Such a mix of components. ABB circuit breakers Siemens PLC looks like Mersen fuse holders and Entrelec terminal blocks. The power supply looks like a copy of a copy of every other PSU out there.

Yep. Boss/owner likes what he likes. Minus the fuse blocks. We usually use Allen Bradley but they've been on backorder for ever now and had to come up with something that took the same fuse. McMaster to the rescue LOL

Oh and the terminal blocks are Elmex

Never dealt with Elmex just Wieland and Entrelec.

The Mersen ATDR fuses for those holders have been unobtainium for us lately. In what world is a fuse a 28+ week lead time. Let alone a 42cct 3ph bolt on panel can be over 100 working days... Sure makes my job un-fun.

I can, but you better have the winning powerball ticket to be able to afford what I'm going to charge you ūü§£
only if it's the same care taken with Crunchy Frog....or do you charge extra for spring water?

I'm curious...why do I see houses in Canada where the driveway slopes down to a below ground garage? don't they get flooded with snowmelt?
It’s a dumb design , but as long as the drain is working they’re ok
No new houses built that way

It's cause the developer was a cheap Choilie and didn't want to invest in a bottom or two of back fill to build up the site before raising the foundation and house. So they went with some kind of french drain design which, as Kamloops points out, works, until it doesn't.

It is. Once a year during spring cleaning you get your basement floors washed for free by the snowmelt :LOL:
