General Information

  • We use white-colored outlets, switches, and wall plates. Some of the older stuff is a mix of ivory and black, but use white whenever purchasing anything.
  • If it's installed on masonry, use galvanized steel plates and white outlets.

Needed Upgrades

Deferred

  • Popcorn machine (Waiting for machine's final destination)

Lighting

  • Inspect load on main space light circuit and see if we can put two to four more lights on it. (Greg and Jon discovered it's about 6½ amps, so there's room.)
  • One more light in the woodworking area. (high importance)

The annex

  • A 20A 120V drop for new and existing lighting and the ceiling fan.
  • Figure out what the hell is wrong with the one outlet that pops breakers when stuff's plugged into it.

Breaker panels

We put a new breaker panel in the dirty room. It is fed from Panel 2, and supplies 125A. This will allow us to run more circuits, as they will be cheaper and easier. The drawing will get some updates when I (Greg) track down the source.

Current outlet layout

This is a very rough layout of where outlets are in the hive. The text is the circuit breaker panel (panel 1, 2, or 3) followed by the breaker that the outlet is connected to. These locations are not exact and many outlets have not been traced yet (shown by a question mark). HIVE13.floor.plan.outlets.png

Lights

  • The fab lab and lounge lights are tied in to the majority of the outlets in those room. They are on P1B19.
  • The main lights in the space I believe are on breaker 4.
  • The electronics area lights are on ??
  • The kitchen area lights are on ??
  • The dirty room lights are on??

Saturday, Aug. 22, 2015

Jon and Greg poured blood, sweat, and tears into getting the conduit installed for panel 3. All that remains is feeding four strands of prohibitively stiff wire through eighty feet of conduit, then we'll have power!

Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015

Jon , Greg and Andrew got three of the wires run through the conduit. Close!

Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015

Jon , Greg and Andrew got the last wire through the conduit. Bought the wrong size lug nut for the neutral tie in for panel 2, but we got the power running temporarily until we can fix that. Jon ran wire from panel 3 to the two unfinished boxes in the dirty room and the box by the electronics area. They only need to be tied in to panel 3. The high intensity LED light was also tied in to the switch for the welding warning light.

Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015

Greg finished installing the neutral wire into the panel, so it is now completely working. The feed to the electronics area was also completed.

Tuesday, Sept. 15 2015

Greg finished installing the west wall dirty room drop and removed the odd wire coming off of the meeting room wall drop.

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Greg added a switch for the CNC Router.

Thursday, July 5, 2018

Greg changed around P3B1&3 and P3B5 to be in each other's place so that the 220V drop could power the Lounge's A/C.

Wednesday, October 3, 2018

Greg added a NEMA 14-50 receptacle on the north wall of the Metal Room.

NEMA Connectors in use

NEMA 6-50

A NEMA 6-50 Receptacle
