I know earth/ground is สายดิน - unless there's another colloquially used word?

 

What are the words used for 'live' and 'neutral'?

I need to explain to an alleged electrician, to make sure he connects them correctly.

I would try  "Bork"  for + or live    and  "Lop"   for - or neutral.

สายดิน   "sai din"  is the only one I know  of    but I'm not a Thai "electrician" 😋

L - "fai"

N - "neutron"

G - "gound" (or "din")

 

Hardly good Thai, but that's what all our sparks use.

Thanks Crossy. I was look for the Thai script for those hopefully.

Recently, Thai electrician just wrote in the broken english - "Power to ground" and obviously he means to say Earth or static electricity. For instance, the older ring fluorescent is good for earth. The newest Led circular can cause the static  electricity easily because it uses the bad magnets attaching to the ceiling.

สายไฟ - Line
สายนิวตรอน - Neutral
สายกราวด์ - Ground

 

As informed by a "competant" sparks 🙂

Thanks. Not wanting to appear pedantic (well I do)

 

สายไฟ is also use for cable, wire.

Is there an opportunity for misunderstanding by using this word?

 

สายนิวตรอน and สายกราวด์ are just using the English terms.

I got สายดิน from the warning notice on our electric shower, saying that an earth must be fitted to the unit.

Don't shoot the messenger!

 

Just passing on what Sparky told me.

 

Your man will do whatever he wants anyway, Thai electric not same Farang electric.

Good find, maybe a local sparks will take notice of an official PEA directive.

 

Nah, I thought not 😞

Well of course Thai electric is not the same Farang electric, they're dealing with it at the neutron level!!

 

"The extra attraction from the neutrons keeps the protons' electrical charges from tearing an atomic nucleus apart. So the reason for neutrons is to allow more than one proton to coexist in an atomic nucleus."

True, not same -  Thai electrocute easy, ferang refuse to die.

It was clarification I was after, not shooting.

Old quote so ignore this, quotes can't be deleted it seems

Thanks for that. Just what I wanted to know.

If you wanted home electrics positive is บวก (add)negative is ลบ (Subtract) The terminals on a battery are ขั้วบวก Positive ขั้วลบ Negative. So speaking to people สายบวก สายลบ works.
