Appendix 3 Limiting earth fault loop impedance tables from BS 7671: 2008

Table 41.2 Maximum earth fault loop impedance (Zs) for fuses, for 0.4 s disconnection time with U0 of 230 V (see Regulation 411.4.6).
(a) General purpose (gG) fuses to BS 882.2 and BS 886 Rating (A) Zs () 6 8.52 10 5.11 16 2.70 20 1.77 25 1.44 32 1.04

(b) Fuses to BS 1361 Rating (A) Zs () 5 10.45 15 3.28 20 1.70 30 1.15 (d) Fuses to BS 1362 15 2.55 20 1.77 30 1.09 Rating (A) Zs () 3 16.4 13 2.42

(c) Fuses to BS 3036 Rating (A) Zs () 5 9.58

NOTE: The circuit loop impedances given in the table should not be exceeded when the conductors are at their normal operating temperature. If the conductors are at a different temperature when tested, the reading should be adjusted accordingly.
