Frequently Asked Questions

Why My Ecodial L international version is not proposing the multi core cable results not beyond 240 or 300 mm2.

For the Multi-core cable, software is showing the 240 or 300 mm2 conductor as a maximum cross sectional area result.
Because, when the load is 3P+N+PE (4 wired) the standard cable offer supported by the software is having 240 mm2 as a maximum
conductor cross sectional area for Multi-core cable.
 But, when you do the calculation for the other wiring systems, with Cu or Al Multi-core cables software will go up to 400 or 300 mm2
cross sectional area. Some of the example wiring systems, for that software will find multi core cables up to 400 mm2 are as follows.
In General, final cable solution is based on the standard cable offer supported by the software.

Is the Clipsal 343 a 2 way switch

Yes, the Clipsal 343 is a 4 terminal 2-way ceiling switch

Why choose Type B RCD for 3 Phase Variable Speed Drives?

For the 3 Phase Variable Speed Drives, the RCD type B or type B-Si is particularly suitable.
It protects against fault currents with DC offset, which is true for three-phase power converters. In addition, it has enhanced immunity against nuisance tripping caused by:

  • EMC common mode filters connected upstream VSD.
    Type B has a tripping delay allowing the inrush current to flow on power up.

  • The permanent switching leakage currents existing in power converters (ex: 25kHz).
    Type B include a "low pass" filter to ensure a trigger threshold which increases with frequency while complying with the personal protection curve (fibrillation).

Please note: if the required sensitivity is 300mA, Selective type RCD should be proposed ensuring a non-triggering time of 50ms. 

More information can be found on the Earth Fault Protection guide: https://download.schneider-electric.com/files?p_enDocType=Catalog&p_File_Name=CA908066E+%28web%29.pdf&p_Doc_Ref=CA908066E

With regards to installation of these RCDs, they are mounted upstream of the Variable Speed Drives.

Video: How to set up and test ground fault alarm in Micrologic P and H trip units for PowerPact P and R and Masterpact NT and NW breakers

Configuring & Testing Ground Fault Alarm on Micrologic P & H Trip Units

Product Line:
P and H trip units for PowerPact P, R and Masterpact NT, NW
FFTK (S33595)
M2CTEST adapter

Mainly intended for 5.0P and 5.0H trip units, no Ground Fault trip function, Ground Fault alarm only.
However, this procedure will also work for 6.0P and 6.0H trip units that also have Ground Fault trip feature.
Programmable contacts (M2C or M6C) must also be installed.
No other trip unit types are included in this article.

The trip unit instruction by itself may not be clear on the exact sequence to program ground fault alarm.
Also a procedure is needed to test ground fault alarm without doing primary injection.

Setting up the ground fault alarm on a Micrologic 5.0P or 5.0H trip unit is a 3 step process. First, you turn on the ground fault alarm and set the pickup/drop out levels. Then you assign the ground fault alarm to an M2C or M6C contact. Finally you set up the alarm mode to a non-latching contact. For more deatiled instructions, reference Micrologic 5.0P instruction bulletin 48049-137-05 or see the video below.

Ground Fault Alarm test without using primary injection, using the full function test kit S33595 and the M2CTEST special tool adapter for the full function test kit:
Use the attached EAV34309 instructions for this testing procedure, general information, precautions, and proper connection.

What's the difference between a regular Home member, an Administrator and the Homeowner?

The Homeowner has access to all functions. Administrator has access to all functions except the ability to transfer the homeowner rights, delete the home and granting administrator rights to other members. A common member only has access to operate devices, receive notifications (alarm, moment/automation trigger, device added/removed and invite) from a home, configure device settings and schedules.

I’m building a new home and have been thinking about installing smart home controls, but my budget is already stretched, and I really don’t think I can afford it…

Having a smart home doesn’t need to be expensive or extensive. With a range of scalable options, Clipsal makes smart living accessible to everyone.

Simply choose the smart home solution that works for you, your lifestyle and budget – whether that be two switches and a few smart sockets, or the whole nine yards. 

Clipsal offers in-home Bluetooth control and full out-of-home control via C-Bus, so you can opt for as little – or as much – connectedness as you like.

Clipsal also offers some clever electrical accessories; start building your smart home with Infrascan Motion Sensors to save energy by never accidentally leaving the lights on. You may also enjoy using timers, time-clocks and dimmers.

On the higher end of smart home solutions, C-Bus gives you the ability to control lighting, irrigation, air conditioning, multiroom audio, windows and blinds, home theatre, home security, keyless entry and more.
