Would someone be so kind as to define the following terms for me?

Service Entrance (Where does it start?)
Servicehead
Service Drop
Riser
Weatherhead
Mast

I know it's a lot, but I'd be most grateful.

OKAY, NEC doesn't describe the following (my definition included):
  • Mast (conduit rising from the meter socket to the weatherhead/servicehead)
  • Riser (same as Mast)
  • Servicehead (a.k.a. service cap; the thingy at the top w/ the three holes for the SE conductors to come out and tie into the Drop)
  • Weatherhead (same as servicehead)
I actually found the others
