VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: [Smart Home Automation DIY] Make 1 and 3 phase Power Distribution Box

Hello! everyone, we have make many videos about Smart Power Distribution Box all these Power Distribution Box based on KinCony's ethernet relay module and this AC Contactor, such as 3 phase and 1 phase so we just according to power loader chose AC Contactor's model we can make many different kinds of Power Distribution Box today we will to see how to make a Power Distribution Box with 3 phase and 1 phase together there are 3 channel of 3 phase power supply 23 units AC Contactor for single-phase power supply all these together have 26 channel power supply so we can look at how to make it We use KC868-H32L ethernet relay module , 1 phase and 3 phase AC contactor and breaker to make Smart Power Distribution Box this DIN Rail will fix all device we need install DIN Rail on the metal board firstly This is "N" line terminal now I will tell you how to use this AC Contactor to control device the principle is very easy,just use our relay box connect with AC Contactor 3 phase or single-phase when controller give AC Contactor power, such as AC220V or AC380V then L1--L3 will be ON when no power, L1--L3 will be OFF, will be closed so according to principle, you can chose which AC Contactor according to your country's power line so you can use mobile phone,PC ,voice or other control way for remote control device now we use 1 phase AC contactor , work power is AC220V if your country not use AC220V,such as AC110V or AC230V, just replace with another model this black device is 3 phase AC Contactor this DB have 3 channl 3 phase power main controller: KinCony's KC868-H32L home automation module 1 phase:23 channel 3 phase:3 channel install the 3 phase power income breaker it's very large for power in AC 160A fix controller ready to install manual control keyboard The main wire uses multiple lines in parallel to reduce the impedance Use hydraulic tong to make the line interface Install insulation to prevent sparks Thanks For Watching!

 

4. Generator Accessory Power Distribution Box With Electric Meters, Extension Cord, Spider Box

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Generator Accessory Power Distribution Box With Electric Meters, Extension Cord, Spider Box

