Hello Operator has you take on the role of a telephone operator from the s, using an antique controller to manage dozens of impatient customers across a limited number of three or four phone lines. Intrigued, Joho sat down with creator Mike Lazer-Walker to ask him some of the questions that crossed her mind while she was playing the game. Is that something you were going for with this? But the work was too tiring and they were so gruff and so nasty that they then brought in the women instead. How can I make sure that you have an interesting story?
Definition[ edit ] The U. National Electrical Code NEC defines a switchboard as "a large single panel, frame, or assembly of panels on which are mounted, on the face, back, or both, switches, over-current and other protective devices, buses , and usually instruments" . The role of a switchboard is to allow the division of the current supplied to the switchboard into smaller currents for further distribution and to provide switching, current protection and possibly metering for those various currents. In general, switchboards may distribute power to transformers, panelboards, control equipment, and, ultimately, to individual system loads. Components[ edit ] Inside a switchboard there will be one or more busbars. These are flat strips of copper or aluminum, to which the switchgear is connected. Busbars carry large currents through the switchboard, and are supported by insulators.
