Looking for some advice on what I've discovered is the electrics situation in my rental property.
I'll note that before I moved in here I made the Letting agents (LA) more than aware I use an absolute ****-ton of power. I told them I can and will be pulling 2,000-4,000 kWh a quarter (with gas...
I assembled a liquid level control on the workshop bench this morning. I was in a rush so I just put the two 11-pin liquid level relays and 8 terminals on a loose piece of DIN rail, wired them up and quickly plugged it in the the bench supply to test it.
I left it in the hands of my newest guy...
Hi Guys (And Gals)
I am not a qualified electrician. But, I did work as a hardware/software technician with various companies for about 6 years. I still work in general maintenance (for a company) today, so I'm sometimes called upon to fix general electrical faults like lighting failures and...
Customer reports sporadic nuisance tripping of RCD. I cannot reproduce it, or fault anything, except SOMETIMES on EFLI test it trips the RCD (megger mft 1553 'no trip' test).
I'm out of ideas here, can anyone help? This is what I've got:
- TT installation (small domestic);
- 30mA RCCB...
So last year we bought a house and didn't go through and label the fuses. There are 15 in the box.
The previous owners wanted to install an infra-sauna in the upstairs bathroom, and put in a cable but never put in the sauna. This was turned off at the fuse box, but we never paid attention...
hi I recently qualified as domestic installer with part p, inspection and testing level 2, 17th edition, pat testing level 3 in test and management.
They can't teach you everything, not possible, so I will ask some seemingly daft questions, please be gentleish with replies.
I need some...

When to a job this moring RCD had tripped, narrowed it down to the kitchen sockets, but found that the RCD stayed on for about 20-30 seconds before tipping out. Unplugged everything, so I thought.
Tested the RCD 1x 37ms - 36ms. 5x 11ms - 13ms. Ramp test 19.6 mA.
Then I realised the...

Addressable fire panel, that will support at least 20 apollo devices (12 smoke heads, 2 heat detectors, 5 break glasses)

Previous house basher for 4 years and qualified in that area. Started my new job this week and i am wiring up a flour mill. ITS HUGE, we have a production mill factory with about 4 new motors and 6 sensors wiring back to a plc unit. I have to say i am enjoying the work and seem to be getting on...
My understanding is that everything should be RCD protected now, as it is unlikely that all the criteria is met for it to not need RCD protection.
I went to my friends house the other day and the consumer unit had a periodic inspection and test carried out by the local council last...
A Happy 2014 to you all.
I've recently had two calls to trace the cause of intermittent tripping in domestic installations, and failed miserably!
The latest - 4 way box feeding garage, utility room, garden shed. Customer reckons it sometimes trips when they switch the light on, but can...
