    On an I&T I'd give it a C2.
    There'll be something under safe isolation for that.

    There is something in the regs (not got a copy to hand now) stating something about devices have to be used for the purpose designed for or something along those lines. As above I would C2 i think. If it was the other way round and there were single pole devices used for a 3 phase item that would be a C1 in my book.

    Also I would be concerned as to what it is feeding? I am only assuming that he has used a TP device for a SP circuit, and that the other 2 ways are clear.

    As Archie said, isolation is it’s downfall. Get it changed if you can.

    Reg 537.2.2.3 A device for isolation shall be designed..........

    The device is not intended to 1 + 2 pole iso.

    537.2.2.4 Provision shall be made for securing off-load isolating devices........

    Can it be locked off in that condition?

    537.2.2.5.......... isolation shall be preferably be provided by a multipole switching device which disconnects all applicable poles.......

    Which in this case it doesn't.


    Take it out and get a new one in before some numpty turns on a phase whilst someone is working on it.
