Rated 2 out of 5 by from not so good Have bought 2 of these on two different occasions and at least one of them failed to work, not reliable and I am wary when I need to buy them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor design As mentioned before, to change the fuse the supply needs to be isolated and the unit dismantled to get to the fuse holder. Don't understand how this passed standards!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's good but! The red indicator light is very poor, just installed in garage and with the lights out there is only a faint glimmer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy fix for existing system I have used this to protect an outside cable run which had no protection and was run on the surface in a hedge with ordinary cable (installed by a previous owner) and is now underground and armoured. Two issues (both minor). The cut outs are not that well defined, I finished up drilling them out as I was not confident of breaking them out (20mm cutter). The waterproof seal is fiddly, it keeps falling out of position and combined with a plastic case which can pull out of shape under the stress of an armoured cable it can be a nuisance. Make sure the armoured cable is well aligned and secure It seems to work well when installed.

rcd not working

had this unit fitted for a shed its all wired correctly but the plug in tester saying live earth reverse. also when i do the trip test i can still see red from the view window in the unit have you any ideas
Asked by: dinker
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As this BG 13A Switched Weatherproof RCD FCU has two Earth terminals which are separate from the Live and Neutral Feed and Load terminals it seems unlikely that any crossover would have occurred at it. As for the indicator, when you press TEST you should get a solid click and the indicator should disappear from the window, along with the power cutting off, but sometimes it is possible to view the indicator window from such an angle that the mechanical indicator arm is still visible in the tripped state, so double check that the unit has tripped using your tester. If the unit proves not to be tripping then either your incoming Feed wires and outgoing Load wires have been accidentally reversed (so power is running through the unit backwards) or else the unit is faulty and so should be exchanged.

Cable glands

Does it come with any cable glands? Does it accept standard M20 glands?
Asked by: JJTT
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The BG Storm Weatherproof range of products do not come with glands or gaskets as the cabling/conduit type being used will dictate the appropriate type. The pre-formed knockouts (push-outs) are 20mm diameter as standard or can be drilled out to 25mm if necessary.
