Needs to be accessible Josh. and if you are stuffing Wagos in trunking it can't be accessible without removing the trunking lid, better to bring it out into a suitable enclosure marked up effectively. All very well knowing there is a joint, but where exactly???? sorry to disappoint others but that's my take, could be searching for hours otherwise, come on guys get real.Would it be against regulations to put wagos into some maxi trunking to extend cables for a board change?
No need MateSorry Pete... your post wasn't up when I started typing mine... I'll get me coat..
Like I said PeteCan’t think of anything wrong with that regs wise.
I think it would be better to take the existing cables into an enclosure (j/b) and connected extensions from there.
But an adaptable enclosure with strain relief and connections inside would look neat.Surface mounted cables come from under the stairs about 200mm and stright into the old board so wanted to have it that i could pushed into the void if that makes sense and do the joints in the trunking. Look rough if i just had 8 JBs in a cupboard?
Not sure on the exact IP rating for Wagos but if used correctly you should have no exposed copper wire or live parts to touch. They are fully sealed unit.
Section 412 is relevant to double insulated systems only. I'm making an assumption but I'm guessing the protective measure used in this case will be ADS.
aDon't you guys read the//Why not just a large enough adaptable box with wago din push in things? Trunking either side of it if theres space?
Because if you know the joint is in the CU then, not far to look for it, however in trunking where do you start looking?Surely it's no different to extending a T&E inside a consumer unit using some wagos, etc. where it's a bit short. And the joint is accessible by just popping the trunking lid off, which is no more difficult than opening an MF enclosure.
It's an interestring point. However, "devils advocat" - it's possible to remove the grille of a 600x600 flouresent (and most 4ft and 5ft's) to access live terminals. Eithert by undoing a knurled screw on the 4/5ft's, or simply sliding the diffuser out on a 600x600....
Those terminals will still be IP2X though.It's an interestring point.
