Phase Sequence Test |

Phase Sequence Testing

Regulation 612.12 of BS 7671 requires the checking of phase sequence in multi-phase installations, in order to ensure that the phase sequence is maintained throughout the whole of the installation.

On the City and Guilds 2391 practical assessments, the phase sequence on the 3 phase installation would affect the rotation of the motor on the motor supply circuit (motor not present on the exam).

You will be required to select the appropriate Phase Sequence tester and perform a test at the Main Switch and at the motor connections.

Both tests should indicate the same phase sequence.

Next we move on to RCD testing.
