Although if sleeved with green/yellow then they are adequately
identified as a CPC even if a shared sleeve is used... so not convinced
that requirement precludes a shared sleeve.
(note, I am not defending the practice - as already stated, individual
sleeving is better)
earth would have a a double meaning in that case. the other being the
soil you hammer a conductive rod into that you attach the CPC to if you
have a TT install.
Also earth/soil is not a very good conductor as pure copper which is
what most CPC is made of.....
Its not actually been renamed (in recent times), its an alternative
technical name with a slightly more nuanced meaning... so when
discussing specific requirements of BS7671 its sometimes easier to use
their language rather than the common terms.
Isnt that the EU's job?
Buried in te back of my mind is the SF story about a society in which no
one works except the very few that can get government funding for
projects...two chaps decide that the solution is to apply for funding
for a projectt to determine and asist people in finding new catepgores
of things that attract government fudning.
Till I actually visited a company funded by the EU...
Of the ten staff, nine were employed in getting funding, and the tenth
didnt appear to be doing anything at all..
(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to
John, as you and I have discussed the cpc/earth terminology usage in the
wiki articles I know how you and I feel about the correct usage of the name
cpc - well we agreed where to use the term. But if you were to call in at my
local electrical wholsalers and ask for "cpc sleeving" they would either
insult you or stand there looking blank and say "what?":-)
Now is it cpc or CPC and can you use either?:-)
Well indeed - although I would point out I was not the one to introduce
the term in this thread.
(in fact in my local TLC the other day I had to explain to the chap
serving what a roll of mini trunking was - although they sell they stuff
he had never seen it, and gave me a rather blank look when I asked for it!)

If the bare ends are twisted, sleeved and conected to the same

If they are sleeved and terminated separately then it's no more

Your statement only makes (some) sense if you are referring to
sleeving and terminating separately and *then* twisting the cables so
you can no longer tell one from the other.
