As you have installed a circuit and we are now working to the 17th you should put 101 etc and not the A/C.

Tis what i do now anyway.

However, im not with the NIC and my certs dont even ask for this info.

The "A B C" method is for your cert, the 101, 102 etc is for working out the current carrying capacity of your cable i.e. worst case along the entire length of the cable run.


Try not to confuse your assessor with these sort of questions - many aren`t as clever as you would suppose..........:rolleyes:
 
i use the computer based certs and there isnt enough space to enter 101 etc so ive stuck with abc etc ;)

Have to say im not convinced about the letters thing as they dont appear to be listed anywhere in the new regs.

I aint got me book to hand but I remember a few that I use - method 3 - clipped direct, method 6 - horizontal trunking run, method 7 - vertical trunking run. Also I do put 101 for T+E in insulation plus 6 or 7 if it runs in trunking.

So what about Table 4A2 Page 265?

know what your saying jason but i would still put a c ;)
unless all of your circuit is run as per the numeric method but i find that highly unlikely with switch drops etc, most will be clipped direct

I suppose if we were going to be exact, and there was the room, we would put both!

Clear as mud as usual:D:D

you got it lol
think what ever way you look at it the old letter method is better as its not so definitive.
youve got more chance of your circuit being clipped direct than recording method 101 for your loops and 102 for your drops :eek:
