Message from Infineon in MacGuyver - Skills & Academics #electrician
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.
Any low voltage questions, I know a bit. I started out as a low voltage tech in my current company.
Always. Plus crimpers and a toner.
Always a fun time.
@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
Digital toners will. I use a pretty cheap toner from Fluke that will tone through anything. (Cheap by Fluke standards, at least)
That will read thru mag shields?
Yeah, I've even had it pick up through metal conduit and from behind 4 inches of concrete.
I've yet to find a place that won't pick up a wire.
Please shoot me the model info
I have the older model of this one.
Has RJ45 and RG6 barrel connectors
Well i know the toner im buying next time someone wants a needle in a server room haystack found
Will even test the line too.
My toner is for mostly tracing underground 120v-480v
I'm not sure if it's on this model, but mine also has plugins for banana clips
Yeah, the highest I'll touch is 220
And even then, I'm not supposed to
But even then it can be difficult to trace underground work
Its funny that people freak about higher V
Voltage and current are inversely related
Meh. It all shocks the same. It's just not under our contractor's license.
I hear that
Do you fusion splice also?
Not personally, no.
I can terminate fiber though.
I feel like i wasted my time with fiber, certs but rarely get the work for it
Sc and st?
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
And usually just SC
But I've done fiber patch panels that are in ST
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
