I finished up those bitcoin mining receptacles, and then went to troubleshoot the PA system. Turns out the amplifier needs to be replaced.

There's something satisfying about 3 phase wiring. Red red black black blue blue. Missing a 3 gang plate tho, but I have to go back anyway... I think I see a 3 phase service to my dream house now..

Did you run conduit or flex into your boxes? It just seems odd not to see an insulated EGC entering the boxes. Does Canada have the same requirement as the US for installing a ground in flex over 6 feet long?

Looks like he ran some sort of AC cable if you zoom in on the connector in the panel.

EDIT: Nevermind, I was looking at the wrong connector/ wires coming into the panel.

I've never seen an Eaton bolt-on twin breaker. Plenty of stab-ins but never a bolt-on.

That was the first thing I noticed too. I don't even think I have ever seen a commercial bolt on panel that would allow that.

Twins bolt-on's Type? I tried to zoom in but I the letters were blurred. It would sure be nice to find out where Kevin found these breakers. They could be real handy on certain jobs.

Canadian BX (MC) has a bare copper ground in it.

Only ran conduit into the panel from a 4" square. AC90 for the rest.

They are common as heck here.

This one does. Label on the cover says max 84 circuits... on the 42 circuit tub haha.

These are DNBA2020 breakers. IIRC there's 2 different Eaton bolt on breaker styles.

Same here... blew my mind. Something I appreciate about ET... despite the many years I been in the electrical industry, there is always something new to learn.
