  • 4 schools in the CASCAB completed several renovations in past years including building, mechanical, and electrical system improvements and installations
  • Majority of the newly installed plugs, switches, and electrical circuits were left without labels identifying the electrical panel and circuit number
  • Pre-existing were re-routed and sourced from different electrical panels than what was labeled and identified on both panel and device

The Circuit IQ Solution

Updated missing or existing labels
Roughly 30% of existing device labels showed the wrong electrical source or missing entirely. Existing device labels were not updated during renovations, and the resulting condition created a more dangerous situation than no label at all! This was fixed and updated by CircuitIQ.

Digital and physical, panel directories & labels
Existing panel card directories and as-built drawings were digitally scanned and uploaded to each project, providing online shareable access and data retention. 35 panel cards printed, 35 panels and over 1500 receptacles and light switches labeled.

Back on schedule
Traditional methods would take weeks to complete and no method to display that information. CircuitIQ was able to map each circuit in a single pass and used an automated label printing system to save time, effort and human error.
