I've been asked to go to one of my good customer's production facilities for an inspection/assessment...It's in Mexico, where the NEC is not an issue.
I've got an immediate idea of what I'm looking for:
Overcurrent Protection
I've got to get a work visa, now that's quite a turn on things. huh?.

What else would you look for ??...S

Just a suggestion: There was a Mexican electrican (inspector?) who moderated a forum on Joe Tedesco's site. You could ask Joe how to contact this guy.

By the way: I was under impression that there is a Mexican edition of the US NEC?

Thanks, guys!
I just want to make sure the place is safe and reliable. This isn't gonna be an NEC to the letter type of deal. I can't ask for that.
I don't think I'll run into a lot of the "garden hose as conduit with zip cord inside" type thing, but I'd sure like suggestions as to when to let up on these guys.
Ryan, I'll come across with my full compliment of tax-free Tequila, but won't have much to do with it...maybe I'll send it to you [Linked Image]...that stuff makes me want to climb up into the tops of trees, etc., so I stay away.
Paul, yes, yo hablo. (my mother in law's a retired Court Interpreter)
Bill, You remember what happened the last time I left home without the camera? Shutting off the electrician still isn't an option. [Linked Image]
C-H, thanks, that's Pedro. I'll be seeing Joe next week, and will ask.
Thanks for the well wishes, amigos...S

Don't know why I remember this, but the utility there is Commission Federale de Electricidad. :-)

A federal agency involved with local electrical distribution? I guess that explains the problems! [Linked Image]

Apparently it was a fed gov. monopoly that was involved in power generation....

Also probably explains why appliances are designed around 127 volts.....I have a toaster that had separate wattage and amperage ratings for both 120 V and 127 V printed on the box it came in. It was made in Mexico.

Hey electure, can you bring me back some two-pin plugs & sockets? [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Have fun. Be careful.
