  2. I agree that it is better to take a unit with a 13A plug fitted. I agree that it is better to take a unit with a 13A plug fitted. But I am convinced that it is better not to go into the technique on your own. It is better to entrust this business to professionals. I had an unpleasant situation - a new refrigerator broke down, and I decided to see what happened. I opened the back cover but realized that I could not figure it out myself and took it to repair under warranty. They refused to accept and fix it because it was opened and it was forbidden to repair it yourself. Therefore, when I bought a new air conditioner, I immediately turned to https://www.airconservicingsingapore.com/ . So that they serve it from the very beginning and its operation was under their control.

  9. Introduction Publication of the 18th Edition of BS 7671 saw a number of important changes in respect of overvoltage protection and selection of SPDs. Regulation 443.4 requires that protection against transient overvoltages shall be provided where such over-voltage occurrences could result in: serious injury to, or loss of, human life; interruption of public services and/or damage to cultural heritage; interruption of commercial or industrial activity; or where a large number of individuals at the same location could be affected. For all other cases, a risk assessment according to Regulation 443.5 should be performed in order to determine whether protection against transient overvoltage is required. If the risk assessment is not performed, the electrical installation should be provided with protection against transient overvoltage. An exception to performing a risk assessment is for single dwelling units where it is considered that the total value of the installation and equipment therein does not justify such protection. Any such decision should be based on discussions between the installer and the client. Transient overvoltages due to switching tend to have lower amplitude but a longer duration than those overvoltages of atmospheric origin. Where SPDs are installed to provide protection against overvoltages of atmospheric origin, they will generally meet the requirements for transient overvoltages due to high speed switching. Details of such devices and how they are fitted are given in Section 534 of BS 7671. Risk assessment The assessment and management of risk is now significantly more in-depth and extensive than the approach used in earlier editions of BS 7671, and is only used when the requirements of Regulation 443.4 do not apply. The risk assessment calculation is based upon a formula that uses environmental values that are given in Table 443.1 of BS 7671which is reproduced as Table 1, and on values relating to geographical locations shown in Fig 1, which is a map of the UK showing typical number of lightning flashes per km2. Fig 1 Outline of the UK showing the approximate number of lightning flashes per km2 The values shown in Table 1 and the distribution network cable lengths up to the origin of the installation as shown in Fig 2 are used in the equation given in Regulation 443.5 to determine the calculated risk level (CRL). Fig 2 Line diagram showing the make-up of supply cables to a typical premises If the calculated risk level is less than 1 000, protection against transient overvoltage of atmospheric origin is required. Conversely, where the calculation gives a CRL value equal to or above 1 000, such protection is not required. This method of risk assessment relies on the designer having knowledge of, or having access to, the lengths of supply cable from the surge arrestor on the distribution network up to the origin of the installation. Where the distribution network cable lengths are unknown or only partially known, then LP shall not exceed 1 km, or the distance from the networks overvoltage surge arrestor to the origin of the electrical installation whichever is the lesser. Examples 1. Would it be necessary to install SPDs at a warehouse situated in an urban area where the flash density is 0.8 and the supply is made up of the lengths shown below? This result being greater than 1 000 indicates that SPDs are not required. 2. Would it be necessary to install SPDs at a village primary school situated in a rural area where the flash density is 0.3 and the supply is made up of the lengths shown below? This result being less than 1 000 requires SPDs to be fitted. This would appear reasonable considering the type and occupancy of the building and equipment likely to be found therein. The effect of the geographical location and hence the flash density has an impact on the outcome of the calculated risk level. However, the significant part of the equation is dependent upon the make-up of the supply cabling and whether there is sufficient length of run following a lightning strike for the overvoltage to be attenuated. Summary There may be some confusion regarding the installation of SPDs. However, with the introduction of the 18th Edition, the decision to install SPDs or go through the risk assessment process is something contractors will need to consider when designing new installations or carrying out significant alterations in existing ones. Where a risk assessment has been carried out to determine that SPDs are not required to be installed, such paperwork should be appended to the Electrical Installation Certificate or handed to the client along with other commissioning documents.

