Electrical Installation Guide in Wiki format !
The Electrical Installation Guide is now available here as a wiki (Electrical Installation Wiki). This wiki is a collaborative platform, brought to you by Schneider Electric: our experts are continuously improving its content, as they were doing for the guide. Collaboration to this wiki is also open to all.
The aim of the Electrical Installation Guide (and now Wiki) is to help electrical designers and contractors to design electrical installations according to standards such as the IEC60364 or other relevant standards.
You can find below the main table of content of this wiki, with links to all the different chapters or topics (as in the Electrical Installation Guide).
Power connections reliability
A number of factors can contribute to faulty power connections. One of them is the "creep effect on cables", which results in the loss of pressure in power connections, overheating, and even electrical fires.
Understand creeping effect and discover solutions to prevent this risk.
