Is the amp output different to say the UK and US. It seems than a jolt from a Thai output give you a serious kick, often deadly?

Saw a hell of a lot of shoddy / dangerous looking building work and practices when i was there and that was just in passing by sites and glancing at the bars wiring setup, etc. Having worked in the building industry half my life i was staggered at the extent and amazed it was allowed to go on.

There is an electrician that is a BM here and he explained some stuff once.

I thought it was the OHM's that get you,no?

I don't fuckin know.Hate electricity.

One of my tenants phoned me on Monday,he had brought the power lines down at my property with a crane truck.

I told him I hoped he wasn't expecting me to fuckin go over there.

Fucking wires buzzing around and shit.

No thanks.Hydro came in and fixed it up.All good now.

Damn straight.The only damage to the building was where the lines (phone,cable,power) go in.It tore the fascia of the side of the building.

They lost phone,cable and juice in one shot.lol.

It is a mix of the volts and amps that will get you

 

Looking at the size of the conductors in the OP, probably split over 3 phases

Plenty there to do the job comfortably.

 

HSE, supply should be off, should have been isolated and locked, engineer with the lock down kit and only key.

Always tested before working, 1000volt insulated tools, rubber mats, the list goes on. 

 

Believe Thai system is similar to UK, create a circuit across 2 of those bars and you almost double the voltage to 400 at what looks like it could be up to 400amp conductors,

He would be toast.

 

I have seen them doing the electrics in Patts, it does not inspire confidence. Those meters you see hanging of posts by

the sidewalk with virtually no protection from the elements or drunken hands, a shock of one of them would be enough for most people.
