Hi All,

I'm connecting a Brass E27 | ES | Edison Screw Batten Lampholder [7607ET PLU5586] to a glavinised metal conduit through boxs, (4 of them in a row)  which will be connected to more conduit back to the consumer unit.

The Lamp holders will be earthed and the cable run back the the junction box were in turn it will connected to the earth from the consumer unit?

Do i need to earth the conduict though boxes as they will be touching the metal base plates of the lamp holders?

Hi,
What i would do if it was me doing the install is wire a 3core to each galv box then do a join in the galv box so you will have line in line out then a small wire to the lampholder as the lampholders are only designed to have a single cable in each terminal.
Then at the first galv box take a small fly lead to the earthing point on the galv box, this will ensure that all the galv boxes+pipework is earthed then earth lampholder has its own earth.

in theory you wont need to earth each lampholder but better to be safe than sorry in my opinion.

Hope that makes sense?

Thanks

Richard

Grab some 0.75mm flex from a local DIY store that would be be easiest option, grab a meter or so and cut it up.

Hi Richard,

My next question is for the next light along, i have bought a Kilner Jar Kit22 and cord to run from the Jar back up to the galvinised through box.

What clamp do i need to grip the cord and how do i secure the Clamp to the conduit box below?

Hi Richard,

They worked a treat thank you.  My proof of concept is coming along nearly ready to place my Order.

My next question is around which Bulbs to use in the Kilner jar Kitt22.  

My light strip will have two Kilner Jars hanging with a Edison Screw Batten Lampholder in the middle.    

We would like to use the tubular or Candle in the Kilner jar and either of teh Bell ones in teh batten Lamp-holder,  


Will that work?

Thanks
