Short USB Socket Introduces Misunderstanding Of Socket Installation
Apr 03, 2018

1,Short USB socket position is too low. Many households feel that they are too tall and unsightly when installing sockets, and they will be installed in lower hidden places. However, Dr. Xia Dong of the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences indicated that it is easy to cause water to splash into the socket when the floor is mopped, resulting in leakage accidents. According to industry regulations, it is better to have a wall-mounted socket not less than 1.8 meters from the ground; concealed sockets should not be less than 0.3 meters from the ground. The socket of the kitchen and toilet should be 15 meters above the ground, and the outlet of the air conditioner should be at least 2 meters.

2, only one loop. Xia Dong said that there is only one loop in the old house. Once any circuit is short-circuited, the electricity in the entire room will be paralysed. In general, two or three loops can be selected for the socket, and the kitchen and the toilet are all one way. The air conditioner uses a loop.

Multiple appliances share the same outlet. Xia Dong said that this practice would overload the appliance and cause a fire. Air-conditioning, washing machines, range hoods and other high-power appliances are best to use a separate outlet. In general, the best in the bedroom

Install 4 sets of sockets, a group of 25 square meters in the living room, and a group of 1.2 square meters in the kitchen.

4, the short body UsB socket wire installation. Xia Dong told reporters that the power conductor must use a copper cross section. If you live in an old house, you must replace the original aluminum wire with a copper wire. Because the aluminum wire is easily oxidized, it is easy to light the joint. Once

According to surveys, the incidence of electrical fires in residential buildings using aluminum wires is several dozen times that of copper wires. In addition, many families will use slotted embedment and dark pipe laying for aesthetic reasons. Xia Dong reminds that when wiring, it is necessary to follow the "fire line into the switch, the zero line

"Into the lamp" principle, but also to set leakage protection device on the socket

5. The short USB socket lacks protective measures. Xia Dong reminded that there are often water and cooking fumes in kitchens and bathrooms. Therefore, it is best to install splash-proof boxes or plastic baffles on the socket panel to effectively prevent short circuits caused by oil and water vapor intrusion.

For families with young children, use safety sockets with safety flaps to prevent children from touching them with heavy fingers or metal objects.
