  • Wiring standards are so bad here in the US. My house's wiring hasn't been upgraded since it was built in 1959. Half the outlets are wired backwards, the other half are NEMA 1-15 ungrounded outlets. Pretty sure there's some lamp cord in the walls too. Most of the ground floor is knob-and-tube wiring, and there's a subpanel down there with Edison screw fuses. A shame I'm not in charge of that particular aspect of our property. :/

  • This is how I understand the disclaimer (spoiling the German habit of getting mental paralysed when meeting a certified expert): Use an expert unless you fully know what you are doing / unless you are competent enough. There‘s nothing wrong with doing it yourself as long as you know what you are doing, not just with electrics.

  • What’s the point of the 5cm gap between the conduit and backboxes? In the UK the idea of cable containment is to contain the cable at all times, so bends, conduit boxes and glands would go where you have bare cable exiting the conduit before it reaches an accessory or turns a corner. I’m baffled!

  • Down under in Australia we don't have the 5cm of exposed wire, we have conduit all the way to the junction box and we use blue points for splices.

  • I actually went through all this research process just to make a solar generator ( single solar panel with a 1kw inverter ). Its very different to when you just do high power DC wiring where you can just solder 2 wires together and then cover it in heat shrink.

  • Looks like regulations are a bit more strict here in Belgium. - Even if you use a circuit breaker lower than 20A all socket cabling must be at least 2,5mm2. - When mixing sockets with lights the lights must also be connected with 2,5mm2. - Conduit ends require an end cap to prevent the "sharp" conduit edge cutting into the outer sheath of the cables. Very nice that you mentioned the use of different types wago splice connectors when using stranded cables. On top of that I use ferules on the stranded cables and they perfectly fit in those wago 221 splice connectors if you use the right ferrule (looks like they took that into account when designing those)

  • A couple of things: 1. Separate lines for tools and lights and use additional isolation around wires connected in WAGOs. Also it's good those to be separated in the small splitting boxes 2. RCBO detects current difference between L and N, and PE is your (at least) protection when N is cut off. Also RCBO should be with different rating for different lanes - main 100mA, 30mA for tools/lights, 30 or 15mA for electronics (depends) 3. Always, always use lightning protection (cathode arresters) on ALL 3 lines 4. It's a good idea to have voltage protection on the input - it protects with cutting it off from the network when it becomes too high or too low (for example below 200V and higher than 235V)

  • There is one little thing you could have done better, which would be to earth the DIN rail. I like the Pheonix Connect "USLKG" line because they are cheap on eBay, but it's important because wires often short out on the DIN rails themselves due to cuts in the wire jacket, loose connections, etc. You used a high quality wire jacket cutter so it is unlikely your tool went too deep with a razor blade and left a little nick in the jacket of the wire insulation, but in other parts of the world they use hand tools which aren't so precise and shorting out on the rail can be a real problem. When I moved into my house in Germany, there was a 3-phase 32A wire used to power a car lift / hebebühne (that the previous tenant stole) that was cut 2mm before the end of the METAL elctrical conduit it was sitting in. They had hacked it off with a saw to take the hebebühne, left the wire live. I only noticed it because snow came in under the garage door, then back up, and onto the end of the wire and made a huge bang. Didn't trip any of the breakers though. That wasn't the last time that crazy lady almost killed me after she moved out, but the purpose of my story is to say even when you do everything by the book, unexpected things happen. Even in Germany! :D

  • in Belgium we place end caps on both ends of the conduits, called eindtullen, don't know the english word for it but if you google it you'll know what i mean. makes the conduits look a liitle cleaner and prevents possible wire damage from rubbing along the sharp opening edge.

  • Similar how we do things in Sweden, but it tend to vary between the electrician doing the work. What types of material he's most comfortable to use and what the customer is willing to pay. Been an electrician for more then 10 years here and seen very good installations as bad. I'm sure this guy is a professional, you can see it in the way he does the junction box. Guess its just a different mindset, regarding material and tool usage. But I can clearly see some things that most electricians here would have done differently! Both in material use, and how the installation is done. Since your putting up a new central. Why not put a main breaker and a new main fuse in, you had the space for it? Then going to whatever you wanted. Instead of using the old one, makes no sense to me. Not sure why you connected the led lights on both sides either and going between them, could have been avoided by either another junction box or using cables with 4-5 wires inside. Why he choose to enter the junction box on the lower inlets makes no sense to me either. Blocking top entrance, and have an unnecessary bend on the cables. My preferred method here would be using cable channels, think they blend better into the walls/corners bit more time consuming, but still quite fast if you're good at it. I'm almost positive I would have done it faster or in the same time he did using these pipes and a saw cutting them. One larger going from central along side the whole wall, with smaller ones going out to each LED light would been enough. Second option would be using pipes, similar to done in the video. But definitely smaller size! looks like 25mm to me, way bigger then what ever will be needed. I would also have connected them straight into the junction boxes. This gives you all the benefits of using pipes, being able to use wires without extra insulation. Making it easier to change out in the future, also cheaper since loose wires are cheaper and faster to use. My least favorite, but the preferred by many. Would be just putting the cable on the wall/ceiling using clips. If done correctly it looks almost if not better then using cable channels. I'm surprised to see the electrician not using lasers when mounting the piping! Makes it much easier to line things up and getting everything straight, and he wouldn't need to mark before hand. Also the big markings he makes for drilling positions and measure markings are still visible, something I would scold an apprentice by! And that he was using a saw to cut the pipes, here we all use a hand pruner for cutting up to 25-32mm pipes. Faster and you get a nicer edge on the cut my favorite brand and style Of course all of this is probably only things an electrician would notice or ever think about... I'm sure most customers are satisfied with this result, and are just happy to have better lightning!

