculation#comments Electrical Talk Pics & Videos Thu, 19 May 2016 05:17:01 +0000 135921 at http://ecmweb.com What's wrong in this photo? http://ecmweb.com/forums/general/electrical-talk-pics-videos/whats-wrong-photo <div class="node-body forum-body"><p>&nbsp;Anyone care to comment on this installation?</p> <p>(Click on the link below to view the photo.)</p> </div> http://ecmweb.com/forums/general/electrical-talk-pics-videos/whats-wrong-photo#comments Electrical Talk Pics & Videos Wed, 11 May 2016 15:49:51 +0000 135531 at http://ecmweb.com Generator Grounding http://ecmweb.com/forums/general/electrical-talk-pics-videos/generator-grounding <div class="node-body forum-body"><p>Proper Generator Grounding?</p> </div> http://ecmweb.com/forums/general/electrical-talk-pics-videos/generator-grounding#comments Electrical Talk Pics & Videos Fri, 04 Dec 2015 11:52:28 +0000 130191 at http://ecmweb.com Just when you think you've seen it all! http://ecmweb.com/forums/general/electrical-talk-pics-videos/just-when-you-think-youve-seen-it-all <div class="node-body forum-body"><p>A number of years ago, I was called in to rewire the house of a good friend whose husband had recently passed away. She wanted to use the insurance to upgrade the electrical in her house because, despite the fact that her late husband had been an electrician on the railroad, this was the nightmare I encountered. Here are &quot;before&quot; and after pictures. I only wish the copper scrap was paying as well back then as it is today!
