You never thought of screwing the d-hole chassis parts on the back of the panel? Its easier to switch stuff around without having to desolder everything.

I don't believe you understand me. Of course you are not going to mount those black panels, what I meant was.... Why screw all the d-hole connectors in the panel before soldering them, if you solder them first and then mount them on the back of your panel, when you make a mistake in ..... I don't know..... colorcoding, and switched two channels by accident... you could move them to the right place very easy without having to desolder everything.

Hey Andy,

The law is that you need to keep the equipment in a safe condition, you don't necessarily have to PAT test but it does make life easier. For the most part, visual checks and inspections by someone competent should be enough. Some insurance companies / landlords require that you do it, so I don't know what your situation is.

Maybe you can save some poundies!

(love the build by the way, living in Liverpool I've been stalking this one for ages )

HI

Hi mate-

Cheers for the Post- your quite correct- we bought our own tester to perform and identify any and all pieces of kit used in our workspace that could cause an "issue" be it a shock hazard or interference with our earthing system- this includes items of equipment brought in by a punter-any equipment..... having electrical safety tests done on the main install is a mandatory annual requirement and we have all the testing equipment and a competent person on hand to do this in house..........

Electrical testing and recording keeping will form part of the company's quality manual and it my book is a vital requirement :-) Some other people on here think differently to me- but that's up to them - I know what I want to achieve with Analogue Baby and for me this is all part of it..... acting with due diligence- it's like anything else- everything is dandy until somebody gets seriously hurt or worse.........

Legal Requirements

The legislation of specific relevance to electrical maintenance is the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.

The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 puts the duty of care upon both the employer and the employee to ensure the safety of all persons using the work premises. This includes the self employed.

The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 states:

"Every employer shall make suitable and sufficient assessment of:

(a) the risks to the health and safety of his employees to which they are exposed whilst at work, and
(b) the risks to ensure the health and safety of persons not in his employment arising out of or in connection with the conduct by him or his undertaking."
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 states:

"Every employer shall ensure that work equipment is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair."

The PUWER 1998 covers most risks that can result from using work equipment. With respect to risks from electricity, compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 is likely to achieve compliance with the PUWER 1998.

PUWER 1998 only applies to work equipment used by workers at work. This includes all work equipment (fixed, transportable or portable) connected to a source of electrical energy. PUWER does not apply to fixed installations in a building. The electrical safety of these installations is dealt with only by the Electricity at Work Regulations.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 states:

"All systems shall at all times be of such construction as to prevent, so far as reasonably practicable, such danger."

"As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as reasonably practicable, such danger."

"'System' means an electrical system in which all the electrical equipment is, or may be, electrically connected to a common source of electrical energy and includes such source and such equipment"

"'Electrical Equipment' includes anything used, intended to be used or installed for use, to generate, provide, transmit, transform, rectify, convert, conduct, distribute, control, store, measure or use electrical energy."

Scope of the legislation

It is clear that the combination of the HSW Act 1974, the PUWER 1998 and the EAW Regulations 1989 apply to all electrical equipment used in, or associated with, places of work. The scope extends from distribution systems down to the smallest piece of electrical equipment.

It is clear that there is a requirement to inspect and test all types of electrical equipment in all work situations.


Laters :-)

The company who made our panels populated them for us. When we fit them, the wireman will probably remove the connectors to wire them in then re-populate the panel.

Right you are buddy. It's top that you're taking it seriously. The shame, I find, is that not everybody does. Recent experience of working at a college showed me that PAT testing really can be a farce - had pieces of equipment with bare wires showing and in various states of disrepair passed by the company that did it. Common sense would be a better safety test in that case.. and cheaper!

Coming from somebody in Merseyside this is looking like its going to be the best studio in the North West. I haven't seen anything like this build, and I've seen most of them. Reaching for the upper echelons of best studios in England. Id like to hear some rates and services if you guys have the time to share. Sorry if you might have covered it already its a big thread. Approx is cool.

The first part of a pat test is a visual inspection. The testing unit has to be told that the item passes the visual inspection before it carries out any other tests. We have a very sophisticated pat tester which performs on load tests as well as all the other tests. It also tests for earth leakage which is very bad for noise floor in a clean power system.

Hi

Hi

Cheers for the kind words.

We set out from the onset of this build to create the finest control room we could that was a ground up 5.1 / 7.1 mix space.

What we believe we have is one the finest mix spaces in Europe thats been built away from inner London - this is a first - the first studio in the North of England to feature a fully scoring capable 88RS - this alone was a massive financial commitment but what it brings is the chance of doing projects that automatically would have gone to the large London studios by default- it's not all been a bed of roses -its been 2 years of unbelievable stress and serious commitment by all involved to make this happen and to get it to this stage.

We'll be open before the end of the year mate.

I'll look forward to show you around .

Thanks for your interest .

Best



Andy

Thanks for the gentlemanly replies guys. 5.1 Is definitely on the cards in the future for me. Along with sending mixing duties to such a glorious studio with reputable engineers. I will save your contact details, I need to get on your website too. If you offered mastering too I'd love to stay local for mixing and mastering. Thanks again.

Final electrical testing today

Hi all

Another boring day but an important one - Chubbfingers and Rick "ace electrical installation engineer" are final testing today.

Main point today was to check our technical earth spike at the back of the studio -

Just taken a call from them and Ricks over the moon - the reading is an amazing result - we'll post all of this incase anybody is interested - but it means the noise floor on our clean power is incredibly LOW- "Air" in London had to spend over £100k on copper rods in their carpark to get a 1 ohm reading - I believe we were 2.8 ohms -on our copper rods - that's is an amazing feat considering our resources - you all know my standpoint on this type of thing-at Analogue Baby NOTHING is left to chance.

I have an important announcement to make soon - well I think it's important anyway- full news to follow -

Latest pics are up on our Facebook page -

Link for facebook is on our website -

Analogue Baby - World-Class Surround-Capable Mixing & Tracking Facility

Cheers have a good weekend !!!