  10. Following an extensive development process over two years in the making, the BAFE Fire Safety Register and NAPIT are proud to announce a new Scheme to assess the competency of organisations who provide design, installation, commissioning and maintenance services for BS 5839-6 Grade D fire detection and fire alarm systems in domestic premises. BAFE DS301 (For the Design, Installation, Commissioning and Maintenance of Grade D Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems in Domestic Premises) supports appropriate British Standards and best working practice, most notably the latest iteration of BS 5839-6 (Code of practice for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm systems in domestic premises). Acknowledging progress of recognising both organisational and individual competency following the Grenfell Tower fire, the BAFE DS301 Scheme will also focus scrutiny on two key personnel roles required for an organisation to become Third Party Certificated/BAFE Registered for Grade D systems. These are a Principal Duty Holder (the person appointed by the organisation to have responsibility for the maintenance of the overall standard and safety of the fire detection and fire alarm system work) and a Qualified Supervisor (a Competent Person who meets the requirements of the BAFE DS301 Scheme and with specific responsibility on a day-to-day basis for the safety, technical standard and quality of the fire detection and fire alarm system work). A key requirement for the Qualified Supervisor will be to ensure that all operatives undertaking fire detection and fire alarm work for the organisation are competent. Chris Auger, Director of Schemes - BAFE, comments “The roles of Principal Duty Holder and Qualified Supervisor for the BAFE DS301 Scheme is a crucial element to upholding quality and competency of those delivering these services. Dame Judith Hackitt and subsequent Working Groups have raised the topic of both organisational and individual responsibility which have been incorporated into the BAFE DS301 Scheme organisation competency criteria as a direct result. With this, there will be a transparent chain of responsibility for such systems aiding the desired ‘golden thread’ of key information. It was a core component in the development of the Scheme.” “We are delighted to officially announce the BAFE DS301 Scheme with NAPIT as the first Licensed Certification Body, who will be delivering assessment for those registered within this scope for the electrotechnical sector.” Justin Maltby-Smith, NAPIT Technical Scheme Development Manager, added “NAPIT are delighted to be leading the way with the development of the new DS301 Scheme with BAFE. The DS301 Scheme will help to raise standards within the domestic electrical sector for organisations who carry out design, installation, commissioning and maintenance work on BS 5839-6 Grade D fire detection and fire alarm systems. BS 5839-6 was fully revised in 2019 and amended in 2020 and it is extremely important that work on Grade D fire detection and fire alarm systems is performed in compliance with and to the current British Standard. Achieving this Third Party Certification will demonstrate an organisation’s commitment and competence to perform quality and compliant work to keep people safe in their homes.” The BAFE DS301 Scheme (For the Design, Installation, Commissioning and Maintenance of Grade D Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems in Domestic Premises) is now available for application/assessment via NAPIT. You can register your interest with NAPIT here www.napit.org.uk/schemes/BAFE-DS301-Domestic-Fire-Alarm-Scheme.aspx The BAFE DS301 Scheme Document is now available on the BAFE Website www.bafe.org.uk/become-bafe-registered/bafe-ds301-assessment-and-registration-process Brand: NAPIT Thumbnail image: Teaser: BAFE Scheme DS301 Third Party Certification is now available for contractors working with Grade D fire detection and fire alarm systems for domestic premises.

