Re: [APD] Aromat Ballasts Arrived

Incredible. In the small expense category, generally the three LED plug in models check for correct, open ground, open neutral, open hot, hot-ground reverse and hot-neutral reverse fault conditions but rarely are they capable for Ground-Neutral Faults or Ground Neutral swaps upstream. What makes the Ground and Neutral swap a problem, as Jerry noticed, is that the neutral is grounded back at the main box.

>Unforrtunately, you'll be hardpressed to find one of these that detects
swapped ground and neutral.

in canada they can all test for that, they test ground neutral, ground hot,
hot neutral, or disconnected anything except they cant tell if ground is
connected.  they have 3 leds that corrispond to codes for different faults.
