    Rated Current and Current in mini split AC

    Hello, I am seeing two mini split ACs with the same cooling capacity in two different company. Both 24000 BTU and Inverter. The first one said Rated Current is 9.56 A and didn't write Max current or current. The second one said the Current is 9.9 A and the Rated Current is 16 A. Does it mean...

    UK Change in current capacity along run

    Hi, I have a book on domestic wiring which says that everywhere there is a change in current carrying capacity along a circuit there must be some kind of protection (fused spur etc). Suppose I need to run above an insulated ceiling (reference method 101) and then down a wall (reference method...

    AC vs DC, live vs neutral

    Hi. I've read much about ac vs dc but can't find a 'simple' answer. If current alternates 50 times per second in a uk mains circuit, why do live and neutral not swap 50 time per second? On these forums, I've read that it does, so that copper does not migrate as it would in a dc circuit. I've...

    What do I search for on Amazon: WIFI continuity Switch No current, no load

    I have a bathroom fan with a moisture detector that turns it on and off. It also has a control circuit to turn it on/off when moisture is not connected. This is a no voltage/no current circuit. I want to add a parallel control circuit that would of course be no load no current that I can turn...

    Why I get only one phase reading current while rest are zero

    Hi I have UPS 50KVA and the inverter output AC voltage is feeding a distribution panel 120/208 V 4 wires when I check UPS display it shows me that output current which is the distribution panel phases as followings phase one = 30A while Phase 2 = 0A and phase 3 = 0A is this a problem !? Shall...

    UK What does the current landscape for mobile apps look like?

    Hi All I'm a professional mobile app developer. Around 12-13 years ago I created a couple of apps for the fire protection / safety industry that a few people found useful. I put those to one side as I found myself switching careers to be a full time developer and skilling up required the whole...

    Eddy currents in metal trunking

    Hi all. I am installing some metal trunking vertically in a meter cupboard to contain all the meter tails for an apartment block. I have 5 sets of tails entering one “row” of meters, and about 300mm further down the trunking I have another 4 sets of tails entering the other row of meters. Due...

    Current flow in neutral but no voltage ?

    Having a challenge understanding the concept behind why when you measure across line and neutral (live circuit) using voltage indicators we have voltage reading of 230V single phase. If there is current flow in the neutral why is it termed as 0V ? On that basis, second question - If I tested...

    Will 12vac replacing 120vac mitigate stray current situation?

    I have an inground pool with a 22 year old, 120vac light fixture in a niche connected to water-holding conduit running to a switch in an outbuilding. I removed the fixture to clean the niche. The fixture was just floating at the surface, still connected, with the wall switch off. A little extra...
