Cables terminated on the incorrect side of your switchboard

Have you ever found that the LV distribution armoured cables were terminated on the incorrect side of your switchboard after they had been dressed nicely and terminated?

It can also happen when the design information is unclear, such as when excessively long cable references are utilised and switchboard cubicles have no or different references, or when cable schedules group cables by type rather than listing all instances and cross-referencing the switchboard label.

If your LV distribution uses an Electrical Management System (EMS) for load shedding, such as SCADA, then each protective device will be allocated a unique number, such as ‘F39’. In this circumstance, it would be prudent to add the device number on the traffic label.