  11. Military training and qualifications had not always been fully recognised outside the armed forces, with many candidates having to undertake additional civilian vocational qualifications once they have made the transition from military life. However, in 2020 it was announced by the ECS that electrical military qualifications for the Corps of Royal Engineers would form a route to an Installation Electrician occupation and ECS Registered Electrician status. The Ministry of Defence had previously established the Ofqual approved Defence Awarding Organisation (DAO) to award vocational qualifications to armed forces personnel, helping individuals to gain this valuable recognition, and as such the Royal School of Military Engineering (RSME) were able to work with the Joint Industry Board (JIB) to gain recognition through ECS. This will help ex-military personnel transition into civilian life smoothly using the skills and experience gained during their time in the military within ECS. The Army is involved in a range of major building projects and the quality of training provided by the RSME to the Royal Engineers at Chatham in Kent is extremely high. Following the announcement last year on electrical routes, the JIB has now announced that Electrical and Mechanical Draughtspersons can have their qualifications recognised through ECS as a CAD Engineer. This is one of the recognised Site Support Occupations for both: DAO Level 3 Diploma for Mechanical and Electrical Draughtsperson (Military Engineering) DAO Level 5 Diploma for Mechanical and Electrical Draughtsperson (Military Engineering) Applicants for this card will need to hold the ECS Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness assessment or a valid exemption. Andy Reakes, Head of Growth at the ECS, explained: “Industry and employers value the skills, work ethic and organisation of those who have been in the military. This is why ECS cards awarded to those who qualify through this route will be recognised with ‘HM Forces Trained’ on the reverse of their ECS card to show the standards which have been met by the individual.” Andy Mitchell, Head of Defence Awarding Organisation at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, said: “This is such an important development to help ex-soldiers move along with their life after they have left the service without having to prove themselves all over again. Within the Military, you pick up a whole variety of life skills in various disciplines and it is fantastic news that careers developed while in service can easily be continued after soldiers have left. We welcome another route for people trained through the RSME with Mechanical and Electrical Draughtspersons recognised following the work last year to map across training for Electricians.” For further information please visit: www.ecscard.org.uk Brand: ECS Thumbnail image: Teaser: The Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) is encouraging ex-military personnel to transfer the electrical skills and qualifications gained in service to a rewarding career in their civilian life.

(For a mains power supply, these conductors would be the line, neutral and earth). These surges can primarily result in serious injury to people but can also damage expensive items of electrical equipment which are now commonplace in our everyday lives. They can also create serious inconveniences such as loss of data should storage devices be damaged or in commercial installations, an interruption to the working day (i.e. downtime in workshops or offices).SPDs work by diverting the surge currents to earth to reduce the over-voltage to a level that will not damage the components of the system or equipment connected to it. There are three types of surge protection device:Types of Surge Protection DeviceTYPE 1 SPDThis SPD is designed to provide protection against surges caused by direct lightning strokes. This SPD is recommended in the specific case of service-sector and industrial buildings that have a lightning protection system or meshed cage. These can handle very high voltages by creating a short to ground when a specific level of current is achieved.TYPE 2 SPDThe type 2 SPD is the main protection system for all low voltage electrical installations. It protects from over-voltages from switching and indirect lightning strikes. Installed in each electrical switchboard, it prevents the spread of over-voltages in electrical installations and protects the loads.