have a list next to DB of circuit numbers/descriptions which are cut into cable as roman numerals. and other various marks for feed/load etc (note: this is temp marking for me to ID them prior to connection)

if it still needs marked, i have a marker or some numbered tape,

I`m with our beloved Admin; scraping (usually with cutters) onto outer sheath.

However, I usually scribe roman numerals.

Unless there are MLXMVIII circuits; in which case I used different colours of tape; primarily when installing from scratch - i.e. a 130 final circuit dist panel; I used 4 colours of tape on both ends of each cable; in order to keep the idents straight.

I find it very difficult when panel wiring to mark using anything other than cable markers.

If its a house I use my side cutter to notch the cable, this is easy as in the house there are limited circuits maximum 12 on larger installs.

The cable markers I buy are a bit expensive at around

This board is fed from the main db via 25mm cable with two other db fed from this one in 16mm each.

I prefer to use tpn boards mainly for the added space and if needed could still supply via 3phase.

i agree on the extra space part! even with all those RCBO's, still loads of room
