A Real Scary Picture for Halloween
Someone forgot to remove the metal meter rings and brackets from the circuit breaker enclosure before they energized it! After I found this we shunt off the 1600A busway and cleaned out the breaker enclosure. One ring was within a 1/64th from an energized busbar. I was surprised we didnt have an explosion when we took the cover off!
Maybe this newsletter will make people check all the gear before they energize it. Oh by the way, this is a 5 story building and I found another one on a different floor just like this, except the rings were about 3 inches from the busbars.
Mike Holts Comment: This is scary and Im so glad that no one was injured.
