    I am looking for an adapter to enable connection of 4mm shrouded plugs
    to a BS socket so a multimeter can safely be plugged into a socket and
    if the adapter is left it would not represent a hazard to a user of the
    installation due to it's IP rating. A 13A BS plug with 4mm sockets
    suitable for shrouded plugs will do.
    Does any test equipment manufacturer make such an adaptor.

    Also looking for BS plug with P connected (v. low Z) to E, but with a
    *resettable* circuit breaker incorporated. This is for measurement of R1
    plus R2 during faultfinding. The circuit breaker on plug required in
    case the unit is left plugged in by mistake and the circuit is
    energised. The circuit breaker for the final circuit will not
    necessarily trip before the supply company fuse on some of the
    installations worked on.
  2. Of course not, since multimeters are not intended for permanent
    installations.There are voltmeters intended for permanent installations, but
    they fit in boxes.
