Re: [APD] Aromat Ballasts Arrived

ah, that must be the difference where you live, in canada its now not legal
to install a pannel that has the ground and neutral bonded, they are
seperated now but old installs the ground and neutral bar are the same.
if you hold a continuity meter to the ground and the neutral in your outlet
it should not show continuity, unless you have the older style pannel where
they are connected at the panel.

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.
