Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knockouts. One sharp blow with a punch and hammer and the cable entry points are easily gone (Not too heavy)... If you have problems with this easy part then I'd get an electrician if I was you. Fantastic unit for the price and well worth a 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garage Consumer unit I can't believe they can sell this item so cheap, very well made, would recommend this item, marked it down on features as feel it should be supplied with a 15 Amp MCB as apposed to the 32 Amp but that's easily sorted.

What are ALL the torque settings?

Can't seem to access BG website to download instructions, do you have them too?
Asked by: Carl11111111111111111111
Hi Carl11111111111111111111, Yes, there seems to be a temporary issue with the web hosting company which our BG website runs through sorry. The torques for the range are:- MCB / RCBO / Neutral & Earth bars - 2Nm, Main Switch & RCDs below 80A rating - 2.5Nm, RCDs 80A rated and above - 3.5Nm.

Can we use 2 16a fuses instead of the 32a & 6a

Our new kitchen uses 2 16a ovens instead of the 32a double oven.
Asked by: iansconfused
Hi iansconfused, Yes, you won't be overloading the RCD's maximum power capacity so that would be fine.

Recess

Can I recess this unit in to stud wall so all the cable penetrations are in the cavity?
Asked by: Jimbo1980
Hi Jimbo1980, The enclosure won't suffer any negative effects if you do that, but we don't make any kit to enable it to be done so you'll need to arrange for it to fix securely without impeding the cover being attached, and make good around it.

House to Shed: RCBOs in house consumer unit

Can I connect the BG consumer unit that is fitted with MCBs to the house's C.U. that only has RCBOs using a spare RCBO? are there any issues? If I was top swap the BG MCBs for RCBOs, then is there any issue of "RCBOs effectively being in series"?
Asked by: Billinski
Hi Billinski, Running MCBs from an RCBO, as long as there isn't any overload, is much the same as running them from an RCD (just with a potentially far lower total power capacity). Running RCBOs from another RCBO, however, would likely lead to nuisance tripping at the up-stream device, as their trip levels will be the same (30mA).

Can I use a RCBO to feed this from the db inside

Currently I have an RCBO feeding my garage would I have to change it to a normal mcb to use this board? It’s armoured cable is that safe to have just the rcd inside the board?
Asked by: Ellis4
Hi Ellis4, As long as the RCBO is rated 40A then there shouldn't be any loading issues caused by feeding the garage board through it, but you might find both it and the RCD in the garage board trip for the same fault inside the garage (if such should occur). The likelihood of SWA cable getting damaged in such a way to cause a leak without breaking the cable completely is fairly low, but to be 100% protected it would be prudent to stick with the RCBO option.
