    EICR - Code 1 or 2 - for unenclosed conductors in choc-blocs?

    Hi all, I've got a couple of examples of this; on a domestic EICR. I'm on the fence with the coding - C1 or C2. There is no copper showing on the live parts - but I wouldn't like to grab it. I just want to be consistent with this - I mean if it was just bare conductors twisted together...

    2 conductors in the same Wago connector hole

    I've just watched a video on youtube about installing a bathroom extractor fan off of the light switch. In it the guy says how much easier this is when you use Wago connector blocks rather than a ceiling rose (about 7 and a half minutes in). He's using Wago 3-way lever connector 222 blocks...

    Protective conductors on an EIC

    Afternoon all. Can I confirm that a protective conductor in section 16 of an EIC refers to bonding to services etc rather than a cpc of a final circuit?

    6mm Earth and Main protective bonding conductors

    Just been to a 1981 TN-C-S installation to fit new CU. Both Earth and Main protective bonding conductors are 6mm, which I understand was typical back then. 16mm tails with 60A DNO fuse. Upgrading earth and bonding is gonna be tough as run up cavity and round the corner, I ain't never gonna pull...

    Conductors in parallel......

    I was at a job on Friday in a big 4 storey house. One of the jobs I was there to do was to add sockets to a bedroom which actually didn't have any at all. The top floor sockets were on there own breaker, a 32A RCBO actually. There were two 4mm^2 T&Es at the RCBO so I initially thought it was...

    Non standard colour of conductors... your thoughts on this?

    My aunt and uncle came over today and we got on to the subject of electrics, he had a guy come over to one of his shops to add four new shop light fittings everything was fine and the certificates were issued, but one things my uncle said thats lingered is that the building being over 30 years...

    Open pen conductors and future 18th edition considerations

    Electrical Safety First’s recent electrical installation safety roundtable focused on open-circuit PEN conductors, which serve as both a protective earthing and neutral conductor. Although PEN conductors within installations have been prohibited for some time now, older ones still remain in, for...

    just live & S/L conductors in a metal enclosure ?

    Hi I am installing a Teletask Micros+ metal enclosure Is it ok to bring just Live and SW Live conductors though a 400mm by 20mm slot cut in the rear of the enclosure ( sometimes cut in the base ) I know I have to bring L N CPC conductors through the same hole but the N and the CPC conductors...

    Connecting main protective bonding conductor into MET thoughts

    Any thoughts about connecting main protective bonding conductors into the MET instead of distribution boards? Watched a spark do it the other day and never really thought about it myself. Achieves the same result so it shouldn't be an issue.

    Testing

    Does it matter which method (method 1 or method 2) you use when testing for continuity of the circuit protective conductors? Or is each method dependent upon which the type of circuit you are testing on ring or radial? I have been told that test method 1 is used for lighting and radial...

    Continuity Tests

    Is the continuity test for circuit protective conductors, the same test for ring and radial circuits or is there a different test for each type of circuit? Also what is the difference between testing for cpc continuity and testing for continuity for ring final circuit conductors?

    2395 written exam question

    Hello, Sat my 2395 written exam tonight. Two of the questions caused quite a bit of confusion amongst a few of us that sat and dissected it afterwards. The question was relating to an insulation resistance test on a lighting circuit where it was stated that the fluorescent lights could be...

    Does it need it?

    hi everyone, I have got a job to do in a local hairdresser to change a consumer unit fed off an economy 7 meter. My question is do you need to test and notify the works like you would in a domestic dwelling? Also is it mandatory that the incoming services of water/gas are bonded with 10mm...

    EICR question

    Hi chaps, This may have been asked before but i cant seem to find it when searching so im sorry if someone easily finds it. Im currently carrying out a EICR at a commercial premises and the water is bonded from a sub DB and not the MET, its something that i understand needs to be noted but is...

    Domestic Interesting cable system

    Did some work on a sheltered housing style flat from the 80's today. It was wired in a type of 'cable' I don't think I've seen before, comprising a flat flexible thick rubber 'conduit' with 3 separate tunnels each containing a PVC single core of very high quality, the sizes of the conductors...

    Which Reg in the Yellow book

    Reg 433.1.204 Is in relation to Accessories to BS 1363 supplied through a Ring Final circuit etc and Appendix 15 gives Ring and Radial circuit arrangements. The minimum CSA is 2.5 mm (1.5 MI ) unless a FCU is used and it can be reduced! Just been asked to find the Reg which states 1.5mm CSA...

    my industrial inexperience?

    short story, I've come across a 3 phase distribution circuit wired in 4mm singles on 63a hrc fuses. I found this because 1 of the phases was on a 20a and had blown. this seams wrong to me but as I said I don't have much ind experience. this is a new circuit from a tap off box. also I don't want...
