Posted By Topic: Switchboard capacity

Sep 28 2018 11:08


I’m trying to find any reference to the capacity of a switchboard. I have been questioned by an employee that you need to leave 20% free. I can’t see anything but want to make sure that I am giving my staff correct information.
I hope someone can lead me to the right place.

There\'s no requirement to allow for later additions; but it\'s a good idea.

Were they talking about maybe?

But as with any statement like they made, ask them what clause they are referring to.

I\'m pretty sure that\'s the only possible reference; but no mention of any particular figure.
