Little to big is fine.
Big to litte, you need some sort of distribution board / fuse / MCB.
Circuit breakers, fuses, etc, are ther to stop your place from burning
down. They are not there to stop you from killing yourself and / or
ELCBs / RCBOs / RCD / whatever we're calling them nows, they might stop
you from !instant death! but I'd rather you touched that wire and not
And me, my house has a 100A fuse from the electric company, 100A RCB
isolator, half the house is fed from an RCD. And here in blighty, we get
230 -10% +6% (otherwise known as 240V) through the wire.
All very weird thsi stuff coming up on the list considering I seem to
have been talking about electrickery all week on various lists, in the
pub and at the factory.
I have coveted a friend's place, which used to be a printing shop. He
has a 3 phase board in his basement. Mmmmm.... 3 phase.
