Big shout out to Delroy , his last video pre lockdown

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bh-oERoRSRM
 
Yeah Delroy is ok.

I like Luke Wichard

and of-course GSH that is the best channel and JW thats a good channel.

didn't take to Artisan nothing personal bro - very safety conscious I like that - you use to cut cables too short in your ccu changes ;)

What is it with these YouTube electricians and using bootlace Ferrell’s on twin and earth conductors?
And spacing out rcbos when the circuits aren’t even continuously loaded ?
Seems like once someone does something then they all copy each other.

Spacing RCBO’s? Surely, if they need to be spaced due to heat then there’s a design flaw?

they all tend to jump on the band wagon , when one does it on a video they all do it regardless of its any goodor not...
there was this big fad afew months back about running twin & earth in flexi tube for everything...even under kitchen units etc.
ferrells is another oddity they all seemed to jump on the wagon for N & Earth terminals when doing board swaps...
 
Yep that Ferrell was a good idea looks tidy and stops the conductor getting in a bad state after being removed alot for i.e testing etc.

I don’t see the point in reducing the surface area of a 6mm twin and earth cable into a smaller one , then inserted into the mcb. Also a ferrel end will receive the same treatment as a copper unferrelled conductor.
They are meant for treating fine stranded conductors.

You might have a point we're have to see how they look in 5/10 years time.

Yup, just like cables then.

Serious design flaw with cables, bunch them together and you have to down rate them.

These cable manufacturers ought to design them properly!

Or do you design the installation taking into account the RDF?

Hager’s manufacturer’s instructions states that the RDF doesn’t need to be taken into account for circuits that are not subject to continuous loading for more than 30 minutes
Very unlikely in a domestic installation.
Or rather
Note: RDF only applies to continuously and simultaneously loaded circuits.
In principle, this means adjacent circuit-breakers having a load ‘on’ time exceeding 30 minutes or where a load not exceeding 30 minutes has an ‘off’ time less than the ‘on’ time, will need to have the rated diversity factor applied as indicated.

If you design a domestic installation properly, you shouldn’t need to leave spacers between rcbos imo...