all right guys today I'm going to show you this generator accessory power distribution box Spider Box whatever you want to call it I originally made a box like this similar to this for a 120 volt 3500 watt generator that I bought last winter I have since upgraded to a 7600 watt 240 volt generator and originally I was going to buy a generator that did not have a power meter on it and I wanted a power meter that would show my total consumption that I'm drawing from the generator and so I was going to build this box with some meters just to uh you know to keep my eye on you know line one and line two of the 240 volt you got two Hots that makes 240 volts and one two 120 here 120 here so if you look at this box everything down the center here is 100 is 120 volt line one and everything down here is 120 volt line two and like I said the main reason was to have the power 4 meters and this does allow me to have the generator pushed a ways back into the woods and I can run a cord up to it it's uh the cord is uh is 10 gauge 10-4 so cord with a 240 volt 30 amp twist lock plug on it now just for the video today I'm going to be using an adapter that I made that goes from a regular 120 volt Outlet just to demonstrate this box and so when I'm demonstrating it tonight on that adapter and you're looking at these two power meters the incoming power the voltage and the Hertz on both of these should be the same but then these two outlets are connected to this meter and these two outlets are connected to this meter so anything drawing off of these Outlets would be different depending on what's plugged into which outlet and of course this 20 amp breakers for this Outlet this one's for this one and so on and so forth of course down here on the bottom I've got a it's actually like a strain relief it's a well it is a strain relief but it also is a uh like a locking when you when you tighten up the the nut here there's some teeth that bite into the rubber sheeting on this so cord so the the cord doesn't pull out it gives a nice strain relief one of the benefits of this box is that it only has if I can show you here it only has about 15 feet of cable on it so you could plug this into your generator and it only gets you 15 feet away however I do have generator extension cords I have uh several 25 foot I think I actually have three or four 25 foot 10 gauge four wire extension cord so I can get this up to 100 feet away from the generator so I could plug I guess what what I'm getting at is I could plug this into the generator and then out the top of this box I can take an extension cord and plug into here 25 50 75 feet and I can plug that into my Inlet box from the back of my house and feed my transfer switch or I could put 75 feet of cord in front of this box you know I could plug 50 or 75 feet of cord into the generator first and then plug this box in I I guess what I'm trying to get at is this this box can be used at either end of the circuit to either be used at the generator end or at the opposite end of the extension cord these meters will meter everything that goes through these Outlets and through this plug so if I want to plug my Inlet box to feed my transfer switch in my house these meters will show what my house is drawing let me get this plugged in and I'll show you how the meters work okay so just to be clear like I said before these Breakers are for these Outlets these GFI outlets these Breakers are not connected to this Outlet leaving the Box but these gauges are so these gauges will read anything plugged in here or down the line from that outlet on the top of the box this switch is a double pole single throw switch so instead of having two individual switches one for each gauge it's basically two switches in the body of one switch so one switch turns both meters on I don't know if you can see that all right I killed some of the light and Zoomed In A Little Closer hopefully that'll help you see the the meters a little bit better anyway like I said I'm running off that adapter so both of these gauges are probably read pretty much exactly the same voltage and the exact same Hertz unless there's some variances within the meters themselves which I wouldn't doubt they're not very expensive meters so I don't think that they're super highly accurate but they give you a real good ballpark uh and so just to demonstrate you know each one of these is a 20 amp GFI outlet you can test red light comes on reset test reset end I've got testers here it's a GFI tester and circuit tester both lights come on that means it's good hit the button to test the GFI everything works like it should that way these particular Outlets have real real tight uh pin fitment I guess you'd call it which is nice ooh which is nice uh I've got an electric heater over here if you can see this I've got an electric heater over here and I'm going to uh plug it into one of these and test so this would be line one anything on this side of the meter is line one anything over here is line two and so we can look at the amp draw and the the wattage it's funny that the that the uh it's funny that the Watts don't start at zero that must be what the gauge itself draws because I have nothing turned on or feeding downline from these gauges so but let's turn on this heater we will uh I will turn on just the fan first of all and you can see that that's 0.22 amps 22 Watts now if I turn it on to the first section of heat that's uh 750 watts worth of heat you see it doesn't quite go to 750 at 726. uh 6.09 amps and we're out of still 