We’re back with another shocking #caughtoncamera, this one sent in by London Electrical Solutions – “Is this a satisfactory connection of main protective bonding to the water? (All other issues aside, sizing/safety connection label etc)?”
This #caughtoncamera we received recently from Mark Connolly – “I have attached a picture of an under unit light fitting that has been fitted to a new property. The light is a class 2 fitting and I have come across this many times before but, didn’t give it much thought.
Because the fitting is Class 2 I believe that it would have come with a pre fitted length of wire about 1.5m long and the light is designed for the connections to be done external from the light fitting (Class 1 fittings are designed to have the connections done at the light fitting and come with a short wire with an earth connection).
What code do you think this would be on an inspection: C3 – not as manufactures fitting or C2 – no earth connection provided (due to the single insulated wires making it no longer Class 2).If you were to earth the fitting it would still be a C3 – not as manufacture fitting or C2 – potential introduced
I think that many sparks might learn from this example”
