Rated 4 out of 5 by from British General 22-Module Bought this consumer unit for a friends house rewire . Overall it was ok although a liitle expensive when compared to others . Relatively easy to fit ( the knock outs are HARD to remove! ) we populated with breakers and An SPD to boot. Had to buy the Overpriced Gland kit to secure the Tails but so far am quite pleased with the unit. Its solid ( for that read heavy) Relatively well made , had a number of cable entry points and it actually looks good too. . Will probably use more of these units as buying a populated unit makes foe easy installation . Oh the circuit breakers are relatively inexpensive too !

What are the physical dimensions

I need to replace an existing CU however space is limited, the gap I have is only 400mm wide.

Mains Switch

Can the mains switch be moved to to the left side.
Asked by: toad007
Hi toad007, All of the devices are mobile on the DIN rail, but we would advise strongly against moving the main switch to the left as the internal layout would put it below the permanently attached Earth bar and the RCDs are polarity sensitive with the Live busbar having to go out to their left so the supplied Y-shaped Live cable would likely not reach both RCDs from the displaced main switch.

does this go in a normal house without solar or car charging but is ok if we put a car charger in later in years

Asked by: dbrain
Hi dbrain, Yes this is a standard domestic board, and yes you can add a car charger at a later date if you wish, the regulations would simply require protection by a type A device somewhere in the feed to the charger (not necessarily needing to be in this board), rather than the type AC models fitted as standard here.

Why no A type RCD?

The RCDs in this consumer unit are for equipment which is resistive, capacitive or inductive and without any electronic components. That means not suitable for most circuits nowadays??
Asked by: 7Malc7
Hi 7Malc7, The standard AC type RCDs are still fine for most situations, it is only high DC feedback items such as EV Chargers or Solar PV Systems which routinely require A types instead.
