Storing prints in industrial equipment elec enclosure

Storing prints in industrial equipment elec enclosure

Storing prints in industrial equipment elec enclosure

Is there a guide for storing prints in a electrical panel?

RE: Storing prints in industrial equipment elec enclosure

In a previous era it was a bad idea to store prints in the enclosure due to corrosion from ammonia.  Now it is only a flammable material issue.

RE: Storing prints in industrial equipment elec enclosure

Storing anything inside an electrical panel seems like a bad idea.  Why would you want to do that?  The only thing that should be stored in an electrical panel is its panel schedule and perhaps a partial single line.  But these are normally affixed to the inside of the panelboard door.  I doubt that UL included a roll of drawings inside the panel enclosure when they did their testing.



RE: Storing prints in industrial equipment elec enclosure

I have never seen prints stored in a breaker panel, but, while it might not be a good idea, it is common to find prints stored in control panels.  There are often door pockets for paper work in these panels.  A number of plants that I have worked in have stored a set of panel drawings in an 11x17 format in these pockets.
