    Voltage optimizers any good?

    Hi. Are they any good and how do they work? Do they lower the voltage across the board? If so what about appliances that use more than 220v? Thanks Spynage

    How does Touch voltage work without RCD protection

    Hi everyone I asked my assessor about touch voltage and he was not keen on explaining properly and gave me a rough answer which made me think probably he was not sure himself or was hiding it. basically my understanding is afcourse that how 30mA RCD works to limit touch voltage to 50V is by...

    What is this small voltage between spa water and natural earth ground?

    I've noticed a strange voltage reading between the water in my spa and natural earth ground. The reading varies between .35VAC and .7VAC. My wife noticed a small shock from the water after inserting her finger in the spa while standing outside the spa. I tested the GFCI and it is working...

    Trimming voltage.

    Client of mine has himself about 195w of RGBW LED strip and a controller rated at 288w (24v) 😆 What's the easiest way to bring it in line, stick a 0.1 ohm resistor in line? Do all 4 elements of RGBW strip ever get used at the same time?

    Fluke voltage testers turning noise off?

    After some scoundrels robbed all my stuff I have had to get a new voltage tester. Two in fact. A fluke t150 and a a fluke t110. But unlike the ones I had these don't seem to have the ability to turn off the annoying bleeper. I have tried holding the light button for two seconds but it's no good...

    Low voltage in 120 circuit ?

    I have a voltage of 23v coming through a light socket in my house (There is a rely that is likely the cause but I’m not certain 1950s house) when I look up charts on how much energy it takes to power a light bulb it’s very low- or I’m not understanding something. I know the resistance on the...

    High Voltage advice (11KV)

    Hey all, looking for a bit of industrial electrical advice, I'm kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place at the moment, the company I work for are pressuring me to work on HV (11KV) against my will. They put me through a 4 day AP (approved person HV) course and as I was the only person who...

    Which voltage tester?

    I will start by apologising to @westward10 as he will have had to take time out to move this thread to the correct section. I am terrible at putting my threads in the right section and westward always moves them to the correct location. This time I did actually look... and look... and look...

    Prevent an AC controlled SCR from turning off at zero voltage of AC wave.

    Hi guys, I have used the following image circuit to control the load. AS you see the SCRs are controlled by AC signal and The opto-triac is always ON. If the load is a resistor, When the AC signal is positive the current passes through the SCR1 and when it's negative it passes through the SCR2...

    AC / DC voltage drops across Diode

    I am unable to find voltage drop of normal silicon diode(0.7v) on Voltmeters during Proteus Simulation. Also we consider 0.7v drop of diode equivalent to DC Source of 0.7v but DC voltmeter is not showing any output and AC Voltmeter shows around 5 volts drop across diode instead of 0.7V.Kindly...
