Elements of an Electrical Wiring System
It is essential that all the electrical wiring of a structure is inside it, and that the only way to see them is through a board, so if you have to replace a wiring or even make a new one is basic the fact of breaking the wall or the area where the cable is, because the only thing that should protrude is the octagon of the bulb, the socket and switches.
Electrical wiring installations require a skilled hand, the right tools and an understanding of basic safety measures. Usually the experts at Network One Electrical Contracting Corp. tend to evaluate and address this specifically:
Have in a blueprint the whole shape or structure of the property where it will be placed in order to better plan the installation, calculate the materials so as not to exceed in quantity and give a more detailed explanation to the owner.
Make the separation of important materials such as phase, neutral and ground wires and have them identified at the time of installation. After this, proceed to get the permits indicated for the area.
Identify the distribution board and the terminals to begin the entry of the phase, neutral and ground cable in the thermomagnetic circuit breakers that are in charge of each circuit to work in a correct way.
In the thermomagnetic circuit breaker, enter the phase cable on the left and the neutral on the right. For safety reasons, both are connected from the top and exit from the bottom. After this, check that each thermomagnetic is in its place and next to a differential switch, with its individual rail well marked to avoid a short with other cables.
Then, the cables must be taken to the respective socket through the established circuits. In addition, it is necessary to verify that they are in good condition and that the terminal is correctly inserted where it should be.
Things not to do during wiring installation
This part is indicated so that you can check the result of the electricians’ work yourself, and that you can complain if any of these are fulfilled or not fulfilled:
- Communication cables cannot be laid together with power cables, it can create a short. And the curvature of the cable must be respected, it must not extend more than 4 times its diameter or it will impair the operation.
- Do not use staples, ties with rubber bands or any method that presses the cable too much and unconsciously joins it to the other cables, usually it should be pressed with Velcro or materials
- Cables should not be exposed, they should be far away from any electrical appliance and well protected inside the wall or insulating system, as they are high risk.
- Be careful not to stretch or pull the cables with a force that exceeds their capacity.
- It is recommended to label the cable according to the service or equipment it is connected to.
- Keep a documentation of cables, available and used ports for better control and future growth.
