Water and electricity successfully mixed for the first time.....Unfortunately the success was short lived as would be inventor "Anonymous" was killed while wiring a bomb to a competitors car.....

I told you all the electricity would leak out if you left it switched on without a plug in it. With these special specs on, you can actually see it.

Dear Gurus,

I have urgent need for an electrical valve to control the stray current flow.

Normal MCCB does not function properly when put in circuit.

Please advise if these connectors are the correct for this application.

Urgent response, with examples, needed.

20A sockets with water cooling prevents overheating at full load. The 30 A version (pat pending) will be vapour cooled.

Todays lesson --- Split Plug Current Flow.

See Jimmy you have current flow at the outlet. Now go turn on that switch on the wall and you will activate flow to the bottom of the outlet. Thus Split plug current flow is proven.
