At one time or another, you've likely wondered how the heck did this company come up with their electrical labeling? I certainly have. Is there a labeling convention the electrical engineers use that I don't know about or does each engineer invent his own method? I've seen labeling from simple numbers for each panel to complex methods that are based on floor level, emergency or normal, UPS power - well the list is long. Does anyone have a logical labeling system?

NFPA 70E sec. 130.5H and NEMA Z535 both have standards for labels. I guess it's up to the designer about the order of some of those things?