(PowerBreaker SPDs are TYPE 2)TYPE 3 SPDThe Type 3 SPDs have a low voltage discharge capacity and provide local protection for sensitive equipment. They must therefore be installed as a supplement to a TYPE 2 SPD and in the vicinity of sensitive loads.The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Wiring Regulations (BS7671 Section 443) has updated its guidance on SPD devices to include a simplified assessment for when SPDs are required stating:Protection against transient over-voltage shall be provided where the consequence caused by over-voltage:- Results in serious injury, or loss of human life- Results in interruption of public services/or damage to and cultural heritage or,.- Results in interruption of commercial or industrial activity or- Affects a large number of co-located individualsAny commercial, industrial or public buildings that are supplied by overhead lines require surge protection. Likewise, properties located nearby tall structures or tall trees in a lightning prone area should be offered surge protection. Residential properties will depend on use and occupancy levels.For non-residential properties a risk assessment must be undertaken - guidance for which can be found in section 443 of the IET Wiring Regulations.";i:6;s:1625:"Sales Tel: 01279 772772 website: www.greenbrook.co.uk 7Scenario 1SURGE PROTECTION MUST BE PROVIDED Protection against transient over-voltage must be provided where the consequence caused by over-voltage could: - Result in serious injury, or loss of human life - Result in interruption of public services/or damage to and cultural heritage or, - Result in interruption of commercial or industrial activity - Affects a large number of co-located individualsScenario 2SURGE PROTECTION SHOULD BE PROVIDED - Are there overhead lines providing power to the building? - Is the installation in a renowned lightning prone area? - Is there sensitive equipment that requires protection from over-voltages?Scenario 3 - Risk AssessmentA risk assessment should be performed to determine if surge protection is requiredScenario 4 - Single Dwelling unitsSurge protection may be required in single dwelling domestic units if:- The installer establishes that it is what the customer requires- The equipment in the dwelling is of a significant value to require protectionSPD requiredNo Risk Assessment carried out or Calculated Risk Level is less than 1000SPD must be fittedCalculated Risk Level is more than 1000No SPD requiredIt is perceived that the value of equipment warrants surge protectionSPD requiredPlease see Section 443 of the IET 18th Edition Wiring Regulation for further informationCalculated Risk Level (CRL)The Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) have created a calculator to help contractors to undertake the Calculated Risk Level (CRL) of an installation.

If a connection is not tight enough it can create hotspots and arcing. Likewise, if you over tighten the connection you could crush the conductor causing another hotspot. TestingRegulation 514.12.2 indicates you should be testing your RCDs every six months.TT Earthing SystemsThere is nothing to prevent a metal consumer unit being installed with a TT earthing system but it is important to ensure that an earth fault cannot develop between the meter tails and the metallic enclosure before the RCD. Methods of reducing an earth fault include keeping the meter tails as short as possible, the installation of proprietary clamps and glands to secure the cables and prevent strain on the terminations, minimising the risk of damage.Overload protection of an RCCB or switch in an LV assemblyFor further information on this topic please visit the Beama website :-www.beama.org.uk oruse link https://www.beama.org.uk/static/uploaded/6861a2e1-d8d4-4d81-b5fa710ba60ca4a7.pdf";i:9;s:1385:"10Sales Tel: 01279 772772 Email: sales@greenbrook.co.uk KEY - Consumer Unit Board ModulesBlankingModuleMCBRCCB(RCD)MainSwitchPBPD18 - 18 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A32A6A6A16A32A40AThe Dual Fully Populated Consumer Unit range is available in 5 Board layouts - 14/16/18/20/22 modulesPBPD14 - 14 Modules:-PBPD14 - 14 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A6A6A32A40APBPD16 - 16 Modules:-PBPD16 - 16 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A32A6A6A16A32A40APBPD18 - 18 Modules:-PBPD20 - 20 Modules:-PBPD22 - 22 Modules:-PBPD20 - 20 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A32A6A6A16A32A40APBPD20 - 22 