Discuss Screened compartment trunking in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net
Disagree with the cable tray, i have never seen ELV and LV run on the same tray, you can cross through the dado and use a divider to separate the cables. If your using dado why cant you keep them separate?I know they shouldn’t be together in the same compartment but sometimes it’s unavoidable and crossing occurs. Also on long runs of cable tray you have the same issue.
Yes I’ve used it.Anyone come across screened compartment trunking before? If so is anyone aware of any specific reg governing the use of this, in regards to length of run allowed for lv cables in elv side?
I had a metre in my head but wasn’t sure if it was a regulation or not. So it’s just a rule of thumb. Thanks for clearing it up.Yes I’ve used it.
Not aware of an specific or non-specific Reg governing it’s use.
If ELV and LV cables are run in the same containment, the insulation of both should be rated at the highest voltage.
Rule of thumb, is that data and LV cables should not be together for more than 1 metre.
