    And suddenly I remember !!!!

    In the 70’s our cat “Pepper” had a fascination with the television. She would sit on the arm of the chair next to the television and use her paws to change channels. She didn’t give a stuff what you were watching!
  3. Hello all, just joined this site and after some help. I have not come across this before. We are currently refurbishing a house, new cables are being fitted as the work progresses and connected to existing light circuits that we have not yet got to as the refurbish continues. All electrical circuits have been fine. The particular light circuit in question has had all the new cable tested and is good. For some reason, 3 days ago the circuit tripped and the builder on site could not reset the RCBO. (All circuits are on their own RCBO's). I went yesterday and started to work through the circuit from where the builders had been working just in case they had gone through something, but all was good. To cut a long story short I removed a number of cables from an Ashley brown junction box and connected that all in Wago connectors for ease, The circuit held when the RCBO was reset, however, as soon as I turned a switch on that fed halogen lights, it tripped again and would not hold until the switch had been turned to the 'off' position. Changing lamps for LED's and again it held, but as soon as I added further LED lamps that took the current to over 20 watts, the circuit tripped again. Basically now, the circuit that quite happily allowed four 40 Watt halogen lamps to be switched on along with other LED lamps, not will not allow anything more than 20 watts. I'm completely stumped as to why this has happened. I have checked the RCBO by putting the circuit cable in to the adjacent 6 amp RCBO, but that one does exactly the same. Has anyone got previous experience of similar situation or advice on where to take it from here?

    Surge protection

    Good obs Zee, even so Malta is I believe in the EU and apparently I’m told our regs are aligned with the EU so this leads me to conclude that it may bear some relevance only if what I’m told is true?????
  11. Sorry to inform everybody that we needed to change the price to £68.00 and £179.00 respectively. This is because some of our partner exam centres have increased the price of the exam, blaming it on C&G... If you do some research you will find that this price is still very competitive, but again, sorry for the trouble. The good news is that we have new locations for the C&G exam in South Wales and Norwich available. More locations are coming soon.

    Requirements please

    Strange you say all that ....last notifiable I did , they didn't appear to be bothered about a cert . It was proved when 8 months later I was going back through my certs book and found I'd made it out but never given it to the customer .
  16. It's switching between rates (1,2) but the second read is always at 0. The first meter was installed about 1-2 months ago, and due to this problem replaced by EDF for an identical one, but the same issue occurs. I think it's pretty clear it requires an external switch (based on the manual in the link of my first post and the paragraph copied below*) but the engineer didn't mention anything about it when installing either meter, which makes me think he was a) a bit clueless, not out of the question I suppose or b) expected me to already have it sorted on my side and therefore it's my responsibility. Just for the sake of clarity it isn't actually my property but one I look after, the bill will be in the tenants name so I can certainly find out about that. *The configuration is factory set allowing the meter to operate as a single or two rate meter. Rate switching is achieved by switching neutral or live to the input terminal. See wiring diagram for the D model. Additionally, page 11 of this document seems to suggest the time Switch is the responsibility of EDF. http://www.energy-uk.org.uk/files/docs/GuidanceforElectricityandGasMeterInstallationCustomerFacingIssues.pdf If anyone could clarify that it would be very helpful. Just a bit odd that none of the engineers would have mentioned this.
  17. But, I love this and the original.... They've just played this on Planet Rock. Such a shame he is no longer with us, Guns 'n' Roses did a brilliant tribute to him at the London City Stadium gig I was at last July with Mrs Sidewinder.

  23. Originally launched in September 2016, Inceptor Pico was designed to provide contractors with a lower cost lighting solution for those applications not requiring a fire-rated fitting. However, such has been the demand for a fire-rated version of this popular product, that Scolmore has listened to customers and the new model is now available and will sit alongside the original Pico. The new Inceptor Pico FG fire rated fixed integrated LED downlight offers a cost-effective LED solution whilst producing an excellent light output for the power utilised. It is ideal for installations where the void depth is limited and fire rating is required. As well a fire rating of 30, 60 and 90 minutes, Pico FG has a number of additional benefits. It will be supplied with a pre-attached fly lead rather than terminals to make installation even easier and quicker and thus adding to time saved on the job by the contractor. The Inceptor Pico is also compatible with Scolmore’s new Insulation Support Clip, which has been developed to allow installers to lay thermal insulation directly over the Inceptor Pico. The Insulation Support Clip creates a 20mm air space above the driver which allows air to circulate and cool. This allows the driver to dissipate heat more effectively and in turn allows the luminaire to run cooler. The Inceptor Pico combines a number of other key features which sets it apart from competitor products. With its 50mm profile, the fitting is ideal for installations where the void depth is limited and it has an adaptable cut-out to fit apertures of between 70mm and 75mm in diameter. The height of the spring brackets has been increased to allow the product to be installed in ceiling thicknesses of 36mm. The new Pico downlight utilises a lens constructed from high quality polycarbonate and the frosted front provides improved beam angle resulting in smoother light distribution. A 90° beam angle produces a larger spread of light to provide more light coverage. The fitting is also IP65 rated, which makes it dust tight and protected against low pressure water jets. This means it is an ideal solution for kitchens, bathrooms and wet rooms. It incorporates SMD LED technology, which produces high reliability performance and utilises very little power. With an energy rating of A+ and an L70 LED lifetime of 20,000 hours, the Inceptor Pico FG requires zero maintenance and offers low energy consumption for the lifetime of the product. Available in a dimmable option as standard, the Pico FG can be easily switched or dimmed utilising a variety of methods. It is suitable for use with Scolmore’s range of Click Smart intelligent automation products. It is offered in three of Scolmore’s most popular finishes – White, Satin Chrome and Chrome and in cool white and warm white options.

