Hi , I am new to this Niceic stuff so a bit of advice needed.

I am about to install 38 x tap off units to an underfloor busbar system .

Each tap off is going to supply one twin socket mounted to the underside of a desk.

Question : do I need to do a minor works for each of the tap off points or is there a way I can put them all on one .

I would normally have downloaded the iet blank forms and filled them in but now being an niceic member I have to use their forms.

Advice please

Regards

Do you need any at all - essentially you are just "plugging in" an extension lead.

At worst I would ask for one per bus bar (12 I recall) - ie one per circuit

I know nothing about the system you're working on but normally it's one MWC for each circuit you've modified, eg if you add three sockets to a ring final it's only one MWC,

i would also just do one, recording the worst results from your test's.

one other point, just because you are now niceic you don't "have" to use their forms, i use ones that come with easycert.

Thanks for advice.

I actually got this job on the strength of being a member and certificates have been asked for.

I like the idea of one for each busbar and record the highest Zs.

Makes sense.
