What is the difference in commercial, residential, and industrial electricians?

An electrician is not a “one size fits all” profession because there are many differences among commercial, residential, and industrial electricians. For each type of job, an electrician will use different wiring techniques due to energy needs, equipment used, and load demands. Also, commercial, residential, and industrial electricians abide by different procedures and different materials. That is why it is so important to make sure you are hiring the right type of electrician to get the job done for you.

Industrial Electricians

Residential Electricians
Obviously, residential electricians work in homes. They differ from industrial and commercial electricians because they use single phase power supplies (120-240 volts). Residential electricians run romex cables and keep the wiring hidden from view by wrapping their wiring in sheathed insulation. This approach minimizes exposure and damage to the wires, and, most importantly, protects homeowners from electrical shock.

Commercial Electricians
Stores and offices are where you will find a commercial electrician installing power outlets and lighting. By using a three-phase approach, their wiring has two smaller “legs” running one voltage and a larger “leg” running a higher voltage. Thus, the three-wire systems allows an overall lighter workload. The wiring done by commercial electricians remain exposed; however, it is typically run along the exposed sides of ceilings and walls.

Industrial Electricians
Basically, an industrial electrician is the same as a commercial electrician but works in factories, chemical plants, and mines. Industrial electricians also use a three-phase power set up. The main difference is that they mostly work with RMC conduit that powers control circuitry as opposed to running MTC or MC cables.

Here at Schaffhouser Electric we have quality industrial and commercial electricians for all of your wiring needs. Whether it is a store, office, factory, or plant, we will get the job done right!

What are the qualities of a good industrial or commercial electrician?

Schaffhouser Electric employs many quality industrial and commercial electricians. For our current customers and prospective customers, we want to explain the qualities that all of our industrial and commercial electricians possess to perform the jobs and repairs you need accomplished at your business or plant.

Commercial Electrician

The tasks conducted by our industrial and commercial electricians range from testing and maintaining current electrical equipment to understanding new technologies, such as robotics and other newly developed equipment to perform the job needed to be accomplished.

So, what are the qualities of an excellent industrial or commercial electrician?

• Most importantly, an electrician working in industrial and commercial sites is always well educated and studies to increase his or her skill set in specialized electrical machinery, including robotics. Due to their relentless effort during apprenticeships and other educational processes, electricians tend to specialize in one or two specific areas to excel in the industrial or commercial field.

• Quality industrial and commercial engineers are clear thinkers who can work in cramped, difficult conditions where large pieces of equipment require them to climb to great heights to get the job done right.

• Even though quality industrial and commercial electricians are highly specialized in their respective areas, they are still team players. Being a part of team is critical because it is crucial that these electricians are great communicators to not only their supervisors but also their customers. Without proper communication skills, a productive, harmonious workplace will not be maintained. A huge component of this team is a quality industrial or commercial electrician.

• Industrial or commercial electricians are required to be flexible with their work hours because they are often required to work on problems that may arise outside of normal business hours in order to keep the business or plant running efficiently. Machinery does not always choose the most ideal time to be repaired, but a quality industrial or commercial electrician will always be ready to make that repair to ensure equipment continues to run at its full potential.
