Discuss NOT SEEN THIS BEFORE. ASSUME PME??? in the Electrical Forum area at ElectrciansForums.co.uk.
as title.cable tapped into N, disappears into the ground. assume to a rod.
Interesting way to tap in ... IP00 perhaps?
Looks like that supply has had "surgery" in the past too!
Presumably now at least PNB!
That "crimp" can't have been left like that (is one of the neutral strands snapped?); it does look like a cable could have been connected to the next joint along the cable at some point, maybe this was a method of restoring back to how it was.
Not sure this is an approved method of applying TNCS for an incoming supply.
well it's a DNO bodge then. this house is the last of 6 on the run. . none of the others have antything like it.
Very poor bodge, but it looks like it has been there for a while and seem OTT for many DIY type efforts.
Hey it should work OK so long as the corrosion is not too bad!
Just goes to show how something new can be learnt/seen everyday.
What sort of wire is it?
Also,what is the tape hiding,further along that neutral to the left?
Looks like a washing line, further up the wall....looks neater, too.
back there today. will measure Ze, PSCC, and PEFC.
If it's the last house of the run, it will be 16mm hard drawn copper down to an earth rod as per DNO PME regs. Should have a PME label attached.
