Any way to size Service Entrance just by looking at it?

Reply Fri 10 May, 2019 01:37 pm

I am trying to see if there's a way to tell what kind of service entrance equipment (single or 3 phase, voltage and amps) is going into a building just by looking at the setup from the outside. I'm not an electrician or engineer- I'm in construction estimating, and often times I only get pictures of it without any detail.

If I can I'll post a picture of what I mean in the thread after I post this.

Well it would appear I can't post images. If you want to see what I mean, I'd be happy to email you a copy of the picture. Or if anybody knows how to post a picture on this thread that would be great. Thanks!

you have to upload the images to a hosting site like imgur or tinypic.

once you have the urls, use IMG tags to format the images...

Tree phase has two big panel boxes outside, both locked. One has a big shiny pull lever on the side to turn power off.
If it is n
ot three phase it has a clear glass bulb in the center of a panel outside for the electric company to read numbers off.
If it is humming 3 phase, if it is the only bit of electrical equipment in sight not 3phase

Is it copper tin or just aluminum, if you have two metals together forget about the price you are way in over your head.
