 Wire Wrap Standards
I have an employee who tells me that it doesn't matter if he wire wraps the wire on the left side or right side of the pins on the frame in our CO. I tell him that the wire wrap gun wraps the the wire clockwise, and that we were taught to bring the wires down on the right hide and then wrap them on. With blocks that have wires run upward we bring the wire up on the left hand side of the pin and wrap it on. Is there any BSP or wiring specification that gives you the correct proceedure for wire wrapping x-connection wires on a frame in the CO.
