Interesting Method of Terminating Conductors

Mike,

Here are a few pictures of some innovative ways to make additional connections in a transformer and the results that can happen when they are made. Thought you might enjoy them and feel free to share them with your followers.

Mike's Comment:

Some violations off the top of my head include:

110.3(B) Installation and Use. Listed or labeled equipment shall be installed and used in accordance with any instructions included in the listing or labeling.

110.14 Electrical Connections.

Because of different characteristics of dissimilar metals, devices such as pressure terminal or pressure splicing connectors and soldering lugs shall be identified for the material of the conductor and shall be properly installed and used. Conductors of dissimilar metals shall not be intermixed in a terminal or splicing connector where physical contact occurs between dissimilar conductors, unless the device is identified for the purpose and conditions of use.

(A) Terminals. Connection of conductors to terminal parts shall ensure a thoroughly good connection without damaging the conductors.

Terminals for more than one conductor and terminals used to connect aluminum shall be so identified.

P.S. But I have to say, this was very creative.