  26. With a choice of dimming modes – leading or trailing edge – installers can choose the mode that works most effectively with the LED lights they are using. The electronics inside some LED lamps have better compatibility with trailing edge and some are better in leading edge. Flicker at the bottom end of the dimming range is quite common when dimming LEDs. By incorporating a minimum brightness setting, the new Dual Mode Dimmer Module allows the minimum brightness to be adjusted, so that any flicker at the bottom end of the dimming range can be trimmed out. Some LED dimmers can also be quite complicated to install, especially when changing the settings such as dimming mode and minimum brightness, sometimes requiring the installer to perform a specific switching sequence using the dimmer knob. Scolmore has made this much easier by positioning two small switches on the back of the module. Switch 1 allows the minimum brightness to be adjusted; switch 2 allows the dimming module to be adjusted. Their position on the back of the module also makes it easier to change the dimmer settings without removing the module from the plate and so saving installation time. The Dual Mode Dimmer Module also includes electronic thermal overload protection, so that if the module gets too hot it will cut out without damaging the internal electronics, allowing the module to cool down. This means that once it has cooled, it can be used again, with no need to replace the module. With some dimmers, the overload protection will reset the dimmer to factory settings, resulting in the installer having to be called out to reprogram the dimmer. With the Scolmore module, the thermal overload protection does not have any effect on the installation settings, which means that the dimmer will remain set in the ideal compatibility settings for the LED lamps, as originally set by the installer. The small size of the new dimmer module means they can be placed above/below each other on multi-tier plates. They will fit into 25mm back boxes when used on raised plates and into 35mm back boxes when used on flat plates. By addressing some of the key frustrations of LED dimmers, and introducing a product that will help contribute to a saving of installation time on site, Scolmore believes its new intelligent dimming module will be in high demand by installers. For further details on the new Dual Mode Dimmer Module, as well as Scolmore’s full range of wiring accessories and lighting products visit www.scolmore.com. Email sales@scolmore.com or contact Scolmore on 01827 63454. Brand: Click Topic: Lighting Lighting Control - Gear & Infrastructure Thumbnail image: Teaser: The problems of flickering and poor dimming range are well-documented issues for installers when it comes to LED dimmers. Now Scolmore has come up with an intelligent dimmer module that not only eliminates flickering, but is much easier to control than regular dimmers, and is essentially two dimmers in one – offering the installer maximum compatibility.

Following a £4million investment, the new four-storey, 37-bedroom, luxury hotel, opened on Clifton Terrace, overlooking the seafront, and products from Scolmore’s Deco wiring accessories range were selected to meet the high specification requirements of this prestigious new hotel. Switches and sockets from the Deco range have been fitted in all the hotel bedrooms and an antique brass finish was chosen to compliment the style of the interior décor, which was worked up by award-winning designers, renowned for their contemporary yet timeless concepts. DECO is a range of decorative metal wiring accessories and the Deco brand has become synonymous with high specification, high quality, long life and unprecedented value. Kevin Tench, director at Total Electrical Ltd, was responsible for the electrical installation and commented: “This was a really interesting project to work on. Each of the bedrooms is a different shape and size, so required different quantities and locations for the plugs and sockets. Deco is a high quality range that looks really good in situ and the antique brass finish chosen works perfectly with the overall interior theme.” For further information, contact Scolmore on 01827 63454, or visit www.scolmore.com.

PDF to HTML: a:1:{i:0;s:2171:"Scolmore secures specification for care home The refurbishment of a former NHS care home, by new owners, Rushcliffe Care Group, has just been completed, with products from Scolmore’s wiring accessories collections specified and installed throughout the 27-bedroom facility. Mill Lodge Care Home in Kegworth provides secure inpatient care for adults. The property is a single storey building made up of four main wings and comprising 27 bedrooms, four main corridors, kitchens and dining facilities and a range of offices and clinical support rooms. Scolmore’s Deco Plus switches and sockets in a black nickel finish were selected for the bedrooms - with three light switches and double sockets in each room – as well as for all the corridors and nurses’ stations. Launched last year, Deco Plus is a comprehensive range of more than 800 premium decorative metal wiring accessories that builds on the huge success of the classic Deco range - first launched in 2003 - and introduces smooth, contemporary curves that will have wide-ranging appeal with contractors, specifiers and end users alike. For the main kitchen, four satellite kitchens and offices, the Click Mode range has been installed. The smooth modern lines of the Mode range complement the Deco Plus products utilised. All white moulded and CLICK Mode Part M wiring accessories are manufactured using Urea Formaldehyde and are all independently tested achieved a 99.99% kill off rate across all four types of the strains of bacteria. Simon Bell from SB Electrical, the contractor responsible for the specification and installation of Scolmore’s products, commented: “I’ve been using the Click Mode range of wiring accessories since the first time the range was launched. The flexibility to integrate different inserts onto a plate was quite unique at the time and I now can’t remember a time when I used anything else. Scolmore is a great company to work with; the products are a great quality and really robust. I’ve been involved in a lot of the DIY SOS makeover projects and never hesitate to recommend Scolmore’s wiring accessories and lighting products when I can.” ";} Is PDF to HTML Checked: 0 Brand: Scolmore Group Update date: 16/08/2018 Number of thumbnail page: 1 PDF Library: Case studies Pages counter: 0 Page to display after flipbook opening: 2 Year: 2018 Year: 2018 Target group: Voltimum Show body: PDF Thumbnail: View the full article
