Service Entrance can be a magical equipment

Many of the people who use the electrical components way too frequently would be aware of how much use is this service entrance is.  Usually, the homes will have three kinds of wires going on. The two of them will be carrying 120 volts each which sums up to 240 volts. While the other wire will have have to be grounded to make the other two grounded. The cables are hung on top of each other because then it is named as service drop. The service drop is a connection which links these wires at a service head level to the home’s exterior.

Know the function of hot wires

People often confuse hot wires with neutral ones. The hots are the main wires which carry the electrical current to the circuit devices from the main service panel. While the neutral’s job is to carry the reverse current to the service panels from the home. They can be distinguished from their colors while they are hot and black. The other wires can represent the neutral ones and in most of the cases are denoted by white color.

Ground wires

These are the safety alert wires which paves the way to a secure connection and lets the current flow equally in a short circuit path. The electrical surge and the fire hazards can be prevented by the help of ground wires. This can be found at the end of the panel. In the modern house settings the ground wire can be found at a lot of junctions which terminate at some ground/soil level. 

The basic termination point for the griund wire is at the earth position. The safety of the dissipated voltage may be the metal electrical boxes which will conduct the voltage. The house wirings and the metal water pipes can be conducive enough to support the cause of the ground wires.


The elevtric meters are the boxes which are mounted at the exterior location of the homes. The lateral cables are one of the main transport which are used to measure how much of the electicity is transported. This doesn’t have to be situated outside but can be in the breaker box itself. The type may vary depending upon what is needed by the users. They are available in two types analog and digital which is easily available and read by the companies.

The basic utility of the business starts from the power lines which goes back to the base of the switch. The homes can be collectively combined to the main service where the supplies enter. The electric meter’s junction is capable of recording and maintaining the basic monthly bills and power supply consumption.
