Cable (20 m.) and adaptor
Amata normally arranges with the town hall that there will be an electrical supply within 15 metres of every stall. Each stall must come with 20 metres of cable and a 2-way or 3-way 15 Amp adaptor.
Maximum 150 watt lighting
Amata expects that the lighting system on all stalls is properly installed and does not exceed a total of 150 watt using low consumption bulbs. Stalls that need more should ask for permission when booking
Lighting - appearance
Electrical lights may be used in medieval markets but must be suitably disguised. Naked light bulbs or modern light shades will not be permitted
Stalls selling food will need more than 150 watt. Such stalls must be fitted with a fuse board that has both an earth leak detector and a thermo- magnetic fuse. The stall should indicate the wattage required when booking
A new fuse
Amata insists that each stallholder bring along and use a main fuse. Till recently, mains fuses could not be bought in a shop but had to be made up by an electrician; such fuses were big and expensive Now a new type of fuse (see photograph), specially designed to trip very quickly in an emergency has come on to the market.
Such a fuse costs about 12 euros. It should be plugged in to the end of the extension cable (or reel) before any light (or other fitting) is plugged in. The manufacturer in Spain is Electro DH, Fortuna 29, 08902 L'Hospitalet de Ll (Barcelona)
If you have any difficulties finding this fuse, ring Amata before the market and we will bring along an extra fuse for you to buy at 12 euros. If you turn up at the market without a fuse and without placing an order, we will supply such a fuse at 20 euros.
