We have a received a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for the following:
“Please would you confirm that in the Type Approval for the GATSOMETER BV TYPE 24 + AUS, the term “mains powered” means that the speed camera is powered from a public electricity supply whose specification meets the criteria in Regulation 27 of “The Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002 (SI 2665)”?
Note - Regulation 27 provides the following specification for the public (low voltage) supply - “The frequency of the mains supply is permitted a variation not exceeding 1 per cent above or below the declared frequency (50Hz) and in the case of a low voltage supply (230V), a voltage variation not exceeding 10 per cent above or 6 per cent below the declared voltage at the declared frequency (50Hz).”
Please would you also confirm whether running a GATSOMETER BV TYPE 24 + AUS speed camera from a generator (i.e. neither from the public mains supply nor from batteries as envisaged in the Type Approval) would invalidate the Type Approval?”
