    DB

    so i walk down to the DB to take a look at the circuit breaker and do some tests...and what do i find...

    just what i expected...and people wonder why i am so sick and tired of being an electrician...can not one person just do their %^&*$ job right.

    can anyone see anything wrong with this DB?

    no circuit labels

    no in case of...label

    blank missing

    when i opened it i found a transfomer for the elctric fence inside the DB with the 1.00 mm cabtyre connected directly to the bottom of the e/l unit.

    a 0.25 mm piece of cabtyre connected to the light circuit 15 amps breaker.

    the keypad mounted on the db cover so when you take off the front panel it hangs on 2 small little signal wires...is this even legal?

    connecting an electric fence to an e/l unit must be half the problem...especially when it rains and the fence shorts out...surely you dont connect an electric fence to an e/l unit?

    It's another example of an electrician not being used to connect up and sign off the installation. Same problem as in this thread. http://www.theforumsa.co.za/forums/s...ades#post37371

    what do you think of the keypad on the cover and signal cables next to the power cables?

    and the transfomers being mounted inside the db...with different voltages?
