Example text

27 This page intentionally left blank CHAPTER 4 Testing Continuity of Ring Final Circuit Conductors (Low-Resistance Ohmmeter) Important terms/topics covered by this chapter: ▪ Low resistance ohmmeter ▪ Ring final circuit interconnections ▪ Spurs ▪ (R1 + R2) values ▪ Interpretation of test values By the end of this chapter the reader should, ▪ know the reasons for conducting a ring final circuit continuity test, ▪ understand the problems that interconnections may create, ▪ understand why initial conductor cross-connections are made for the test, ▪ know how incorrect initial cross-connections are revealed, ▪ know why L to cpc values for flat sheathed cables vary slightly during the test, ▪ be able to interpret test results.

What instrument is used for testing the continuity of protective conductors? What would be the approximate resistance value of a 10 mm2 protective bonding ­conductor, 15 m long? What may be the effect on a resistance test reading taken between the connected ends of a protective bonding conductor? Where, on a lighting circuit should a cpc continuity test be conducted? 4 above? Why is a value of (R1 + R2) important, other than confirming cpc continuity? Low resistance ohmmeter. 03 Ω. A lower value of resistance than the actual conductor value due to parallel earth paths.

Under these circumstances, it is usual to break down such large installations into smaller sections, floor by floor, distribution circuit by distribution circuit, etc. This also helps, in the case of periodic testing, to minimize disruption. Ensure the supply to the circuit/s in question is isolated. Disconnect all items of equipment such as capacitors and indicator lamps as these are likely to give misleading results. Remove any items of equipment likely to be damaged by the test, such as dimmer switches, electronic timers, etc.
