I’m working to implement a new wire numbering standard, where there currently isn’t one. I like the idea of using the electrical drawing’s row # to generate the wire numbers, so on row # 108 (sheet 1) a wire may be named 1080, 1081… ex.
The problem I have with this method is what to do when wires are ran from one control panel to another control panel, each with their own electrical drawing. One might add the drawing number onto the wire number for all wires that exit the panel so example drawing # 10123 has wire # 1080 that goes to another panel, so label the wire leaving the panel 10123-1080. However if this is the wire number, what would you label this same wire node in the other panel. Looking for expertise on this subject.
Hi Chris, happy to help however I can… my new book has a ton of information about wire and page numbering and takes a machine apart page by page. Hit me up directly and we can discuss it, firstname.lastname@example.org
