Discuss Measured kA on electraform EICS in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

All, evening to you. I’ve started using electraform for doing certs. Doing an EICS and in the test results part there is a column next to measured Zs marked measured kA. I might be being special, but I’m not sure what I’d put in here for each circuit. Looking at my spare manually completed forms, this column doesn’t exist. Am I missing something? TIA

EICR, not EICS :)
You'll measure the PFC and PSCC and record the highest reading in kA.

Yep, that makes sense: but the form is definitely an EICS, so is it asking me to give an PEFC/PSCC for every circuit. Done the PEFC /PSCC at the DB and that is annotated on the form. Just find it a little baffling.

EICS on electraform is a one signature EIC. Why is it baffling? When you do the Zs tests on each circuit enter the prospective fault current.

That makes sense, it’s just it’s naming of the column. Measured kA to me does not mean PFC.

agreee, esp. when the pfc is a fraction of 1kA.

I might have to speak to electraform, maybe measured pfc would make more sense as a name for the column.

I've never seen it either and am probably wrong but I fancied poking you with a stick anyway. :D

As a side note I'm sure you are ahead of me on the old and codgering front. :p

The 18th edition model forms, have a column in the section for protective device details, for Breaking Capacity (kA).
No column for measured kA.
