  • Mehdi, if you are looking to install solar panels, I highly suggest to you APsystems microinverters with your solar panels. APsystems microinverters have an independent MPPT tracker for every solar panel and they have their Quad QS1 microinverter which is very cost effective and very reliable. Therefore you will be able to capture the most energy from your roof. For solar panels, highly recommend LG or Canadian Solar panels. Trust me, I have 12 years of experience in the solar industry. If you need any help, just contact me and I will be very happy to help you.

Here in Brazil, every single installation using NEMA breakers/systems are being replaced for DIN /flexible conductors. Here we see a house with rigid conductors and say "thats freakin' old! Time to replace to DIN" hahaha!

  • You calculated the size of your breaker incorrectly. The size of the breaker should be in line with maximum capacity of the cables as mcbs are there to protect the cables and the RCD is to protec you. I. E cable can has a max of 22a use a 20a it will trip before the cable is damaged. Ha finally putting my electrical nvq into use!!

And the people saying the code is important usually have no clue of the real reasons for them.

  • If the rating is 50Amps, then you have (NO ISSUES) as what is to be "RATED" is the wire that feeds it and the breaker which was correct. The fact the actual receptacle can take 50amps+ just means at a 30amp breaker "POP" situation, the outlet is nowhere near the damage rating point of 50+amps it is rated to. I think you have a bunch of people not reading the NEC codes correctly. Just because a receptacle is rated at "X 30 AMPS" doesn't mean you have to use "X 30 AMPS" if you already have or can insert "Y" 50 AMPS which can handle even more amperage. The main thing is the feed wire rating and breaker amperage rating is rated for whatever is plugged into said receptacle.. The receptacle is again, along for the ride just like the wire. For instance... If you wished to run a 6ga wire to your heater rated at 50amps-60amps instead of the 10ga wire you did run, yes the "WIRE" at 6-2 or 6-3 is rated for 60amp (MAX) breaker, by using the 30 amp breaker instead just means the wire can handle the load of the 30amp thus is (PERFECTLY FINE) and can easily handle the load, overkill yes, but perfectly fine with "CODE" again because you have a breaker rated at wire specs or "more", it's your breaker amperage mated to the appliance you wish to protect. The wire just needs to be able to handle the "AMPERAGE" said appliance pulls, and is along for the ride just like the receptacle.

  • Ok so, if anyone is good at electrics or anything that would be great, I went to heat up my tea in the microwave earlier, so I stuck it in, shut the door and everything was ok until I went to turn on the microwave at the plug (I'm in the UK), my right hand was on the microwave not sure if it was the metal side panel or the buttons, and I turned on the plug with my left, and I got a pretty bitching shock on both my fingers, anyone have any idea what the hell just happened? The microwave was ok to use after that, and heated my tea up alright with a couple plastic gloves, but still kinda worried about using it from now on. It was pretty shocking I guess you could say

  • Basically breakers are there to protect only wires and not equipment attached. Burnt wires are hard to replace and in wooden building burning wires pose a serious threat. Breakers protect wires. There are cases when you want to protect equipment too, but most probably equipment manual describes how to do it.

  • That’s pretty interesting, every single breaker I’ve messed with usually has a set current to trip at. Let’s say you have a 20 amp breaker, if the current reaches 20 A or more, the breaker will more or less immediately trip. This might be some sort of special breaker I’ve never heard of. I even searched an educational video on the topic, the video explained that a breaker will trip immediately if the current goes above its rating, or is directly shorted. Am I overthinking this or this is just how breakers worked all along, and if that’s true then none of the breakers I’ve installed worked that way.

    Reeve KookReeve Kook2 mesi fa
    • most breakers have two types of tripping an immediate rush of current like a dead short will trip an eletromagnet switch and if your gradually pulling to many amps/watts there is a bi-metal temp switch tht heats up and trips. this is a great channel explains a lot in simple terms itworlds.info/round/pWevgL6Hq8xpbng/video

They aren't expencive at all, small, very easy to use and most importantly very safe. They are like 10$ for 50 or 100 WAGO's. Please try them and you will realize what pieces of junk you have been using before.