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A32A6A6A16A32A40ADual Fully Populated Consumer UnitsContents:- ● 2P Mains Switch 100A ● 2 x Neutral bars ● Detachable Spirit level ● Clear label kit ● 6kA Rated Short Circuit Capacity ● Conforms to BS EN 61439-3● 3 year Guarantee● 8 MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 3 x 32A, 1 x 16A, 3 x 6A● 2 x RCCB 80A, Type A, 30mA ● 10 MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 4 x 32A, 2 x 16A, 3 x 6A● 2 x RCCB 80A, Type A, 30mA● 10MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 4 x 32A, 2 x 16A, 3 x 6A ● 2 x RCCB 80A, Type A, 30mA● 2 x Module blanking plates● 10 MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 4 x 32A, 2 x 16A, 3 x 6A ● 2 x RCCB 100A, Type A, 30mA● 6 x Module blanking plates● 10 MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 4 x 32A, 2 x 16A, 3 x 6A ● 2 x RCCB 100A, Type A, 30mA● 6 x Module blanking plates";i:10;s:424:"11Sales Tel: 01279 772772 website: www.greenbrook.co.uk 14 Way DimensionsFor consumer Unit - PBPD14 3461101062764534130455822524030170357023530Ø32Ø25Ø32Ø254 - Ø2016 - 18 Way DimensionsFor consumer Units - PBPD16 & PBPD184181101063484541330454931524030170357023530Ø32Ø25Ø32Ø256-Ø2020 - 22 Way DimensionsFor consumer Unit - PBPD22 49011010642045485304562.536024030170357023530Ø32Ø25Ø32Ø257-Ø20240";i:11;s:1324:"12Sales Tel: 01279 772772 Email: sales@greenbrook.co.uk The Dual Consumer Unit range are available in 3 Board layouts - 16 modules / 18 modules / 22 modules - all supplied with type 2 SPDPBPDP16 - 16 Modules:-● 8 MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 3 x 32A, 1 x 16A, 3 x 6A● 2 x RCCB 80A, Type A, 30mAPBPDP16 - 16 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A6A6A32A40A32APBPDP18 - 18 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A32A6A6A16A32A40A32APBPDP18 - 18 Modules:-● 10 MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 4 x 32A, 2x 16A, 3 x 6A● 2 x RCCB 80A, Type A, 30mAPBPDP22 - 22 Module Board Layout6A16A32A32A32A6A6A16A32A40A32APBPDP22 - 22 Modules:-● 10 MCB’s - 1 x 40A, 4 x 32A, 2 x 16A, 3 x 6A● 2 x RCCB 100A, Type A, 30mA● 4 x Module blanking platesKEY - Consumer Unit Board ModulesBlankingModuleMCBRCCB(RCD)32AMCB for SPDMainSwitchSPDDual Consumer Unit with Type 2 SPDDual Consumer Units Contents:- ● SPD - Type 2 Type 2 SPD is the main protection system for all low voltage electrical installations.

  14. As long standing members of BEAMA, the UK electrical industries leading manufacturing association, GreenBrook have always played an active role in promoting product safety and helping to drive the industry forward ensuring products are manufactured and tested to the highest standard. In order to ensure the high quality products you would expect from a PowerBreaker product - we have taken our time to perfect our offering and can now proudly show the new range that is easy to install and that fully complies to all the latest regulations delivering optimum safety with some great installation benefits. GreenBrook are now the only supplier to be able to offer both Type A Consumer Units and Socket RCDs from their PowerBreaker brand. With the recent changes to the 18th edition of the wiring regulations, PowerBreaker have created a stylish, minimalistic metal enclosure with a top hinged door that is unobtrusive whilst very functional. Designed with the installer in mind, we have incorporated an increased area of cabling space, multiple large clear knockouts, Type A RCDs and RCBOs, Surge Protection options and a built-in spirit level. We also offer high integrity boards. Available in split load and pre-assembled units you can be confident of a configuration to fit any residential or small commercial environment. Here are the features of the new range in line with the 18th Edition regulations. Metal Enclosures The regulations state that enclosures should be designed to encase a fire within it and restrict the fire spreading. PowerBreaker enclosures are manufactured from non-combustible steel and comply with BS EN 61439-3. Lighting Circuits The additional protection of a 30mA RCD is now required on all lighting circuits in a domestic property. All PowerBreaker RCDs are rated 30mA and Type A. Knockouts A wide selection of 20, 25, 32mm and large oval knockouts for rear entry making the boards easy to install and adaptable for any type of installation. Surge Protection PowerBreaker SPD boards have built-in Type 2 surge protection devices which prevent over-voltages in electrical circuits that can potentially