Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rcd spur BG are a good brand at a fair price. 1st time I've used a rcd spur from BG. But use BG all the time for sockets,spurs, and switches. Never any problems with brand. Had to give lower rating for reliability as not proven over time yet. But don't anticipate any real issues as other items in range are fine

Is this a Latching or non latching RCD ? Is it suitable for protecting a garden circuit

Asked by: JC2020
Hi JC2020, Passive is another term for Latching (Active would equate to Non-Latching). As for suitability to protect a garden circuit, it would depend on what you would be looking to connect to it - any rotary/power tools would tend to be advised to use with a non-latching RCD to prevent any accidents around when they power back up after a power cut (with a latching model this would be immediate, not requiring a reset like non-latching models would).

Can this be used to protect a shed and garden socket ? 2.5mm2 armoured cable has been used for supply . Using garden tools and DIY etc

There is no RCD protection in the house . The Fused Spur is from the downstairs ring main
Asked by: JC2020
Hi JC2020, As long as you don't presume that the RCD will protect against every possible fault/accident then yes, you could use this FCU to feed your shed with 13A (3120W / 3.12kW) of power for use by any device(s) in there. The 13A fuse in it will protect against massive overloads and the RCD against power leaking out of the circuit instead of returning through the Neutral side (potentially because it is exiting through a person), but other faults or accidents may not cause either of these protective measures to cut the power being supplied.

Whirlpool bath

Can i spur of a socket to this and then to a whirlpool bath. The rcd will be in the boiler cupboard
Asked by: Dmbrjb
Hi Dmbrjb, As long as you don't try to run more than 13A (3120W / 3.12kW) through it then what you propose should not have any negative impact.

Can I change the fuse without switching off at the main fuse box.

Asked by: fretwej
Hi fretwej, We would advise that you trip the unit out (press the TEST button) first to disconnect the contacts, then it will be perfectly safe to change the fuse and then RESET the unit back into working condition.

can this be installed in a bathroom in a zone 2 area?

Asked by: wadworks
Hi wadworks, Zone 2 in a bathroom requires an IP rating of 44, this FCU has an IP rating of only 20 (as is standard with such products) so would not be suitable.
