Want to buy the 50L model in NL

Unread postby paddye » Wed Mar 12, 2014 7:32 pm

Hello,

Does anyone have or know someone who has a 50L model in NL? I want to know if I need a special circuit to run it or will our standard 220v 16A socket do the trick?

Cheers
Paddy

in case anyone stumbles across this post in the future, I checked with an electrician and a standard dutch socket can provide the 16A feed provided nothing else is working on that ring. Most houses also have a dedicated feed for the washing machine which is also 16A and can cope with 4000w.

Indeed, as you have a 240V socket with a 16A fuse this will power up to 3840W. I can't speak for the Netherlands, but in Belgium you're allowed to use a 20A "automaat" as a substitute for a 16A "smeltzekering". So the socket circuits in my renovated house can handle a total of 4800W per circuit (in my case: 1 circuit = 1 room).

I brew in my cellar and I have a few sockets in my fuse box (zekeringskast) with each having it's own fuse. This allows me to plug the BM directly into the fuse box without worrying to overload a circuit. I always use an extension cord with 2.5mm² copper wires in it. Never use one with 1.5mm² copper wires as this might not be sufficient! And always keep it as short as possible and fully unroll the cord to avoid resistance building up.

I have dedicated socket in my bathroom that can handle the draw and a mate (qualified) who can put a socket in by my fuse box for me and I'll build an extension lead myself with cables and plugs that I know can handle the draw if swmbo wants to wash while i brew.
