Just recieved Nov. issue of NEC Digest. There is a picture of a panel in the "Electrical Safety Programs" article, anyone familiar with the color codes used?

It also looks like a red-blue-brown colors on the bottom and a brown-yellow-red color to the side. I didn't get a chance to read the whole article, and I don't have time right now.

Let me try...
Line side--Red Black Orange
Load side, left-- Red Blue Brown
Load side, right--Violet Yellow Orange

It looks like a larger starter and a reversing starter fed by the same feeder. It seems the taps for the second starter aren't protected, the line side isn't connected and the OL relay is missing. Anyone else know what this might be? Maybe it's a mock-up for the photo.
