Don't take me the wrong way but its absurd to join a forum, post a genuine first time question and then be stoned to death before I ever gain an answer.
I never did receive any feedback from most of my question because most of you were too busy throwing stones at me....for whatever reasons, to read and engage in sensible dialogue. I'm sorry but, I wasn't the one that created it. I was only here to engage and learn...that's it...couldn't care less about arguing. Thanks to wbdut, fulthrotl and wtucker and maybe another for providing some good information. thanks.
I'm still curious about arcs and distances between meter leads --regarding arc probabilities inside panels and disconnects should a transient hit the line when testing with meter. What are your thoughts regarding arc potentials- jumping between exposed portions of meter lead probes when testing? Although I use new silicon fluke TL175 leads with their screw down probe shields, the approach does concern me.
Yeah I just need to pick me up a copy of 70E for PPE advise and type, given select tasks. I was trying to ascertain and get a feel of what you all are doing for coverage in the commercial and light industrial environments regarding PPE. Such as in the smaller MDPs and 400A panels? Level suit--calories, when working with such panels.
