16a C type breaker as 1.44 ohms
10a C type breaker as 2.30 ohms
80a C type breaker as 0.28 ohms
I believe he’s calculated Zs by doing (in the case of 16amp c...
Hi guys, I've been doing a bit of research into electrical software/apps as an alternative to the really bad Stroma software (Tracker Mobile) I currently have, I've sampled EasyCert Mobile which I found really straight forward however the layout in which it asked the questions didn't follow the...
Hi for a ring circuit, is there any need to measure and enter R1 + R2 values on a schedule of results ? Because an r2 value is already measured (together with r1 and rn). If I needed a ring R1 + R2 value to calculate ZS (although i would find ZS with a socket tester so really no need; but if I...

Im just wondering on schedule of test results form what do I put down for size of cpc for MICC cable and for SWA cables if the armour is used solely for the cpc?
I'm sure that somehow there must be procedure.
I'm just writing up an EICR from last month, one of the findings was a lighting circuit on the non RCD side of the board where the cpc was used as a strapper in 2 way light switching, Ive marked it as C2 for two reasons, one being that there is no longer a cpc in the cable and also that...
