                                                     Secure an installation 

                                                     

                                                    • Inside a machine, water and heat can harm the insulants and the outer enclosure can therefore come into contact with a live part.

                                                     

                                                     
                                                     
                                                     

                                                     All appliances for stationary use must be connected to earth by the yellow-green conductor. A dangerous insulation fault will in that case cause immediate tripping of a protection system.


                                                    For appliances for stationary use, the contractor can place the entire electric power supply out of reach. In this case, protection by the circuit breaker is sufficient.
