New aspect of the trade.

Immersed a bit about programmable logic and motor controls, which is what we're doing in class but it's so completely different that what I'm used to, as far as the electrical trade is concerned. I'm used to solid wire, 4-square boxes, MC and PVC; here, it's stranded wire, DIN rail, rigid conduit, Rob-Roy...I could go on.

I'm learning but seriously, I feel like a first year all over again. Industrial work is not only different as far as material goes, but even the pace is different. It's not any more difficult, it's just something to which I've never been exposed. Frustrating.
