Hi All,
Thank you for welcoming to this forums

I just want to clarify that the Value I need to enter 100% or 80% in the last column "Maximum Zs Permitted by BS7671"
is it 80% from the table 41.3 from 18th Edition Regs - Page 62 or the value from Pocket Guide 18

Thank you
Loges

I was taught to put the 80% down. And that’s what I’ve always done.

This was discussed in a previous thread and some said 100% others 80%.

I don’t think it really matters as long as you know which your using on the comparison to the actual Zs read and you know what your doing.

If a 30ma RCD is incorporated along with the overcurrent device then technically the maximum permitted Zs is 1667 ohms, but you almost never see this applied to TN systems, most incorrectly use the max Zs for the OCPD.
411.4.5.......411.4.204 and table 41.5 apply to TN systems.

If the certificate asks for "Maximum Zs Permitted by BS7671" then you put down the 100% figure from the book as that is what it is asking for.

As Strima says, you put down the value found in BS7671.
This is so the customer gets confused when the measured value is less but it still fails.

but then you confuse them even more by telling them it's oK, with RCD it's 1667.
