Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wylex plug in MCB Up grading a domestic panel that customer didn't want a new consumer unit at this moment. After the fuse wire blowing for ring main and them sitting all day with no power and they didn't know how to replace the wire I recommended these MCB's as a solution. Only minutes to fit each one and now they can reset them in seconds should one ever trip, no more sitting with no lecky till I can attend. Wylex reliability and good price what more can I say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Replacmeent I installed a set of these to my old fusebox some time ago. An easy and cost effective way to upgrade. Having just bought a new oven with a lower rateing it was a simple job to replace the 32 A MCB with a 16 A. Job done.

power to my shed.
Would this mcb cut the power quicker than having to burn fuse wire out or do I need to add a separate rcb also.
consumer unit with rcb's in the shed already.

Hi, my old WYLEX unit currently has re-wirable fuses, are the SP Type B Curve MCB's suitable replacements for these?

3 x 30A Fuse -> 32A MCB
1 x 15A Fuse -> 16A MCB
2 x 5A Fuse -> 6A MCB

Answer: 
Yes the B16 will fit as a replacement for a fuse. You would need to change the coloured base with fuse to one that comes with the MCB and then it will fit. Also what might be a problem is when the B16 is fitted you will not get the fuse cover to fit, what you need to do is on the inside of the fuse cover is a knockout this needs to be removed then the fuse cover will fit leaving a skirting around the devices.
