... this is from the same place as the compressor motor. ('Bad Motor Wiring') This was in their electronic engineering department. It seems they like to do their own work.

West-Southern Inner-Northeast ...
The three "stacked" molded-case breakers in the top pic look special. smirk The wire-bending space looks just right for 22AWG.

WOW, True 'wire' ties! [Linked Image]

The three stack box is truly special... Looks like a 'temporary' setup that grew out of control. Is this thing growing receptacles along the left hand side? It appears to be a 110/220v outlet strip along with a convienent place to double lug an extra cord when the cover is removed.

Creative engineering, fun and entertaining!

Actually, this began life as a pretty good installation. There are 3 30A 3Poles feeding 3 30A receptacles there on the side.
A 100A Main C/B is in a separate enclosure (unseen) above...but... [Linked Image]...S

I like the wire color change from line to load side...kind of lends an artistic flair to the work.
