    How do you get 380 volts?

    If you only need to run a 3 phase motor on the 380 volts a VFD is the way to go. It gives you single to 3 phase conversion, a motor starter, overload protection, and speed control all in the one package Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    One or two aircons?

    If you got room above your ceiling you might check out putting a cassette AC in the center of your ceiling that will give you a better distribution of air about the room Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Electric Timers

    While your at it check out the Queensland gov site re smoke alarms. Is one bit of legislation that makes sense and in not a burden to the householder. It’s all about saving lives not about telling neighbours when u burning your toast. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Most ACs have error codes too.. talk about bad luck Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Check your neighbour doesn’t have similar AC and you keep winding his/hers up with your remote.. [emoji2] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Water tank suction?

    Check the air vent is not blocked and the tank under vacuum. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Underground cable for new house

    What’s the depth cables are buried in the LOS. As a comparison in Aus under traffic areas it’s 750mm Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Underground cable for new house

    Drop in a couple extra tubes and bury the ends at your fence line to be recovered later for electric gate, security camera and lights etc Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    light circuit 2kohm live-earth

    To test a circuit insulation to earth first you must disconnect the neutral of that circuit in the consumer unit as the neutral is grounded upstream. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    RCBO installed - issues

    You need to get your polarity checked Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Advice on proper circuit breakers

    There is a bit of misconception here that a rcd or RCBO limits the shock to 30 mA. That’s not the case, the 30 mA is the threshold current that it will trip. To be in spec an rcd with 30 mA test current should trip within 300 ms and test current of 150 mA trip within 40ms. You are not safe with an RCD orRCBO ...just safer. You can’t protect stupid.

    Portable generator not producing electric

    I had that problem with an alternator and I disconnected the field wires red and white and connected a battery to the terminals (positive to the terminal with the red wire) for 3 to 5 sec. I did not start the generator at that stage. I reconnected the wires, cover back on then I started the generator. This was enough to put the residual ack into the field pole. I read with interest using an electric drill to energise the field and I can see you need the right type of drill. One with permanent magnets and no speed control. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    RCBO found not connected

    Curiosity got the better of me about shared neutrals in AS3000 and yes they allow it but there is a few things you must do 1 All circuit breakers or isolation switches must be linked so all actives are isolated 2 The neutral conductor must be clearly marked and the actives identified 3 the neutral cannot be looped in switches,lights,power points or appliances. It’s a lot simpler to run a neutral for each active and be done with it Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
