Hi Guys, reading the mail...
don't forget this is for 'reduced low voltage systems' ie 110 C.T.E. & as rocky says only if outlet connectors in use so answer I think would be no if just moulded string of festoon lamps, incedentally th old screw together 'spike' type lampholders now banned.
BTW passed my 17th C&G yesterday on first ever 2382 online exam, boy am I relieved....CEO of NAPIT came & took pickies, lots of adrenalin running down legs...funny smell that adrenalin, now got problem of using two sets of regs in parallel for a long time yet ,
Congratulations to Sparx I have another 6 weeks before mine. And yes Rocky I think your right. And funny it is exactly what our teacher said caused most problems with regs not reading the definitions properly. And I did know the old self sealing cable can no longer be used on 110 volt. Think OK on 24 volt though I would hope so anyway as I have installed a lot of machines using ASii PLC stuff which works the same way with two cables one yellow and one black with clamp on units saved a lot of wiring.
Insulation-piercing lampholders shall not be used unless the cables and lampholders are compatible and the lampholders are non-removable once fitted to the cable.
I thought they were totally banned got it wrong again.
