Does anyone know what section of code she refered to about above rule for circuit description?
In additon to the standard panel schedule, I draw a footprint in AutoCAD, draw a symbol for every outlet with a number in it so it makes it easy to find the breaker. I tape this map inside the panel cover (in an envelope if it is big).I'm a fan of good panel schedules but...
I hate it when you have to make up a schedule for somebody else's panels and they have two recepts on the west wall of the first floor hallway, a closet light next to "Hanna's" bedroom downstairs, switched recepts in the (?) library or sitting room, and a motion sensor on the northeast corner - all on one breaker.
Some guys just junk their wiring up so much there isn't enough room to write it all unless you print out a book and hang it next to the panels. That said, I think electrical plans with stuff marked on them is the best way to go, especially in large houses. Hanna's bedroom won't always be Hanna's bedroom, and some later owner isn't going to know where the "African room" or "new office" was.
4, 6, 8 -Rec room what? lights, receptacles, heater?
15 - Theater what? lights, projector, screen, lights?
I think this is what is meant by "...identified as to its clear, evident, and specific purpose or use."
Not picking on you, but this is what I call a good example. Remember the homeowner or caretaker is the person most likely to try locating a circuit breaker at some point.
This was a remodel. I simply changed some of the circuits and made the schedule to match what was already on there that I didn't work on. The only thing I changed in this panel was circuits 25 & 27 to the wine coolers. The original circuit fed a suana which was removed for a wine room.
480 - When you copy from an old panel schedule the circuits you didn't install or change, doesn't it bother you that your name/company info is on that schedule if you didn't actually verify that the circuits were what (you) are now saying they are? What do you think of putting a * next to the ones you could actually vouch for and at the bottom put something like "*= verified by CodeElectric". That way you're not sort of taking responsibility for whatever was on the original schedule? Just a thought - the last company I worked for kicked dirt and twigs on my idea, but I still like it...