damage electronic equipment such as TV’s, computers, washing machines, alarms etc. A Type 2 SPD is the main protections system for all low voltage electrical installations. It protects against over-voltages from switching and indirect lightning strikes. Installed in the consumer unit, it prevents the spread of over-voltages in electrical installations and protects the loads. Type A RCDs PowerBreaker offer Type A RCDs that detect pulsating DC residual currents in addition to the detection characteristics of Type AC RCDs. In modern households, the goods connected to the consumer unit will be electronic equipment such as LED TV’s, multi-media systems, Laptops, EV chargers etc. which, if at fault, can cause a rush of DC current into the circuit. RCBOs PowerBreaker RCBOs are Type A and rated 6kA. They feature Type B tripping characteristics (Instantaneous Tripping B Curve) for the protection of circuits with equipment that have low surge currents. Our RCBO’s also offer a longer cable length to help with installation. PowerBreaker – the safest bet With a wealth of features together with the peace of mind of PowerBreaker quality and componentry – there really is no safer bet than to use a PowerBreaker Consumer Unit. For further details please visit our website www.greenbrook.co.uk Brand: GreenBrook Electrical Thumbnail image: Teaser: As experts in the field of circuit protection, the PowerBreaker brand has been synonymous with quality and safety for many years. It has been a natural progression for PowerBreaker to move into Consumer Units as an extension to our market leading range of Type A RCD sockets and spurs.

With passenger EV sales set to increase sharply in the next few years, rising from 3.1 million in 2020 to 14 million in 2025¹, World EV Day is inviting young people to create an EV emoji highlighting this exciting sustainable mobility future. Because an official emoji representing EVs does not currently exist, ABB and Green.TV are issuing a challenge to the next generation of EV drivers to design what the companies are calling an EVmoji, the world’s first EV emoji icon. Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s E-mobility Division, comments: “World EV Day has become an important event to ABB as we continue to raise awareness around e-mobility and the value of enabling a low-carbon future. But just as importantly, we see this event as helping to engage the passion and creativity of the future generation of drivers. “Launching an EV emoji challenge within the context of World EV Day offers the perfect opportunity to bring young people into the excitement and momentum around electric vehicles, long before they make purchasing decisions. We are calling creative kids everywhere to the electrifying world of EVs.” The EVmoji challenge is open to entrants between the ages of 6 and 16. All EVmoji drawings, pictures or digital graphics must be posted publicly by August 20th via a personal or parent’s Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or Twitter with the hashtag #EVmoji. The winner will be contacted by World EV Day representatives via Direct Message on the social account from which they entered the challenge. The winning design will be announced on World EV Day (September 9, 2021).

    That may be because EICR’s do not have any scores. Rather just a Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory for continued use evaluation, based on various observations. Doc H
  18. Question: Can the KEWEVSE be used with my MFT? Answer: Yes. The KEWEVSE uses 4mm lead connections and has a 13A socket so is compatible with any MFT. However, in the case of testing EV charge points, the adapters capabilities are limited by the functionality of the MFT being used. For example, you can use the adapter to help you carry out a 6mA RCD test, however, only if your MFT has the capacity to do so like the KT66DL does. The KEWEVSE can be used to test a 3 phase charge point by connecting the distribution board leads on the MFT to the 4mm connections on the front of the adapter. - Kewtech Brand: Kewtech Topic: Testing Tools and Equipment Thumbnail image: Teaser: Our expert answers a question about the KEWEVSE from Kewtech and its compatibility with MFTs.

    Getting into transformer Lite-Tech SY1503A/W

    Thank you. Didn’t know it wasn’t possible to open up to check for sure it was the transformer but looks like it’s this as both bulbs went at the same time . Thank you. Will look to perhaps replace with LED. Thank you.
