TOPIC: Dead!!

Dead!! 12 years 2 months ago #33998

I don't know about you guys but Dead is a word I do not care to see on a main panel legend.
Very poor terminology. In fact this circuit labeled dead was very much alive as it was a 220 circuit.

I can see the new owner now seeing the label stating Dead, figuring it is, and it was'nt and now he is DEAD.

Bad word!!

Here is one from yesterday that states Kurt's retreat. Like I know what that controls.

Thanks To Paul Abernathy video training I really pay attention to the panel legend and I note them as safety issues.

What nobody has any response!!  Am I talking to myself.

We need an electrical wizard over here!!

Can we recruit Paul A or Jeff Pope, are there any HIP users that are experts in the electrical field??

The panel wording is essential and it must be correct.  When we moved into our house the panel said things like, "Mary's room," and "Freezer."  Useless.

Your word "Dead," Dave, is very dangerous.  Good for you for pointing that out.

There's been a few electrical pro's that come and go. Jeff has his brother using HIP but he hasn't converted (yet).

I agree that Dead is a terrible label on a panel.  I also tell all my clients not to trust all the labeling if electricl work is being done.  I advocate turning off the main because the labeling could be wrong.

I agree such a term can easily be misunderstood, as can things like "Mary's room" etc.  However, I don't know of any standard that requires or prohibits any specific terminology.  When I encounter such lableing, I usually include a precautionary note.  In most cases the labeling is incomplete anyway, so recommending an evaluation of the labeling is in order.
