Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job Good quality product. Terminals are not that big compared to the MK ones but did what I needed it to. 24 Feb 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Deffinetly good value! I've puchased a number of these partially because when buying a fully loaded consumer unit you always seem to need more of some types of breakers but always have plenty 32A breakers left over. But they are a neat looking product that operates well! I have had an odd couple that have failed shortly after installation but this has only been an odd one out of around 100 but for the price compared to a competitor brand these are very good value! Top tip! - when fitting the bus bar crouch down and have a look to see that the little tightening mechanism inside the terminal has tightened onto the bus bar and hasn't missed it, you can push it back with a screwdriver before putting the bus bar in and you can usually feel it when tightening if you've missed it... I've almost done it a couple of times 15 Jun 2015

The type of device i.e. B type or C type, is down to the tripping characteristics. Type B devices will trip earlier than Type C devices but are more prone to nuisance tripping in certain applications. Devices should always be selected in accordance with the application. BG do not supply a Type A device.
