5. Each electrical equipment should have its own dedicated switch box. Each electrical equipment on the construction site should have its own dedicated switch box, and must meet the requirements of “one machine, one gate, one leakage”. It is strictly forbidden to directly control two or more electrical equipment (including sockets) with the same switch appliance. A leakage protector must be installed in the switch box, and its rated leakage current should not be greater than 30ma, and the leakage action time should not be greater than 0.1s.

6. In order to ensure safety, all power distribution box doors should be equipped with locks, no other temporary electrical equipment should be hooked up or plugged into the power distribution box and switch box, and it is strictly forbidden to place sundries in the switch box.

7. The color of the outer coating of the distribution box (cabinet) should be electrostatically sprayed according to Party A’s requirements. The coating should be firmly attached, uniform in color, and free of wrinkles, peeling, spots, leaks, etc., at a distance of 1 meter. There is no obvious chromatic aberration and reflection, and the surface is flat and clean, and there is no damage such as pits and scratches. Other galvanized parts used in the box (cabinet) should also be free from flaking, spots, plating leaks, rust and other undesirable phenomena, and the appearance quality must meet the same requirements. There must be no debris, dust, etc. in the box (cabinet).

8. Mechanical requirements for distribution boxes (cabinet).

The thickness of the steel plate selected for the distribution box body is not less than 1.5mm, and the thickness of the distribution cabinet body is not less than 2.0mm thick cold-rolled steel plate, and the thickness of the steel plate door and steel plate surface is not less than 2.0mm. The thickness of the back plate is not less than 3.0mm. The guide rail must be sturdy, and the structure of the power distribution cabinet should be complete and sturdy. At the same time, two bearing lugs are welded on the lower left corner and upper right corner of the back of the non-floor power distribution box. The bearing lugs are made of 40*4 flat steel, and the length of the flat steel is 10cm. The connection method and assembly location of the internal electrical components of the box (cabinet) are reasonable, and the number, size, shape and installation method of the box (cabinet) must meet the requirements of national standards, atlases, and design drawings. The reserved openings or knock-out holes for incoming and outgoing lines should have corresponding seals to ensure that they can meet the three-level sealing requirements after the incoming and outgoing lines are assembled.

The welding and bolt connection of the distribution box (cabinet) should be firm, and the welding seam should be uniform, smooth, without welding skin, welding penetration, pores and other undesirable phenomena; the bolt connection should have flat, spring washers, and exposed threaded buckles 2-5 buckle. The internal parts and opening edges of the distribution box (cabinet) should be smooth and free of burrs and cracks. The movable parts of the box (cabinet) can be opened flexibly. The coating or plating should not be damaged during the opening and closing process. The opening angle should not be less than 90 degrees. The door lock should be concealed. The door lock should be firm and reliable. Shaking, the door hinge is metal chrome-plated. When the door length is greater than 1.2 meters, three hinges can be installed, and two can be used when the door is less than 1.2 meters. The hinges should have sufficient load-bearing capacity. Produce permanent deformation.

The gap between the door and the door of the distribution box (cabinet) must be the same. The gap should be less than 1mm. When the gap length is greater than 1 meter, the uniformity difference should not be greater than 1.5mm. The nameplate of each distribution box (cabinet) must be made of metal. The nameplate contains at least six items including product name, model, manufacturer name, main technical parameters, factory number, and production date. The nameplate should be fixed on the visible place of the front panel, the specific position should be beautiful and reasonable, and the fixing requirement should be firm. Boxes and cabinets must be accompanied by main circuit diagrams, system diagrams, schematic diagrams, and secondary control diagrams. The parameters of the circuit diagrams are consistent with the actual products, and they must be plasticized. Use 2mm thick flame-retardant transparent boards to embed the boxes and cabinet doors. .

9. All boxes (cabinet) should be welded with the main ground terminal on the box (cabinet) structure, and the main ground terminal should match the largest grounding conductor in the grounding box (cabinet), and it is required to make specifications at the ground terminal The grounding terminal symbol of the grounding terminal, and the busbar of the protective grounding system should be yellow-green and marked with PE letters over the entire length. The box (cabinet) should be equipped with a special grounding bolt with a diameter of not less than 6mm connected to the metal foundation. The box (cabinet) metal plate, frame, all movable doors, isolation two-layer board, metal plate with live conductor, door with electrical appliances above 36V, cover plate and other conductive parts must be braided with copper tin strip and box The grounding terminal on the (cabinet) body is reliably connected to ensure the continuity of the normal operation of the non-charged metal parts in the box (cabinet) body and the grounding system.

10. All components in the box (cabinet) should be selected in strict accordance with the contract and the drawings provided by us. If there is any change, we will notify separately. The auxiliary components not indicated on the drawings should be selected from the certified manufacturer. Qualified products. The components on all products should be guaranteed to meet the product performance requirements. The manufacturer shall provide the certificate of origin of the components, the qualification of the supplier, the specifications and models, the breaking capacity of the circuit breaker, and the certification documents of the electromagnetic leakage protector. The installation of components in the box (cabinet) should be tightened, and there should be no slipping or damage to the coating. Anti-loosening measures and complete fasteners should be provided.

11. Protection requirements for power distribution cabinets; power distribution boxes (cabinets) are required to be able to operate under the conditions of third-level pollution, that is, the protection level of the power distribution cabinets reaches IP3X. All steel plates and section steels used in the box body must be degreasing, derusting and phosphating treatment before spraying, and other metal parts must have anti-corrosion ability, otherwise, anti-corrosion measures must be taken for treatment. All insulation in the distribution cabinet must be a self-extinguishing material. The power distribution cabinet must carry out various electrical performance inspections and experiments in accordance with GB05171-1992 and relevant national regulations and standards, and the manufacturer shall provide the inspection and experiment data and effective inspection and experiment reports to the supervision of Party A.
