Hi Everyone,

I'm currently working on a specialised desk which has a cable basket holding the standard office desk cables, desk power unit/PDU (6 socket power strip) and an energy monitoring device known as the Sonoff Pow R2.

I would like to know if it is necessary to earth the cable basket using the earthing lug from the power unit.

The part in BS6396 I would like clarified is section 5.1.2. Which says that earthing is not required if equipment has double or reinforced insulation. How do I tell if the Sonoff or Power Unit is double insulated if there is not an identifiable symbol? Should I just assume the cable basket requires earthing?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Jasper Gillespie

Edit:
The Sonoff case is plastic but the cables are held in by push pin terminals which I'm worried will allow the cables to slip out!
