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. At all points on the circuit. It is (R1 + R2) for the circuit. It can be used in the formula Zs = Ze + (R1 + R2) to confirm a measured value of Zs or to calculate a Zs value where measurement is not possible. 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.

A schedule of test results and a schedule of inspections must accompany an EIC. SEQUENCE OF TESTS The IEE Regulations indicate a preferred sequence of tests and state that if, due to a defect, compliance cannot be achieved, the defect should be rectified and the test sequence started from the beginning.

Routing of cables: Are cables installed such that account is taken of external influences such as mechanical damage, corrosion, heat, etc.? Conductor selection: Are conductors selected for current carrying capacity and voltage drop in accordance with the design? Connection of single pole devices: Are single pole protective and switching devices connected in the line conductor only? Accessories and equipment: Are all accessories and items of equipment correctly connected? Thermal effects: Are fire barriers present where required and protection against thermal effects provided?