119 volts now this is plugged into the wall outlet at the house so you know we're not we're not testing a generator here at this point I'm just demonstrating the the meter and if I go to high on the on the heater should go to 1500 goes to 1320. now if I turn this off and I unplug it from here plug it into this side or I can plug it into any one of these doesn't matter we'll go to Fan first to two tenths of an amp 21 Watts still 122 volts we're going to go to low on the heat which should be 750 watts now just like the other one it didn't quite draw a 750. and now if we go to uh high on the heater should be 1500 watts and just like the other one it didn't draw quite the full 15. but you can see it's drawn uh you know 1330 Watts which is about 11 and a half amps we're still at uh you know 60 hertz 59.960 Hertz at 115 volts so turn it off and like I said originally I was gonna originated wasn't even planning on building a box like this but I had planned on buying a generator from the Nationwide tools store company which was their 9 500 watt inverter generator that did not have any gauges on it well I ended up going with the Gen Max 9000 watt inverter which does have a gauge on it but by the time I decided to buy that generator I had already started collecting parts and pieces for this box and if anybody's interested I will uh kill the power and take the top off and show you the inside give me one second okay so just for fun we're going to take a quick look on the inside here I'll loosen these screws up when I made this box I completely drew the panel and all the openings in inkscape which is an illustrator program not a CAD program but I'm more familiar with inkscape so I use that and it's very similar to Adobe Illustrator it's the cheap free version inkscape and then I printed it on sticky back paper and glued it well just stuck it to the face of the panel here and then I was able to cut everything out and drilled all my holes everything I got it drawn out perfectly got it drilled out perfectly I nailed everything the first time there's nothing off it's turned it out perfect all right let's lift the cover off let me get the light turned back on anyway as you can see everything's pretty much color coded all the blacks for line one all the Reds for line two all the terminals were not insulated and then heat shrunk with the adhesive lined heat shrink tubing uh the two gauges come right off of Main Line power but they do immediately run through if you can see this right here they do immediately run through each gauge has its own three amp fuse and all the connections were made with uh lar this is all 10 gauge wire and all the connections were made with some blue wire nut caps first of all the joint was twisted tight with alignment pliers then the then the excess copper was cut down the wire nut was threaded on tight and tightened with the lineman pliers and then taped on and then the tape was held on with a with a zip tie and I know electricians get offended about using accessory tape but I don't care because there believe it or not and some electricians will tell you that's not true but believe it or not some electricians do use accessory tape anyway you can see it's basic circuitry like I said each gauge has its own if you can see that double pole single throw switch so each gauge is fed with its own power wire one from each hot and then you got your current Transformers down here feeding the gauges and then the power wires are fused each one of these Breakers 20 amp for 20 amp Outlets and then of course you got the feed through Outlet up on top here to continue on with power down the line I've put a handle on each side and uh some people might be wondering what these Chrome bars are for up on top here and honestly I can't take credit for that uh when I was searching online for something I forget what it was a picture it popped up of the control box for some sort of an automated Machine Factory machine or something and the Box had these these Chrome bars on it Well turns out that it works real good so if the Box goes upside down none of that stuff that switch the gauge the outlets nothing nothing will hit hit the ground hard and it protects the front of the box I've got a real nice rubber feet here on the bottom and there are a couple of chrome bars up on top in case this box goes down on end and lastly I really contemplated even making this video the last electrical accessory box I made you know a lot of people saw that video compared to the people who commented and very few people made negative comments and I I just blows my mind that somebody could be offended about something that I built for me you know I if you don't like this box you don't like my design you don't like my reason for making it that's fine I don't care if you don't need one for your situation then don't make one I I don't care if you want to build a box that solves other sets of problems that I'm not dealing with and you've got other needs for other things then build a box that fits your needs I I don't care anyway I took some heat in that last video I contemplated even release in this video but uh we'll see how it goes we'll see how it goes leave a comment and let me know how this would benefit you or if you'd like one for yourself I don't make them I'm not in production for them but uh you know if I had a a want or a need for one of these I'm sure other people would find a use for it too just let me know let me know what you think that's all I got for now please be sure to like share and

