Last week's question had some great discussion so I need to follow up with another question this week.

Have you experienced counterfeit electrical equipment? Either during bidding, or construction or anywhere? Stories are great!

It would be interesting to compile a list of equipment most known for counterfeiting.

Counterfeit is claiming to be something it is not. I have come across arc flash clothing, with supporting test certificates that are not correct or copied from other products.
The biggest one I have come across is electrical insulating matting and blankets which is just ordinary rubber matting/blankets untested. Though this is not arc flash and only secondary protection, it is shocking the levels of counterfeit on this product.