  21. A joyful but trying time for many couples is the arrival of a new baby. Richard, an electrical distributor employee, has worked within the sector for 12 years and approached the charity because his wife, Karen, was struggling after the birth of their son Harry. Harry had been born 7 months ago and Karen has struggled with ongoing post-natal depression. Richard spoke to the charity seeking therapeutic support for Karen but in his discussion, he disclosed the impact Karen’s depression was having on their relationship. Karen and Richard’s didn’t communicate. Karen was increasingly tearful, lacked in energy and constantly felt low – all symptoms of post-natal depression. Richard tried his best to understand Karen but whenever they did try to discuss support Karen would shut down and retreat to their bedroom. Richard felt it impossible to communicate and was in fear of worsening Karen’s depression. Richard would readily snap at Karen and he was constantly irritated. It was clear Karen and Richard needed marriage counselling to focus on their communication issues. The charity felt it important Karen undertake individual sessions as well as a couple’s session with Richard fortnightly. Karen could then focus on coping with her post- natal depression too. Karen undertook six sessions of interpersonal therapy and a guided self-help course which the charity found online. The charity also put Karen in touch with the Association for Post Natal Illness so she could find support from other new parents. Richard and Karen also attended six relationship counselling sessions which worked on their communication strategies and armed them with tools to repair their relationship. This included safe time out spaces where they could have time away to decompress. Karen and Richard’s relationship is not perfect. They continue to work on their marriage and attend monthly self-funded therapy sessions. Since a combination of self-help, support group and therapy Karen’s post-natal depression is improving. Karen and Harry have built a better bond which is helping her and Richard’s relationship. Although there is still work to be done both Karen and Richard understand how to communicate effectively and are committed to a brighter future. If you need support within your relationship and would like guidance or assistance please contact the Electrical Industries Charity on 0800 652 1618 or support@electricalcharity.org Brand: Electrical Industries Charity Teaser: Relationship breakdown can be a huge source of stress and can understandably cause emotional turmoil for those involved. The Electrical Industries Charity want to do everything they can to support our sector members through life’s rough patches.

    What do you mean by "score"?

    I can say from personal experience that getting a good EICR score is a headache.
  24. These transformers are not meant to be repairable. Just replace it with a new one. Did both lamps fail (go out) at the same time? Often with these halogen lights it is the lamp holders that fail, so failing one at a time might indicate the lamp holders failed? Time to replace the pair with a new set with LED lamps and a transformer suited to LED's.
  25. Hi, I believe the following transformer has blown as the under kitchen counter lights done work (2x lights) and have changed bulbs. However I cannot for the life of me work out how to get into this transformer, and once in to test, which would be the best one to replace with as I cannot find this exact model/type? Any advice please ? Thanks.
  26. We are in the midst of a technology revolution, with the world becoming more connected than ever. But with great connectivity comes great threats. The digitisation of every aspect of our lives means that there is a growing reliance on technology not just in our homes but across businesses and industries too. A dependence that will leave us all vulnerable if our connected systems are breached. The past decades have seen the manufacturing industry embrace the digital revolution. Emergence of new technologies such as cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) has brought down barriers, enabling industries to grow and advance like never before. But, much like in the consumer world, these open platforms and interconnected systems have created more opportunities for cyber criminals, leading to a rise in the frequency of cybersecurity attacks. High profile attacks like the 2017 WannaCry outbreak have highlighted the urgent need for organisations to upgrade their safety measures and rethink traditional cybersecurity approaches. So, how can the manufacturing industry protect itself while still embracing new technology that enables them to grow and deliver the best possible results? Creating and spreading awareness Certain industries, notably in critical infrastructure environments such as power, oil and gas, water and wastewater and nuclear facilities, show a high level of awareness and appreciation of the need for a comprehensive security strategy. They tend to have detailed cyber security plans and procedures in place and their investment of time and capital in protecting their assets is considerable. However, many organisations in other industries, notably manufacturing, are either unaware of the risk of cyber attacks or reluctant to implement security strategies in their enterprises, as investments in cyber security