SEMPEO2-33 - SQA Unit Code FP3E 04Wiring and testing electrical equipment and circuitsOverviewThis standard covers a broad range of basic competences that you need towire up and test electrical equipment and circuits. It will prepare you for entryinto the engineering or manufacturing sectors, creating a progression betweeneducation and employment, or it will provide a basis for the development ofadditional skills and occupational competences in the working environment.The activities will include the wiring and termination of a range of cables, suchas single and multicore cables, screened cables, fire resistant and armouredcables. You will be required to make a variety of terminations and to connect arange of electrical components, such as switches/switchgear, distributionpanels, motors and starters, control systems, sensors and actuators, safetydevices, and luminaires.You will be required to select the appropriate tools, materials and equipment touse, based on the operations to be performed and the components to beconnected. You will be expected to use appropriate tools and techniques forthe wiring of the various electrical components and connectors that make upthe electrical system/circuit. In addition, you will be expected to make allnecessary electrical connections to the switches, relays, sensors/actuators andother devices, as appropriate to the equipment and circuit being produced. Thewiring and testing activities will include making all necessary checks andadjustments to the circuit, including continuity, polarity, insulation resistancevalues, and ensuring that the equipment functions to the specification.Your responsibilities will require you to comply with health and safetyrequirements and organisational policy and procedures for the wiring andtesting activities undertaken. You will need to take account of any potentialdifficulties or problems that may arise with the wiring and testing activities, orwith the tools and equipment used, and to seek appropriate help and advice indetermining and implementing a suitable solution. You will work under a highlevel of supervision, whilst taking responsibility for your own actions and for thequality and accuracy of the work that you carry out.Your underpinning knowledge will provide an understanding of your work, andwill enable you to apply appropriate electrical wiring and testing procedures andtechniques safely. You will understand the wiring and testing methods andprocedures used, and their application, and will know about the various cablesand components used to produce the circuits, to the required depth to provide asound basis for carrying out the activities to the required specification.You will understand the safety precautions required when carrying out theSEMPEO2-33 Wiring and testing electrical equipment and circuits1
