§ 16 Extension piece.


About the method called the extension cable, I can not say anything good or bad. As it was, he just did not come across me, and I did not specifically look for it. Moreover, I did not have a desire to buy it. According to eyewitness accounts, it does not work, so I will bring comments believe it or not - it's up to you.

-antipozitron-: See what the authors write about this method:
To do this, you will need to prepare a socket and extension cable in a special way, and it is also possible (50/50) slightly to change the wiring diagram. In houses with euro wiring changes are minimal.
Interesting in the authors of the idea of ​​the minimum changes. So, let's see what is meant. Firstly you will have to change the phasing of the counter (swap the two wires on the input). This is already fine, if, of course, the inspectors notice, but as practice showed, they sooner or later notice, plus not everywhere there is an opportunity to carry out such manipulations. Secondly, you are remaking the extension cord in such a way that the neutral wire on the plug is connected not to the pins but to the earthing terminals. So you in the house should have an euro outlet (with earthing contacts), a good grounding and an extension to the euro outlet.

Here to us has come the test, whether it is necessary to us of something are afraid? Let's listen to the authors:
At the same time, it is very difficult to determine that there is an uncontrolled use and to prove something, since the counter will work correctly.
Bold statement, but how really? But in fact everything is exactly the opposite! The first simplest test is checking the phasing of the counter. Here you can count on a fine of $ 500 so on 500. Well, let's say this we will reject. The second check - checking the currents flowing through the zero and phase wires of the meter - 100 percent disconnect. There it is already possible to run into the sky in a cage. That's all about this method. Is it worth $ 6 each solves itself. If somewhere my thoughts sounded chaotic - write, try to explain more clearly.

Elremont: Judging by the text it's about variations on the theme of the way "hammer your grounding, connect it to the wire and rejoice"
