#11 looks real interesting:
  • What is that in the back of the box? Bussbars?
  • What type of conduits and connectors are those?

If I didn't know any better I'd say that is the side of a transformer.

Are all these pic from some piece of equipment? The busbars in the pullcan look custom designed, and a bit scary if there's no bushing or bracket to keep them off the sides of that opening!

P.S. love the marvy work with the silver Krylon

No 11 is freakin me out...man.
1. Home made bussing
2. Lack of proper clearance through both boxes
3. Grounded conduit right in front of the small oaked-in box.
4. that looks like a HV transformer thats been cut into.

This reminds me of some work I saw in Palm Springs on the wind farms.

Wow 4-1/2 years since this post was originally posted.

Is this part of an OEM machine or piece of equipment?
I think that some OEM shops will install the wiring any way they want and slap a UL label on it and get away without following the same installation methods that we are bound to when the wiring is field installed.

I am sure that the OEM shops dont have actual electricians doing this work.
