Specifying Flexible Conduit with Extreme Temperatures in Mind

Introduction
Most electrical wiring and conduits operate within a “comfortable” range of operating temperatures, but there are also many others that experience either extremely low or high temperatures or both. All of these cases require conduits specially designed to deliver their rated performance, including flexibility and protection, under conditions beyond those of standard types.

Less Work to Meet Safety Requirements

Some facilities are changing their requirements for motor and appliance installations. This could be due to OSHA Lock-out and Tag-out requirements or NFPA 70E. The change is toward using pin and sleeve devices instead of having a hard-wired installation.

Safety requirements often have the maintenance person checking for the absence of voltage before touching. The rules are quite specific and are enforced by OSHA.

Switchboards: The Cornerstone of Power Supply Dependability

Switchboards are critical to the dependability of any electrical power installation because they represent that pivotal point at which incoming power supply is divided into separate circuits, controlled and protected by fuses and switchgear, metered, and then divided into a number of functional units for its given applications. In general, switchboards distribute power to transformers, panelboards, control equipment, and to system loads.
