Default Re: What year did output voltages change?

Didn't snap a pic of finished job, these were shot for client files. Not pictured: 100 amp main breakers on 8ga incomers... Note melted plastic backpane in lower left corner. All panels are so rusted/corroded no hardware will turn and busbars are failing. I only have 8 more similar catastrophes in same building, to do when units are vacant or as required.

I can, however, offer some substitute porn: an infrared sauna control box I built for the same client awhile back. Original went TU and replacements are NLA, original was to crispy to repair. Everything in it is common/off the shelf, unlike original. Tossed it together in a couple of hours, it's located in a women's gym - you REALLY don't want a bunch of cranky gynorapters angry with you...

Wow,,, I'm not a card carrying electrician, but my brother in laws would kick my backside for doing something like that.
