Doing new supplies for a school new Shneider 3 phase & N MCCB panel board. 50mm 4 core SWA one end made off in the board earth fly lead from banjo to earth terminal. The other end gland made off in gland (fly lead not made off yet) 3 phases and neutral just hanging there. Done installation resistance test to earth at 500v got 10Mohms to earth on all phases run is about 50mtrs?

What is it connected into at the board that’s made off? Thinking you’re reading through equipment.

Either that, or the cables damaged somewhere

As far as I am aware it's an Earth Leakage add on block
Not as far as I know a standard MCCB they don't do them in S.P. range is NSX MLG2.2 if that helps it has CT metering but as I posted nothing on end (load)

Did you try drying the exposed surface of the insulation between the bared ends of the cores and the gland? 10MΩ could just about be caused by condensation.

I think 'vgi' should read Vigi, Schneider's trade mark for their residual current add-on actuator.
