    Different result every time

    Hi Has anyone considered that every time you do a continutity/earth loop test, on the same circuit you get a different result every time? I had an end to end test on a ring circuit today and kept pressing the test button. The results jump all over the place. How credible is any test if the...

    Just tested a bungalow and fond the power is all supplied by one radial 2.5mm circuit rated at 32A on a fuse not MCB. Was thinking C2, there are only 15 points in the on the circuit and most re not used. will be carrying out a full rewire in a couple of weeks any way. If I reduce the fuse size...

    Loop tests and RCD's

    Had an old Fluke for years, which has incidentally been faultless . Company purchased a Megger last year however when doing Internal earth fault loop impedance readings are far higher than expected. I.e..example Ze = 0.20ohms r1 + r2 = 0.15ohms Zs should be about 0.35ohms however coming...

For instance, with the 2394/2395 Multiple choice, you can receive the result straight away (from the centre), & the "Notification of candidate result" is then sent to you. Is this...