7. Mean Mother 12v Power Distribution Box – Unboxing & first impressions

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Mean Mother 12v Power Distribution Box - Unboxing & first impressions

hey guys this is my unboxing and I'll do a little bit of an installation and review on this this is a 12 volt power distribution box that I got from mean mother I bought this through out back equipment it cost me about 160 dollars so my rationale for buying this I know a lot of people sales guess which panel and so on I've got my dual battery in my canopy unfortunately where the battery box had to sit is right up by the cabin side of the vehicle and obviously instead of climbing in and out every time I want to plug something in I was going to run a cable between the dual battery and this box and this will sit right by the tailgate then I can easily just lean in and plug things in so one of the things that appealed to me about it is that it can actually care up to 7 outlets at once so it's powered by an anderson plug so just anderson layered there which is i'll either cut that off and splice it into another longer cable directly into the battery box with a circuit breaker or I'll just join that to LAN some plugs so I can just remove this if I want to later on so yes this does have up to ability to power 7 outlets at once so there's anderson lead there of 2 USBS twin merit plugs and then on the sides you've got 6 sockets there as well it also has an LCD screen which you can display the voltage and the amp draw as well so I thought I would make one of these videos because I haven't seen any videos on these devices on YouTube and the information online was pretty sparse about them so hopefully this might give everyone else out there a bit of the goddess to what these things are about and if they're worth the investment mean mother a pretty good brand new I haven't heard any bad things about them so I've seen one other brand do a different version of this just the voltmeter and the anderson plug was switched around so the answer and plug sat on top be given where I'm gonna sit one which is mounted sideways on my fridge box I was a bit hesitant about having my instant plug be exposed and can potentially get swiped off by something I'm shopping down the side of the canopy so I thought this might be a better option so anyway we will unbox it I haven't actually looked at this yet so it's good right so first impressions are that that is a very very Miki power cord at the back of that so that's going to be pretty durable against everything I think it's good not sturdy design on a - it's a-okay feels like a really thick thing I think with plastic feels like a really thick plastic boat so it's nice and sturdy and I'm going to say I've got base plates on there for mounting up which is going to come in handy cuz I'm going to make mine sideways like so so it's gonna sit like that so I still be able to read the LCD display we compare everything else I'm actually going to most likely mount the fridge box this is gonna be mounted on the side of I'm gonna mount a travel buddy oven up on top of it so my theory is I could just plug one of these six sockets on the side directly into it so if you keep it on nice neat weight is good it's not overly heavy or anything like that but same time does it feel flimsy we have a very nice yeah this this plugs pretty impressive cable sorry looks nice and waterproof and dustproof and everything as well which is good so if I sit it up on its end Estero to be tricky that cable so I've got the anderson plug in the middle there I might potentially see if I can get a little dust cover for that and I know you can get it on much softer modify one to sit it in there so I'm not gonna have something in that all the time even though my cabin my canopy stories pretty dust proof like yeah I'll see if I can get something for that anyway so I got the USB ports are in there so they've got nice little dust proof covers on them which is good and Merrick plugs over there on the other side I'm not really sure why the Merrick plugs are on the front and not on the side consider hanging out the sink sockets on the side and again not secure they're not spring loaded they are nice and secure caps over them they properly click in they feel very well they'll be very dust proof in that the merits are spring-loaded yeah I'm just do only query it's not certainly not a complaint is what I've got the merit plugs on the front and not the side I would have had them the other way around unless it's a space thing it's bit to my knowledge most stuff in Australia 12-volt is still a their hands and plug or your cig sockets so I would have thought that would have got more use you know the side but anyway that's all right we'll have a look now I've got my got an outlet here I'll plug it in well fire it up and have a look and all right guys so now I got the main mother P our box hooked up as to his companion battery boxes here I'll just try that one I will fire it up and have a look at her she upright so I got a couple of devices I'll plug in there a different style feedings animal to see how she operates so like this on all right so you see nice and bright LED display there so show me the voltage at the moment off the battery box that's twelve point four which is good so it will also alternate between the voltage and the amp draw once you've got devices hooked in so I'll actually show you in real time what you've got coming out of the system based on what you have plugged in which can come in handy especially if you've got some variable load devices plugged in there such as you know have fridges or devices that might be drawing a bit more power than others keep a track of what's taken up all year juice so I'll plug one of these in first - just read - can my wife's coach I've been promising her to put in for ages now I should probably do that soon so I'll just plug that in there nice good quality feeling six sockets as well some of the cheaper ones you can get well as you know sort of feel a bit loose in there so it's nice and tight which is good so as you can see now that the voltage announced Olson aiding the amp drop which is only 0.2 of an amp so bugger off so that's that's pretty good that's powering that dash cam now I've also just got a pair of headphones which I'll just run off the USB now I did have a play with this before and this part the USB covers they're great but I think maybe it's just because it's new but they're very difficult to keep open you've actually really an effort to hold it open and get the plug in at the same time so you might just be because it's new might be because it's just a bit of a design thing but we'll see how we go of course USB I'll put it around the wrong way the first one so yeah again fitting feels nice and secure though which is ultimately pretty important that LED display yeah that's a bit more accurate there that's boy how it's looking to the naked eye the camera does noise shot there's clearly is it actually showing out that's actually quite bright too so that would be nice and easy to read at nighttime or um you know if you're just sticking your head in the back of the canopy so all in all looks pretty good I'm pretty happy with it I think well I'll put another video up or another post on my Instagram page smash rj4 Drive if you want to have a look at the final position where I'm going to mount it I might come back and do a bit of a longer-term review on this - and a couple of months time just give everyone out there a bit of feedback like I said I couldn't find much information on this product when I was hunting around so hopefully yeah you guys can take new photo and help make your mind up if you come across it alright guys thanks Jesus

 

