Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failed within a week Worked correctly when first fitted to protect an outside socket. Failed after 1 week of use. It had tripped out and when reset made an electrical fizzing noise and didn't pass enough voltage. I did some testing and discovered it had lost continuity on the neutral side. I note other reviewers of this and the non-metal clad version have had the same failures. So I will be going with a different brand to replace this one. The front cover plate screw was also difficult to use because the backbox lug hadn't been correctly threaded for it which was an annoyance.

What Type is this

I’ve bought this RCD but it does not state what type it is - is it A, AC or B please?
Asked by: BGHEAT
Hi BGHEAT, All of our RCD protected FCU models use RCD workings of type A.

Will this RCD fused spur cut power within 40 milliseconds of a fault?

Use for plug with a hot tub

Could this be used to wire in a plug in hot tub ?
Asked by: Phil2507
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The maximum constant power flow capacity of the RCD protected FCU is 13A or 3120W (3.12kW), so as long as your hot tub uses less than this amount of power then it should be a suitable load.

Would this be suitable to run a tumble dryer through?

Asked by: Badger04
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General 13A Fused Spur Metal-Clad is rated for a constant power flow of up to 3120W (3.12kW) so as long as your tumble dryer is below this level or power consumption it should cause no problems to the spur.

I want to add this item to an extension of the lighting circuit. Will it be effective with a 3 amp fuse inserted?

Asked by: Elyguy
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General 13A Fused Spur Metal-Clad will function normally with any BS1362 standard fuse installed, regardless of current rating.
