I work in Broadcast television as a broadcast systems designer. I have seen in recent months a trend that is worrying (not sure if it is legal) that in a 19" rack there could be several phases wired to power distribution outlets (normally via IEC connectors) This means it is imperative that colour coding and wiring practices are set in concrete if two pieces of equipment within inches of each other are powered from different phases. I always took the view that the phases should be separated by at least 2 metres or as it was recently that the racks in a row would have been wired Red, then the next rack would be Yellow and then Blue, to avoid accidental crossing of phases. I welcome all information and guidance on this subject and if you can point me to the right place for current documentation, my IEE wiring regs does not show this current trend.
