Age and demand. When a compressor sits for 9 months without use the oil in the refrigerant sludges to the bottom. Then you hope to turn the system on. The mechanical side tries to move, but the electrical side doesnt know that the mechanical side is struggling so it tries hard and dies

Exactly. One thing you have to remember is electricity is a very powerful thing. Many times when a component fails there will be physical damage that you will be able to see on many of the components. Burns, discoloration, melting, etc.

But the actual swelling. Pressure? Temp change?

@William Kenney – MD a capacitor stores static electric energy in a dialectric space... literally lighting in a bottle. When and electric motor is mechanically locked the electrical system will generate more, without ampacity monitors devices will literally overheat. See the by prodruct of electricity is heat. Our NEC is technically NFPA volume 70. The national electric code is written by the national fire protection agency

this is arc damage on a 100A main breaker.

2017-07-25 04:59:29 UTC  

Any low voltage questions, I know a bit. I started out as a low voltage tech in my current company.

2017-07-25 05:00:55 UTC  

Still carry scissors and a punch tool? @Infineon

2017-07-25 05:06:40 UTC  

Always. Plus crimpers and a toner.

2017-07-25 05:07:58 UTC

2017-07-25 05:08:03 UTC  

Always a fun time.

2017-07-25 05:13:28 UTC  

@Infineon dressing racks is so tedious. BTW have they made a toner that reads thru mag shields yet? I had a hospital contract years ago where a guy cut the labels off in the server room on cat6a with mag shields.... fml that was ridiculous to ID

2017-07-25 05:15:30 UTC  

Digital toners will. I use a pretty cheap toner from Fluke that will tone through anything. (Cheap by Fluke standards, at least)

2017-07-25 05:15:33 UTC

2017-07-25 05:16:11 UTC  

That will read thru mag shields?

2017-07-25 05:16:39 UTC  

Yeah, I've even had it pick up through metal conduit and from behind 4 inches of concrete.

2017-07-25 05:16:48 UTC  

Holy shit

2017-07-25 05:16:54 UTC  

I've yet to find a place that won't pick up a wire.

2017-07-25 05:17:05 UTC  

Please shoot me the model info

2017-07-25 05:17:57 UTC  

I have the older model of this one.

2017-07-25 05:18:31 UTC  

Has RJ45 and RG6 barrel connectors

2017-07-25 05:18:34 UTC  

Well i know the toner im buying next time someone wants a needle in a server room haystack found

2017-07-25 05:18:50 UTC  

Will even test the line too.

2017-07-25 05:19:21 UTC  

My toner is for mostly tracing underground 120v-480v

2017-07-25 05:19:38 UTC  

I'm not sure if it's on this model, but mine also has plugins for banana clips

2017-07-25 05:19:55 UTC  

Yeah, the highest I'll touch is 220

2017-07-25 05:20:05 UTC  

And even then, I'm not supposed to

2017-07-25 05:20:08 UTC  

But even then it can be difficult to trace underground work

2017-07-25 05:20:33 UTC  

Its funny that people freak about higher V

2017-07-25 05:20:48 UTC  

Voltage and current are inversely related

2017-07-25 05:21:02 UTC  

Meh. It all shocks the same. It's just not under our contractor's license.

2017-07-25 05:21:12 UTC  

I hear that

2017-07-25 05:21:59 UTC  

Do you fusion splice also?

2017-07-25 05:22:30 UTC  

Not personally, no.

2017-07-25 05:22:37 UTC  

I can terminate fiber though.

2017-07-25 05:22:58 UTC  

I feel like i wasted my time with fiber, certs but rarely get the work for it

2017-07-25 05:23:13 UTC  

Sc and st?

2017-07-25 05:24:02 UTC  

Yeah, fiber's exploding around here so it's actually pretty easy to find work as AT&T is pulling it to all the current businesses and ressies

2017-07-25 05:24:27 UTC  

And usually just SC

2017-07-25 05:24:54 UTC  

But I've done fiber patch panels that are in ST

2017-07-25 05:26:37 UTC  

When i was in the military i worked with a system that was fiber for engineering spaces on an aircraft carrier. Got out and barely touched glass
