Devices And Circuits - Wiring And Busbars

Let's learn about important components inside electrical cabinets - wiring (conductors) and busbars systems (60mm)
Write your awesome label here.

 What's included?

Welcome to my course series where I teach you about basic components and circuits inside and outside electrical cabinets.
This course in particular will cover two basic topics: wiring inside a cabinet and 60mm busbar system. This course is also real-life oriented, that's why we learn things that will benefit you on your real-life projects, where it doesn't matter whether you work as a designer, panel builder or system integrator that wants to dip his finger into electrical cabinets story a bit.

There are two real treats at the end of the course (last two videos/lessons):
  • 119 photos of electrical cabinets from international projects (my partner workshop) - both power and control cabinets, also SIVACON
  • RiLine60 busbar system in 3D in Eplan PRO Panel - where we experience in 3D how a 60 mm busbar system looks like in "reality"

Hope you'll enjoy the course and I'll be seeing you over there!
