ITT: Post power points from your country.


This is the Australian power point configuration, with the earth on the bottom and active and neutral on the left and right, respectively.
>>
Aus power points also come in singles like this, but doubles are more common.
>>
i recently learnt american power points don't have switches and and laughed
>>
>>675622535
It's called a ground Faggot not an "earth" wtf

Do you faggots just say "don't forget to earth that wire"
>>
>>675622925
Really? Why the hell not? I guess they've never know the joy of turning something off with your toes.
>>
>>675622986
...yeah

>>675622925

American here.

What are the switches for?
>>
>>
>>675623160
...to turn them on....
>>
>>675623160
It's just a way of turning off the power to something without removing the plug.
>>
>>675622986
I think earth is just as commonly used as ground.
>>
Germany.

Its a Socket with Lightswitch over it.
>>
Can't understand why people say active, live, neutral.

When it's obviously positive and negative.

Neutral especially makes zero sense.
>>
or off

think of a plug socket like ur gf, you dont want her turned on all the time, she will constantly be wet and asking for the D, what if ur busy, tired or want a sandwiche she just wants the D evuntually she will take another D and cheat, same with plug

so we switch it off so it doesnt go around being a socket whore
>>
>>675622746
>>675623510
For Ausfag sparkies (electricians) it's live, phase and earth.
>>
>>675623186
>>675623434
You'd think flat pins would be easier to make and to use, so I wonder why they use round ones at all.

Italian fag here.

No switches but usually we use normal light switches linked to the plugs.

Also we use a lot of schukos cause Salò
>>
>>675623651
>>675623510

Some of my relatives used to work for telecom back in the day and they usually referred to them as active and neutral. I'm not really clear on why, and perhaps things have changed or their expression wasn't common.

>>675623890
Yeah same here, dad worked for telecom NZ for 25 years. Taught me all I know, perhaps incorrectly?
>>
>>675623990
No, the switches on the power points don't replace off switches on devices. It's just away of turning of the power from the wall without removing the plug.
>>
>>675623960
Denmark is a smiley face :)
>>
>>675623990
we have switches on them too, but we also have the switches on the power point which cuts power COMPLETELY
>>
>>675623960
USA, Canada, Mexico look angry.
>>
>>675623960
Israel easily. Wtf is up with that?

EU is so close to master race, but their adapters need to be gigantic because they're not flush with the wall. Reversible plugs are GOAT

Our Aus/NZ/China ones are surprisingly shit. I often find multiboards that have plugs that don't work properly any more, get blocked on the other side somehow or only work if you carefully place the plug in. Fuck these dumb shits.
>>
>>675623990
Everything's the same except we have an extra switch on the powerpoint to cut or give power.
>>
>>675623160

American electrician here, you can get receptacles with switches, just not as common, we typically use appliances with switches and separate wall switches for lighting.
>>
>>675623960
Swiss and Brazilian plugs are actually different.
Ground pin is 2mm higher in Brazil.

I like the switches on them. Wish that was the norm with US power points.

UK ones are pretty odd looking.

I had no idea we're the only ones with switches on them. Learn something new everyday

>>675623428
I've never heard that until now... sooo
>>
>>675623960
It's weird that the only one here with switches is the aus power point. I didn't realise switches were so unique.

reason why aus GPO's have switches it thanks to aus having the highest safety standards in the world.

Been out of the trade for ten years & last i knew it was active, neutral, earth & switch wire
>>
>>675624097
Both my parents were working with Telecom, which made the redundancy pretty hard on the family. It was good while it lasted, apparently.

>>675624575
the British design is really smart though

And China, but they invert them.

>>675625131
Haha dad had to fight for his redundancy. I asked him a year ago if he regretted leaving and he said yes. We would have been really wealthy.
>>
>>675624890
so is one prong slightly smaller so it can only be plugged in in one direction?

>>675625359
yep, but this variant has both prongs equal to plug it either way
>>
>>675625632
couldn't you plug it in upside down though? unless the spacing is different or something.
>>
>>675625786
Bottom is definitely smaller.
An Asian wouldn't be strong enough to force it in the wrong way though.
>>
>>675625786
also, i dont have the one prong larger version

Doesn't matter. Earth is obviously in the middle.

