WYLEX 5-Way Fully Insulated Main Switch Consumer Unit
Usual Wylex quality
Good unit, not a great lot of space especially when fitting RCBO's, I like to leave plenty of 'slack' on the cables when terminating, but still does the job fine, good quality, plenty of knockouts !

Major problem with switch .
I am not an electrician so please excuse anything that may not sound right . Wanted to replace a very old ceramic unit that was last bit of old wiring . So bought this to act as a 100 watt main switch then split into 50 to new consumer unit I had already fitted plus 32 out to garage and shed combined and 16 to all outside lights through a double pole switch . The 50,32 and 16 were the mcbs I put in this unit . Not expecting a problem did all the wiring and did the 100 into main switch last . One of the clamps (positive) that is operated by screw at front would not budge . Had to take main switch out and by brute force get it to clamp cable . Could not use another 100 switch as the Wylex has positive and negative other way round to other makes . When I went to recheck all the wires the clamp again did exactly the same thing again and stuck open . Could be one off but on a new switch ? I know it is a cheap unit but did not expect such poor quality control .

Cheap consumer unit
Great little 5 way board for domestic use,had a bit of trouble with the busbar,but apart from that it did the job.
Would probably use this product again.
