I have a file I can e-mail you. It has a bunch of templates you can print out.
I'm not sure of they are NEMA though.

Seems to me I read somewhere where the label area for one space must by at least 1/4" x 3", but I have never been able to find it since then.

But I just use Excel.

Our secretary made a template in Excel. Since we can no longer get the stick on holders from Square D, we ended up with these huge momma's but as I get older, I do appreciate them more and more.:eek:

still trying to get her to teach me how to do it though. I am a computer whacker. that is a guy that tries to do everything but when I realize I can't and get frustrated, I whack my computer.:laughing:

looks like they work great.

Juat in case there are some cheap bastards like myself out there. I do not have microsoft programs like excel and word. I use "open office" systems that can open the corresponding microsoft program files.

Since you brought this back up.....



Why do they make the original panel schedules fit so damn TIGHT into the plastic sleeve? If I pull them out I have to struggle to get them back in.


Maybe it's just me??

engineers that have never been in the feild I suppose, another reason I like CH classic though, peel and stick right next to the breaker. although its commercial uses are limited by its aic rating . perfect for resi and light commercial...I digress...
home depot sells a label maker for $30 and it doesn't take that long to use it.

I have a program called Electric 2002 sold by Robert J LaC apra from New York that makes panel schedules, figures voltage drop, does conductor sizing, conduit fill, box fill, transformer calculations and more. It is a great program. Check out www.electrc.net for a newer(more expensive) version.
