If you are looking for installation pictures of electrical conduits, you have come to the right place.
This post is one of the firsts of the type that I call “anchor posts” for this site.
An anchor post is simply an anchor for all the related posts and materials that I will upload on a particular subject matter.
It is a way that I found most suitable for me to keep my blogs growing, given the limited and poor quality time that I can spare to keep my blogs alive and useful to readers and visitors.
Often I found one or two photos that I felt would be useful to someone. However, it would seem too trivial to send a post just to publish that one or two pictures.
With an anchor post, I could just immediately add the new pictures to an already existing post on the same subject matter with minimal additional texts or comments.
At other times, I might have a set of related pictures on an important subject matter. However, I just could not find enough time to spare to write an article for them.
In that situation, I would normally select one or two pictures and add them to a related anchor post.
Later, when I have the time to write, I would go through the anchor posts and select one or two pictures on topics I could write something about as a new article.
Of course, the new article would be a stand-alone post with additional pictures, diagrams or other images and information as necessary.
The new post and the original anchor post would be linked to each other. That way if a reader just bookmark an anchor post on the subject matter that she’s interested in, she can easily and quickly come back to check if I have posted new pictures or other information on that subject.
In a way, an anchor post will initially appear to be simply a collection of pictures and images on a single web page.
That is also true.
However, over time each one of them will grow into a link page that links to all other related pages and materials on this site.
I know I can accomplish the same thing with more flexibility on today’s content management systems including WordPress (which is the platform for this site) using Tags, Categories, etc, etc.
However, for some unknown reasons I just prefer this old manual method. Maybe I am just too old-fashioned.
Okey … That’s what I call an anchor post. ‘
Now let’s go back to the electrical conduit picures.
Update July 25,2016: The new anchor post for pictures on this subject will be this post: Electrical trunking and conduit installations.
For building works, electrical conduits and trunking go hand-in-hand. They are always together in pictures taken. It will be easier to upload them if I keep them in the same anchor post.
The sheer quantities of these two materials used in a building underline the why I need to have both terms present in the title of this post. It will help a lot in getting this post to the front pages of the search engine results.
Picture 02 – A close-up view showing the couplers
This pictures is a zoomed out view to show the connection couplers between the G.I. conduit and the electrical accessories.
Take note that identification labels are provided on the front covers of the light switch and socket outlet.
This is an increasingly becoming a common practise even in a small installations like this one, a 33kV substation building.
Picture 03 – Close up view of the saddle
The saddle hook in this close up picture is the most common method of fixing surface mounted conduit that I know.
The saddle is fixed to the wall using two screws, holding the conduit in place. In my opinion this is the best method to fix a conduit to a building wall.
Picture 04 – Conduit connection to a steel trunking
Actually I wanted to show examples of electrical conduits connecting to a steel trunking. So this example here may not be the best example because the distance between the round draw-box and the trunking is so close that only the conduit coupler can fit in.
However, it is still a good example because it is still showing how a connection can be made between an accessory and a steel trunking. This accessory here is a key-switch for a motorized fire roller shutter for the 33kV substation.
Picture 05 – Just a closer view of the key-switch
Okey, guys. That is all I have for today. See you again very soon.
