78. Switchboard Com


This contractor shall furnish and erect the following apparatus and material:

One combination (material) switchboard with a capacity for ---- circuits, and provided with the necessary sockets, plugs, main and

transfer cables, testing connections, and a suitable and convenient device for holding cables not in use. It shall be so arranged and marked that any circuit or series of circuits may be quickly connected with or disconnected from any dynamo with the least possible danger of short-circuits or error. Sockets shall be so designed that it is practically impossible to short-circuit, ground, or receive a shock from them. All connections with the dynamo leads shall be easily accessible. All wires used in making connections shall have

- insulation. All plugs shall have well insulated wooden handles, and the cables shall be covered with soft-rubber tubing or equivalent as an extra precaution. All cables shall be of stranded wire.

All joints shall be soldered. All connections to switches, cut-outs, etc., shall be soldered or made with an approved form of lug or setscrew, in all cases care being taken to secure good and sufficient contact to prevent heating and insure permanency; when made with lugs or set-screws they shall be in plain sight and easily accessible for tightening. Connecting wires shall be so run and secured that crosses or grounds are impossible in the normal operation of the plant.
