BG 32A Single Pole B Type RCBO
Very good value, much cheaper than the usual big name makes. Have used several of these to replace MCBs in consumer units when needed to use RCD protection for circuit additions. Useful when cannot obtain same make as existing MCBs. Need to check carefully that the fixed terminal height from the mounting face is the same as the MCB being replaced, as each make is slightly different. Every one has tested to within spec, not had any failures.

Failing to test
I have used BG for some time but not any more.
Have had five RCBO's and RCD's fail to trip during testing.
They are cheap but its no good if they dont trip and you have to change them..

BG RCBO & RCD's
I bought 12 RCBO's and 3 17th edition BG consumer units complete with RCD's and 20 MCB's because they looked ok and were on special offer.
I liked everything especially the consumer units but unfortunately during live testing I found that a 16 amp RCBO and a 80 amp RCD wouldn't trip which
meant I had to deal with returns and replacements. I hope BG improve their QC, but for now I can only give an average rating.
