On site electric what will it take

Post by mike on Fri 15 Jul 2011, 5:42 pm

On sites you may find one of three power levels to use
6amp
10amp
16amp

This chart will allow you to work out what you can use


60 Watts = 0.26 Amp

100 Watts = 0.43 Amp

200 Watts = 0.87 Amp

300 Watts = 1.30 Amp

400 Watts = 1.74 Amp

500 Watts = 2.17 Amp

600 Watts = 2.61 Amp

700 Watts = 3.04 Amp

800 Watts = 3.48 Amp

900 Watts = 3.91 Amp

1000 Watts = 4.35 Amp

1100 Watts = 4.78 Amp

1200 Watts = 5.22 Amp

1300 Watts = 5.65 Amp

1400 Watts = 6.09 Amp

1500 Watts = 6.52 Amp

1600 Watts = 6.96 Amp

1700 Watts = 7.39 Amp

1800 Watts = 7.83 Amp

1900 Watts = 8.26 Amp

2000 Watts = 8.70 Amp

2100 Watts = 9.13 Amp

2200 Watts = 9.57 Amp

2300 Watts = 10.00 Amp

2400 Watts = 10.43 Amp

2500 Watts = 10.87 Amp

2600 Watts = 11.30 Amp

2700 Watts = 11.74 Amp

2800 Watts = 12.17Amp

2900 Watts = 12.61 Amp

3000 Watts = 13.04 Amp

3100 Watts = 13.48 Amp

3200 Watts = 13.91 Amp

3300 Watts = 14.35 Amp

3400 Watts = 14.78 Amp

3500 Watts = 15.22Amp


Or you could do it my way by thinking 5amps = 1000watt easy and you will have a bit in reserve

A simple explanation of what things mean

V Volts the standard measurement of electrical voltage
A Amps the standard measurement of electrical current
W Watts the standard measurement of electrical power
MCB
Miniature Circuit Breaker designed to limit the current you can draw from the campsite supply, protecting the campsite cabling

RCD
Residual Current Device designed to cut off the electricity supply if a fault occurs

The one in red is an interesting one,you will hear people say you dont need a proper hook up lead because the site electric has a MCB well as you can see all that means is it wont waste too much electric when it kills you.limiting 230volts to 16 amp will still do the trick,hopefully its the RCD that will save your life and that needs to be on your electrics so you can look after it and make sure its working.

And roughly the number of amps an item of equipment will take is the wattage on it's label divided by the volts.
