A friend showed me a classified ad for a 1970s Siemens RCD in Israel (just for laughs) and that piqued my curiosity in Israeli wiring. I quickly found a few Youtube videos showing electrical work, unfortunately most of them very short and teaser-trailer style. The things they do show are interesting enough. Apparently the wiring system is similar enough to central European practices, with 230/400 V mains supplies for homes being fairly common, harmonised colours and DIN rail consumer units. Not sure if this chap is a bit of a cowboy or whether the regs. are more relaxed than in Europe though - some of the videos show things that'd be downright illegal here, like using the green/yellow core as a phase in order to supply two sockets from individual MCBs instead of one (he does run an earth wire, borrows it from a nearby wall light) and some of the wires look fairly undersized.
Have fun with the videos from a part of the world I haven't seen before!
Today I mused about the historic origins of Israel's electric system. Since the territory was a British mandate until 1949, I'd suspect considerable British influence and that made me wonder whether the original flat-pin Israeli plug could be a slimmed-down version of BS546 5A. That doesn't seem to be the case though, the Israeli plug is more closely related to Schuko than to BS546, especially the offset of the earth pin is much smaller on the Israeli plug. I'd love to find out more about the history of that plug! There is some ressemblance to the old French 6 A plug but not really conclusive.
