Hi all!! I love electrical forums, and this is my favorite so far. I'm an electrical technician for an OEM company that builds skidded process systems. We have an automation department that I'm in, and I build industrial control panels as well as running conduit on skids and wiring from the control panels to motors and instruments.

We are a UL panel shop, building panels in accordance of UL 508A (Industrial Control Panels), so I'm very familiar with that standard and have a fair understanding of the NEC.

I look forward to being a member of this forum and hope I can learn LOTS. I live to learn.

PS: I'm working on a job right now that's being shipped to Canada, and have a copy of the CEC, which is very similar to the NEC, just FYI.

It's the metal thing that holds the bus bar that all the breakers attach to.

Sorry it took so long to respond, been very busy at work and no time to check emails or this forum... I don't deal with breaker panels much. In fact, the job I'm working on now is the first in the 2 1/2 years I've been working for this company, that I'm working with a breaker panel. It's within a MCC. Usually in our industrial control panels, the breakers are DIN rail mounted.
