Big difference between Electrical & Electronics...

There is a huge difference between the Electrical & the Electronics industry and methods. I have been an electrical contractor/electrician for 26 years. Some
of the answers in here are very funny.
Don't ask engineers to give you info on general electrical or installation help. If you ask them how to change a light bulb, you will get 50 different answers & someone will write a long response telling what kind of material the filament is made out of.

You should examine the argument on filament "heat" output.

People tend to think that being an Electrician is a subset of being an Electrical Enginer, and therefore everything the Electrician knows that Enginner should also know. Taint so. They are two totally different things. Well, there's overlap but not as much as you might think.
An electrican is trained to install, replace, troubleshoot, repair.
An engineer is trained to analyze, design, develop, test.
An engineer does NOT learn the following in college: soldering, wiring a house, troubleshooting a control panel, bending conduit.

As the "Bwuahahahahah..." kid failed to appreciate, I was not being condensending towards electricians. Just the opposite. In years past I worked with electricians, and any engineer with any sense at all listens real hard to what they have to say, because what they learn in their trade, and being hands on with equipment the engineer usually only sees in a catalog, is knowledge the engineer usually doesn't have. My point is the opposite, that electricians for some reason think the engineers should know both jobs, and that just is not usually the case.