Amer electrician here again, tamper proof recept available in us as well, becoming more common in New construction I believe
>>
>>675625133
Neat video. I think there are shuttered options in Oz, but they aren't required or standard. They definitely have long earth pins, and I think the earth is on the bottom to keep it connected if something pushes on it from about. Not really clear about that last bit, but I recall something about it's design being a safety feature in itself.
>>
>>675625786
>>675625971
so it doesn't matter which way they go in? never knew that, just kind of assumed it would only work one way.

I didn't actually know that about the aus GPOs. I wonder if clipsal, or schnider's "chinese clipsal" has their own equivalent range of bakelite...
>>
>>675626175
they usually dont unless your plug has one prong thats larger
>>675625854
you could plug it upside down
>>675625896
my prongs are both equally small so they fit either way. some who buy plugs with different sized prongs usually shave the larger one

my country has 2 variants which would be both slots equal or one slot larger than the other so they basically shave the prongs or remove the circle prong(i have no idea what its called) like this
>>
>>675623960
Israel is literally Australia upside down...

does polarity not matter with the plugs that can go in both ways?

The US has multiple circuits in a house. Each room is usually it's own circuit. Kitchens are usually 3 or more circuits. Each circuit can be a different voltage and amp load. Most rooms are wired at 15 amps, bathrooms and kitchens at 20 amps, large appliances at 20-40 amps.

The main line into the house is 240 volt and 150, 200, 250 amps depending on the size of house. From the breaker box circuits are divided out. Most are 15-20 amps. 15 is very common since the smaller gauge wire is cheaper.

>>675628776
Can confirm Czech Republic uses power strips more than niggers use crack. Everyone I know here has like 5 plugs in their whole apartment, each with a massive power strip attached.

most outlets are placed in hard to reach areas(away from kids) so yeah i guess they use extensions(what you call power strips)

>>675629528
>>675629664
cross sectional area of the cable for sizes. i would imagin 14 gauge would be about 1.5mm, 12 gauge is about 2.5mm and 10 gauge is about 6mm

What is service entrance?
The speaker box at the Maccas drive thru?

3/0
1/0
how do you even say that?
>>
>>675629948
1.5, 2, and 2.5. 6mm would be feeder line.

>>675630005

yeah sorry i was to lazy to put the squared after 1.5㎟ & 2.5㎟ but i'll put it this time....yes I glazed over when i read gauge also

>>675630005
service entrance is the power line from the transformer(mains) into the house's service panel
>>
>>675630012
Service entrance is the line from the powerline outside. Feeder is used to supply power from a main panel to a sub panel.

getting back to that infographic...
>10 gauge
>>675629672
>30 amp is 10 gauge

assuming that's about the same size as 32 amp cable in aus, that is FUCKING THICK for a solid core cable...

Italy looks like a death trap.... What the fuck is that.
Aus and china have the safest ones. Slits not holes. Angled, only goes in one way. And has switches.

Seriously who the fuck wouldnt want switches?
What if an appliance doesnt have a switch on it?
Why the fuck would you want to unplug it everytime you were done.
>>
>>675626577
in general, there are voltage drops whenever you plug in devices (slightly or huge)

so in general, yes, we try to unify. but if its 220VAC or 230VAC doesnt matter "that much", because sometimes there are voltage drops of 10V in a 230VAC line
>>
>>675631422
eh. It's a christian/catholic basis with indians/chinese fucking everywhere in major cities. Easter is just a 4 day weekend with hot-crossed buns (FROM FUKKEN BAKERS DELIGHT CUNT) and hiding chocolate in your back yard for the kiddies to find. Xmas is where you go to your richest relatives house en force and eat all the things. Wouldn't have it any other way mate.

I live an area with a lot of snake sightings in the western suburbs of Melbourne. Worst part too it's an estate. But youd have to be dumb as fuck to get bitten. Like really fucking dumb. If you see them alot you are probably less likely to be hurt. You'll grow up knowing what do. So generally most aussies would be calm around snakes. Its the spiders that are fuckers. But this is heavily dependent on you location and how tidy you are. Im in pretty messy but i see fuck all spiders let alone dangerous ones. But my parents place growing up had a heap of redbacks and white tails about, mainly outside tho. Thank fuck.
