French term or phrase:tableau de chantier
And another type of board - this has to be installed before work begins on the electical system.
This is a heading: "Installations et tableau de chantier
Explanation: this "tableau" actually is, I'd go for Dusty's suggestion.
But to complicate matters, consider the following from voL 4 of Chudley's "Construction Technology" [Longman Sci & Tech], from the chapter on "Electricity on Building Sites":
<<The equipment which can be used to distirbute an elelctrical supply around a construction site is as follows:
1. Supply incoming unit (SIU) - supply, control, and distrbution of mains supply on site - accommodates supply board's equipment and has one outgoing circuit
2. - Main distribution unit (MDU) - control and distribution of mains supply for circuits of 415V three-^phase and 240V single-phase.
3. Supply incoming and distribution unit (SIDU) - a combined SIU and MDU for use on sites where it is possible to locate these units together.
... and the list goes on.