    • Thats what i consider proper too. A gap in between is just ugly and looks like an amateur tried to fit it. Also im pretty sure its safer to run the conduit into the junction box because it provides more protection for the cable. In the Netherlands i never see those gaps thankfully...

Great job, very clean and easy to fix if something need's a repair or change.

  • I need to correct you, because i know that 1,5mm2 is rated for about 10Amps. (Basic rule 6A for every 1mm2 ) means for 1,5mm2 it will be 9A (10Amp), 2,5mm2 wire is rated for 16Amps.

Aber wenns nur bei dem Licht und den paar Steckdosen bleibt dann ist das ganze soweit in Ordnung. Kompressor, Schweißgerät oder Lademöglichkeit fürs E-Auto kann man so natürlich vergessen. Den FI mit dem Duspol zu testen ist auch ein wenig mager, eig. hätte da ein Installationstester ran müssen welcher Auslösezeit, Auslösestrom, Isolationswiderstand und Schleifenwiderstand misst.

  • I'd like to mention, in Germany it takes 3,5 Years of Training to become an "official" professional electrical worker. During this training or "Ausbilding" you get about 300€ to 700€ per month. At the end you will have theoretical and practical exams and when you succeed you get your "Facharbeiterbrief", a smal notarised document saying you are a professional electrician. This goes for most jobs which have a government controlled training. Although pay ranges from 240€ up to 1,200€ as far as I know. I may have missed the point at which minimum wages for trainees have been introduced.

  • As I refer to german code I continue in german : Du erwähnst im Video das 1,5mm² mit 16A belastet werden kann, das stimmt leider nicht (mehr). Nach VDE dürfen 1,5mm² Kabel mit maximal 13A belastet werden, in ungünstigen Situationen ( hohe Umgebungstemperatur, hohe Dichte an Kabeln z.B. im Kabelkanal, ... ) sogar deutlich weniger. Wenn Du 16A haben möchtest/musst, dann ist 2,5mm² Querschnitt erforderlich. Hinzu kommt das übliche Steckdosen nicht für 16A zugelassen sind, meist sind das 10-13A Dauerstrom. Siehe z.B. Nach EU Recht ist zudem derjenige für die GESAMTE elektrische Anlage verantwortlich ( im Sinne von Haftung ) der zuletzt daran gearbeitet hat - auch wenn er nur eine Leuchte angeschlossen hat. Somit sind in der Regel die "Hobbybastler" raus da die schlicht die Haftung nicht übernehmen können. For any other : Please refer to you local code for max. current on wires.

  • Is it common in Germany to use NYM cables for all installation? I'm wondering since here in Switzerland it seems more common to use single wires in conduits. Using cables is permitted but considered kind of bad style by some more rigorous electricians, in particular when building a new installation/wiring from scratch. The advantage of single wires is that you have more colors available, so you can keep consistent color coding throughout an installation - e.g. you never have to "abuse" a grey or black wire for a switched phase - there are purple and orange wires for that ;-) Also, you can always just add one more wire later on when you need it ...

    M.M.Před 2 měsíci
    • Cable is simple if all you need is l/N/PE. Soon as you need something a bit more elaborate, like lights with more than one switch you need extra wires going in different directions. With cable this gets complicated very fast, with wire in tube its a simple matter of pulling all the wires needed where needed.

  • Solid Strand? here in Italy we use unipolar multicore flexible wire (without the gray sheath) and the conduits goes directly into the boxes through cable glands and small portions of flexible pipe. The cross section of the wires must be 1.5 square millimeters for lamps and at least 2.5 square millimeters for sockets. In an apartment, especially if in a condominium, it is not unusual to find the section of line between the meter in a common niche and the general panel of 4 or 6 square millimeters for a 3.3 KW power contract, naturally for single-phase contracts because the three-phase current is used only for industrial plants. It seems to me that all houses in Germany have a three-phase contract, is that possible?

And cable heated up whitin 5 minutes. 3x2,5mm² can handle 16A easily. Usually in estonia we use 3G1,5mm² for lightning fixtures. 3G2,5mm² for sockets. 3means 3 conduits G means with ground wire.

    • The most noticeable difference for me was drawing outlets on a plan. We draw them 180° rotated, half-circle part to the wall. It was very uncanny to see them drawn the other way in the video The little diffencies: in russia there aren't any requirements for cutting conductors 5 cm before the boxes. We cut them just before boxes. It looks neater that way too. We also usually use cable canals or flexible tubes as a conductor. I personally also wouldn't use wago for connecting wires, because they do need maintenance once in a while. I dunno if it's a personal choice or best german practices.

  • Italian electrician here. I see some big mistakes: - you didn't specify that this is an external electric system, suitable for garages or storage rooms, for houses there are normally conduits inside the walls - the plastic conduits should arrive inside the junction boxes, NOT STOPPING 5 cm BEFORE! See Gewiss external boxes, for example. To see an example; Furthermore the way you did it there is a risk of humidity and liquids entering the switches together with the cables. - having the conduits and the junction boxes being a closed system, you could use separate cables instead of insulated triple clable (or 5-cables), separate cables have better performance, less resistance and inductance, insulated cables are used in fact only for external applications, where the user could touch the cable. - the old fuse looks not anymore by the code, and not necessary because of the new RCBO, so I would remove it and check the size of the cables from the source to the new RCBO, they should probably be substituted as well - the copper part of the cables should be twisted before inserted in the components or better should be used a crimped terminal ("capocorda") - the PE should be tested in all plugs and lamps before closing, there is a special device to do so

  • Bloody hell, what a way to overcomplicate a simple job. Not even up to Australian standards.