do not appear to have a tangible return-on-investment (ROI). This leads to a complacent ‘wait and watch’ approach that only mandatory regulation or the unfortunate instance of a cyber-attack may change. Given the uncertainty of the regulatory landscape today, this mindset is most likely to persist. Furthermore, the daunting nature of cyber security leads to low uptake of planning and implementation among many companies; This means analysis does not end up leading to action and a total system overhaul remains a vision, rather than a reality. These businesses need a means of visualising, managing, and mitigating risks and threats in their systems. Addressing the barriers To help address these barriers, organisations need to collaborate with each other to understand the unique characteristics of the industrial environment. The key to this will be building a Defense-in-Depth approach to your cyber security. Defense-in-Depth is a hybrid, multi-layered security strategy that provides holistic security throughout an industrial enterprise and is expected to become a security standard in factories of the future. It includes people, processes and technology across an extended digital ecosystem to bolster a company’s cybersecurity posture. With this Defense-in-Depth approach it is vital that organisations adopt a step-by-step plan which includes identifying the biggest impact to their organisation in terms of a security breach, zoning in on which specific area of plant operations is linked to that impact, outlining what the biggest vulnerabilities are in relation to that area of operation and lastly minimising or eliminating those vulnerabilities. Once complete, organisations can move on to the next impact-area-vulnerability issue. Rather than revamping an entire system at once and falling victim to "analysis paralysis". This step-by-step approach not only ensures that the significant changes with the highest impact are affected immediately, but also ensures the organisation does not spread itself too thinly. Building a cyber-resilient culture We must understand that security is everyone’s problem. It must be integrated into every business, at all times, becoming part of each employee’s daily actions. In most companies, a lack of cybersecurity training represents a big gap in terms of overall readiness and digital security. A comprehensive programme must account for the human element in a digital ecosystem. More than just hardware and software resilience, security rigor includes a process and plan that define the roles and responsibilities of employees and workers. It defines the types of actions and activities that are allowed to be performed, and includes clearly communicated consequences for noncompliance. Ongoing learning and enablement about cybersecurity is essential. When developing your training programs, businesses need to think about creating basic level awareness sessions to expert-level courses, depending on the roles of your individual employees. It’s important, too, to integrate both an understanding of the ISA / IEC 62443 standard and, more important, learning how to apply it across the business, operation, or function. Protect the industry against future threats Cybersecurity is a constantly evolving space, with attackers persistently developing new and advanced technology and skills to compromise data and systems. The disruption of operational systems can have a far-reaching and potentially catastrophic impact to your business both in the short and long term. Whereas previously companies have sought to meet these escalating challenges individuals, the future is far more collaborative. Today, businesses are working together to develop cross-industry skills, combined with open technology and transparent communication to fortify businesses and keep plants running smoothly.

    Advice Required - Newby

    Prior to becoming an elecrician, I worked in various industries. Tech Eng apprenticeship with British Aerospace working on navigation and missle actuation systems. Stayed with BAe for 10 years before moving on to various employers doing anything from CAD design to project engineering. Got fed up with being made redundant as the factories moved out to China, so went into electrics as my apprenticeship was electro-mechanical, so a fairly easy transition for me. Did the 'part P', 16th edition regs and worked with a friend to learn house bashing. Followed that up with 2391 inspection and testing after a year or so. Never bothered with NVQ level 3 or the like - takes too long. Latterly went into solar panels, as it was interesting and is actually easier than wiring houses plus pays more money. Currently I'm semi-retired and just pottering around doing the odd kitchen/ bathroom, and maintenance work for a school and some other property management companies. Hardest part of starting any business is getting a customer base, you can only expect to 'break even' in the first year, which is going to be vey difficult if you have a mortgage to pay. Fortunately you have family that can help with that. Least hassle for you, possibly, would be to take on your father's roofing business (if he has his own company). Roofing seems to pay well from what I have seen. People also like a 'family firm'. Whatever to decide to do, make sure you have enough money in the bank to pay the bills for at least 6 months, ideally a year.
