Not at all constrution sites.
In the UK, electric tools and portable lighting at construction sites are
sometimes fed from a centre-tapped system with only 55 V between live
conductors and the earth. This system is used with 110 V equipment and
therefore no neutral conductor is needed. The intention is to reduce the
electrocution hazard that may exist when using electrical equipment at a
wet or outdoor construction site. An incidental benefit is that the
filaments of 110 V incandescent lamps are thicker and therefore
mechanically more rugged and shock-resistant than 230 V lamps.
I've noticed he seems to do that. At first I thought he was a webtv
user, but I checked the headers and it must be something else.
Maybe we could all chip (obligatory wood reference) in a few pennies
apiece to buy him a clue.
