Do I needThis

I have electricity in my garage direct from the house. I have several sockets in the garage running off one plug on extension leads. Should I fit one of these
Asked by: Alnwicktony
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General 5-Module 3-Way Populated Garage Consumer Unit is intended to be fitted as local protection for a socket ring (maximum of 32A load, or 7,680W) and a lighting ring (max 6A load, or 1,440W). Whether you need this additional protection will depend upon the protection offered to the circuit(s) by your main distribution board in your house.

I have been told these can be fitted outside of a building under the eves.i do not belve this am I wrong

Asked by: Unbeliever
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General 5-Module 3-Way Populated Garage Consumer Unit is rated IP65 weatherproof so physically it would survive being installed under the eaves outside, but it has no facility to be locked so anyone whom could reach it would be able to open it and turn off the devices inside whenever they wanted to.

Can I run my Gainsborough 10.5se shower with this unit ?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General 5-Module 3-Way Populated Garage Consumer Unit comes with a 40A 30mA RCD (maximum load 9.2kW), a 32A MCB (max 7.68kW) and 6A MCB (max 1.44kW). As long as your Gainsborough shower is rated below the level of one of the MCBs then it would be suitable, otherwise you would need to consider the British General 5-Module 1-Way Populated Shower Consumer Unit (1336J) which comes with a 63A 30mA RCD (maximum load 14.72kW) and 50A MCB (max 12kW).

I would like to use this with 1 lighting circuit with 4 lights on the 6A MCB, 4 double sockets on a ring main on the 32A MCB and then add a third MCB for a 2000 watt electric heater on its own 2.5 mm cable circuit, could I use a 20A MCB for this?

Could I then change the 32A ring main MCB for a 20A so I don't overload the 40A RCD or will this still be OK with a 6A, 32A & 20A MCB
Asked by: SMN1974
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. For a 2kW heater you would only strictly need a 10A breaker (giving a max capacity of 2.4kW). Switching the 32A breaker down to a 20A version would be fine as long as you do not expect to need to run more than 4.8kW at any one time on the 4 double sockets which it protects the cabling for. But realistically you don't have to reduce the 32A breaker to a 20A as long as your total combined load across all three breakers at any one time does not exceed the 40A rating of the RCD (although ensuring that the maximums for the breakers are below this in total is an extra level of precaution against such an overload).

Does this unit reset with power loss?

Hi. This will be wired from my main CU. If the CU trips will this unit need resetting again or is the power latched on in the event of power loss?
Asked by: Dustyshouse
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As with most hard-wired protective devices the RCD and MCBs in this British General 5-Module 3-Way Populated Garage Consumer Unit will remain in the same state they started in throughout a power cut and restoration of power, only tripping if the detect a fault which they are designed to protect against.
