    SANS codes.

    I see the SANS codes are not available online.

    Would an online version of SANS 10125 be useful. I can see about loading them and keeping them up to date. It would also be searchable, which might prove useful.

    Any comments.

    Of course it would be useful! Absolutely! It would also be an excellent idea if you highlighted new regulations as soon as they are applicable.

    ....Just make sure the one you post is not the version you pay for in the store ...it may upset a few guys up at SABS if you know what I mean.

    these would be very interesting threads.

    if we could get hold of some past exam papers and post a question on the site per day then people could answer or assisst with understanding the code better...now that would be a good idea...it would be like a refresher course for some of us ....help with people doing the course and and at the same time make the public more aware of the codes and what is expected of electricians...

    i purchased the code on cd but never updated.

    and to make it more interesting add in some practical experiences from the inspectors....for example

    while carrying out a inspection report...you come across a DB while is higher than 2.2 m above the ffl what action do you take and what would the recommendation be to solve this issue. (common problem encountered)

    do you leave it as is and sign over the coc or do you lower the main switch to below 2.2 m.

    another common one is the db in the cupboard...what do you do.

    so now you buy a property and walk in the kitchen and find the db in the cupboard...if you are not an electrical inspector by reading these post you will know what to expect and if the inspector has been on the property.



    the tv guy comes to fit you arial...what to expect...who puts the earth wire...and where do you connect it...all these type of question related directly to the public...it would make the public more aware and hopefully more people will take the time to contribute...or query installtions by posting pic of their queries.

    Ive got one too....... The new ammendment requires surge arrestors be installed in the house. They make reference to this on multiple pages, including a dedicated annexure (L).

    What do you do if there is no more space in the DB??????????????

    6.7.6 Surge protection
    6.7.6.1 Surge protective devices (SPDs) may be installed to protect an
    installation against transient overvoltages and surge currents such as those
    due to switching operations or those induced by atmospheric discharges
    (lightning). Amdt 1; amdt 6


    Hi Jacques, do they mean "may be installed"? which does not not mean "must be installed"?

    Regards-Christo
