Carrying out a EICR. Stumbled on 2 x portacabins. Testing the ring in bottom portacab to find an SY 2.5mm has been spurred off the dado sockets, exits the bottom cab clipped externally upto the top of the top cab and supplies an LED flood. Automatically i thought its wrong. No spur. But im now thinking C3. Its a fixed load. It supplies 1 x light on the top of a high level portacabin. What are peoples thoughts? Obviously Zs commplying. The DB is inside the cab for local isolation.

The fuse is to protect the cable. If its a fixed load theres no chance of overload to the cable. The ocpd in db will supply fault protection. Additional RCD too.
it is your judgment to say c2 or c3 you the one that signs the test certs .

now let me think about that, 3amps or higher amps ,you choose.
Sarcasm on high today?

It was genuine question.

Plus I still don't see how that makes it dangerous. It's not ideal and requires improvement but I wouldn't consider it dangerous. Unless you can explain it to me (sarcasm omitted)