8. North American split-phase breaker box (23 – Electricity Distribution)

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: North American split-phase breaker box (23 - Electricity Distribution)

In this video we're going to trace the flow of electricity from this pole transformer over into the house behind me. As you can see at the top of the transformer, we have one connection from hot to the bushing and then on the side of the transformer, we have two hots and one neutral. The three cables run over here to the other pole, where they branch off into several houses. One of those branches goes down the pole, underground, and up through the conduit here under the electricity meter. The three cables from the pole come up through this piece of conduit and into the electricity meter. This little piece of conduit right here just next to the meter carries the ground rod. The ground rod is basically a piece of copper that's just buried down in the ground. This is what it looks like before it's put into the ground. This bare piece of copper up at the top is what runs through the small piece of conduit. Right here inside the meter, neutral is bonded to the earth ground. There’s also another piece of conduit just behind this meter that leads inside to the breaker box. Let's go inside and take a look. We're inside now and we're going to see how the electricity flows out to individual branch circuits through this box. Before I take the cover plate off, though, I just wanted to point out that this particular box is very nicely labeled, so it's clear which particular circuit breaker goes with which circuit. I’ve already loosened up these screws ahead of time, so it should be relatively easy to get this plate off. There’s a piece of conduit right there that leads to the meter outside provided by the utility company. There are three cables entering the house through that conduit: two black wires and one white wire. The two black wires are hot and the white wire is neutral. The black wires are 180 degrees out of phase with one another. Let’s measure the voltages between all of these cables. If I measure the rms voltage between the two black wires, I see that it's 246 volts rms. Nominally it's 240 volts, which is typical for a split phase system. Let’s measure the voltage difference between the middle hot and the white color here at the right. I’m measuring 122 volts rms. Nominally that's 120 volts. Let’s try it for the left hot. 121 volts rms for the left hot. We have the main circuit breaker here for the house and if you look just below the main circuit breaker, you can see two busbars extending out here from the bottom. Those are bonded to two copper plates which run behind the branch circuit breakers over here. They’re staggered so that it's not the case that all of these circuit breakers are attached, for example, to one phase and all the circuit breakers here are attached to the other. They're staggered, so that if you put two breakers side by side, one of the breakers will get one phase and the breaker right above it will get the other phase. The advantage of that is by putting two circuit breakers side by side, you can get 240 volts in a two-pole breaker like this. We can see that this two-pole breaker here is labelled "range" and that gets 240 volts. We can also see that it has relatively thick wires coming out of the switch side, one black and one red indicating that both of them are hot. Most of the other circuit breakers here are just one pole circuit breakers. For all of these one pole circuit breakers, the hot is attached to the back side of the circuit breaker, unlike the situation in continental Europe or in Singapore, where the hot wire goes directly into the breaker and then the switch top comes out the other side. The switched side of the circuit breaker is over here on the right. So, all of the cables running here on the right of the circuit breakers here and on the left side over there lead to the branch circuits. So, they distribute electricity out through the house and then when they come back, we have two cables from each branch: neutral and ground. In Singapore and continental Europe, there would be a neutral bar to gather all the neutrals and then a ground bar to gather all the earth cables together, but here in North America, they're all attached to a single bar. You can see, sometimes, white cables and also bare cables lead to that bar, so neutral and earth are really bonded together right here in the box. They lead out through this neutral wire outdoors, which ultimately attaches to a grounding rod bound into the earth and also to the system neutral up on the pole. You might notice that we also have a small box here on the side of the breaker. This is for a doorbell; it's just a transformer. The primary side is down here at the bottom, and the secondary side is up here at the top. If you look at the primary side, we have two wires going to it. One of those wires is attached to the hot side of a breaker and the other side on the primary is attached down here to the neutral bar. The secondary side of the transformer is attached to a cable that’s at 16 volts that leads to a doorbell. I hope that by viewing this video you've learned something about the typical split phase circuit breaker box here in North America. We have a whole series of professionally filmed and edited videos in order to help students learn the fundamentals of electricity. If you liked watching this particular video, then you might like to check out some of our others too.
