Components that are improperly located within the switchgear could cause damage to the switchgear. Verify the integrity of the internal components of the switchgear. Ensure that a safety check is performed before the switchgear is energized. Bodily contact with electrical potential will cause personal injury or death.
All of the power connections are located in the rear of the cabinet of the switchgear. The bus is designed for connections from below the switchgear. Perform the following steps in order to complete the safety check before initial start-up:
Ensure that all electrical connections are tight and secure. Refer to table 1.
