Electrical Switch Gear
Last week, we moved the electrical switch gear for the first quadrant of the building into place.
Step A – Load each piece of switch gear onto a big fork lift. Then transport each individual piece to Data Cave.
Step B – Transfer the switch gear to a smaller fork lift that can easily maneuver inside Data Cave’s Shipping/Receiving area.
Step C – Repeat Step 1A and 1B for all five pieces of the switch gear.
Step A – Setup forklift to pick up a piece of gear from the top.
Step B – Hoist gear into place.
Ensure all 32 of the 500 MCM copper wires are inside of the switch gear before it reaches it’s final resting place.
Step C – Hoist the second piece of switch gear into place next to the first piece. Piece two is a bit trickier because bus duct from the first piece of gear must fit inside the second piece of gear.
Step D – Repeat Step C for the remaining 3 pieces of gear.
Here’s the finished product. When completely setup, this switch gear will provide the first quadrant of the building with up to 4000 amps of power.
