Recently, I did some work in an industrial rental. I was impressed by the clean work done by the original electrician.

The service coming in is 480/277; the 277 is used for the lighting. Most of the 480 is sent through a transformer (mounted between the panels) to the 208/120 panel.

This place was built with a number of 45 degree walls (all part of makng for easier truck access). The second pic shows how a neat pipe bend can wrap around that corner just fine.

Now, if only we can keep the tenant from "improving" things!

Very nice!! A pleasure to see some quality work!

That transformer looks mighty small..what was it rated at?


Stupid should be painful.

Now that is good work John!.
Bending conduit used to be one of my pet fears when I was first taken on as an apprentice.
I couldn't seem to bend anything, without mucking it up every time.
I suppose it's just one of them things that take practice, I can bend conduit to fit any shaped structure these days though.
Them panels are tidy too!. [Linked Image]

This picture brings back memories of the very first conduit run I ever did. It had to go around a turret on a house, and I had three bends to make just like the ones pictured. I remember standing there trying to figure out how to get my bends right on the corners of the house. Between that and the offsets, I was definitely in over my head.

The run was only 30' long, but after a lot of hack-sawing and five (5!) couplings, I got it up there. [Linked Image] [Linked Image]
