Question

ok chaps, I found this; http://www.sensor.co.uk/Bthroomwire.htm

thoughts?

My next problem is the Rcd situation. the house has a 3036 fuse box

I plan to use an RCD spur from the ring for the underfloor heating.

If I use LV downlighters and uplighters will they still have to be on rcd Circuit?

If so from where?

Ideas please?

What exactly is it you need to do? how much do these jobbies cost? Can't a normal switch do the job?

IMHO could be an expensive solution..

Unless customer is after some specific "look" or appearance with these discrete touch thingys.

e.g. Table 8.1 On site guide page 70

Outside of zones, 600mm from edge of bath-shower, NO extra IP rating needed, No limitations for fixed current using equipment, only limitation is 3m rules for sockets.

RCD..?

701.411.3.3 says ALL circuits must be RCD protected.

Though as you say if the bulk of it is 12v or 5v cables via an Isolation transformer.. it does beg the question why? and what improvement does this make? But tis what we have to work to:|

RCD can be mounted anywhere suitable..

IMHO may be easier to just divert the whole of that lighting circuit into a 30ma RCD fused spur somewhere down by the fusebox....

Spur provides shock protection.

Existing Fuse/MCB provides overload protection.

dunno if that is any help?:):|

Thanks for the help chaps; I've now got something like this in mind

[ATTACH]244[/ATTACH]

using pullswitch for on/off. dimmers can then be put well outside the Zones and only used for control when light level needs to be altered

opinions please?
