you sent me this email:
I have read a thread within a forum on going back to 2002 where you say that you have a copy of Legrand’s International Wiring Guide. Do you still have this document and are you able to forward a copy of it to me? If you do not then do you know where I might obtain a copy?

I am not even sure if your e-mail is still valid but we will see.

Thanks for your help with this one.

I have replied this:


My email is still valid. Unfortunately for the Legrand’s International Wiring Guide, I threw it away not long ago.

The good news is that I can tell you from where I obtained it.

It was from here:


Telefoon +32 2 3344112
Fax +32 2 3388380

But I got this:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.

your email adress does not seem to be correct, so I posting via this forum.

I hope that the forum moderators don't mind.

I have changed 2 letters with XX so that you don't get spam. (If this email adress might well be correct)

Not a problem at all there Eli.
I remember the thread quite well.

Here is a link to the original thread.
Paul, what happened to the files from this thread?.
I note that this thread had been locked out.

Unfortunately, it seems that the diagrams for U.S. and U.K. never got transferred to the ECN server, although re-reading the original discussion about them, it seems as though there were several things to query about them anyway.

The good news, however is that the French and German diagrams are still available:

French system, page 1

French system, page 2

German system, page 1

German system, page 2
