A question I've come across recently:
We have a portable genset (Honda 5kva) which we use around the property for working on fences etc, where we need 240V. We have one of those orange4-outlet ELD safety switches, which I bought with the idea it would cut the power if someone was stupid enough to cut the power cord.
However, it has been pointed out to me the ELD wont trip because the genset isnt earthed. Does this sound right?
If this is correct, is there any way to get an ELD to work on a portable genset?
Should I simply keep the ELD outlet for the shed?
I already have ELD's fitted to all the buildings as it is, so it would really be only handy for the 4 outlets...
Any info appreciated.
