No Resi work today.
Got my first Angie's List Call today! I pulled 4 wires from the panel. (3Ph high leg.) Existing pipe and greenfield. It felt good to hookup the motor connections and check the starter connections. It's been a while!


This place was full of exotic cars. (No Pics) They said they will do a review for me and have me scheduled for more work already in may. Thanks for looking.

Good to hear Angie's List is working for you. I'd have to look in my Ugly's book to wire any motor from leads only. Never did much of this work at all.

Off the top of my head it was (T1-T7 Line 1) (T2-T8 Line 2) (T3-T9 Line 3) (Then T4-T5-T6 splice together by themselves)

I would have used seal tite, but I work for an oil company.

I wouldn't have wasted any new straps on it either, what's the worst thing that can happen, the flexible raceway flexes around a bit?

I would put couple straps in there to keep the noise down you know how much viberation the compressours will run.

The other thing is the disconnect switch is in sight of this unit ?

Merci,
Marc

I usually recommend the pre-packaged IR compressors. The motor starter, and air cooler is built in.

If you look closely the bottom EMT has an offset, and get real, is it really necessary to bend offsets in a 6" and 10" piece of EMT?

I do agree that the flex should be strapped down better, no need for so much of it to be hanging in the air.
