Rated 4 out of 5 by from No bad for the money Used this RCD to replace an AC type in a garage CU. Tested out well within permitted trip times, (as you would expect)and has a posative feel when you push the test button and reset it. Why are people still using AC type RCD's? As soon as you start using LED lighting you need to use A type. Overall it has a feel of quality that premium brands used to have! Like anything the test of time is always a factor! Cannot comment on reliability, as this is the first time I have used this brand.

Would this retro fit into a mk sentry Dis board?...

I need to swap out an AC type for an A - fixed wiring all ok believe may be led / electronic capacitance & controlled DC leakage causing the older one to pop occasionally?
Asked by: smash1e
Hi smash1e, In general most manufacturers' devices come out at around the same dimensions, so physically there is a good chance that they will fit each others' enclosures, but we have not had any other manufacturers' enclosures in for testing so cannot make any guarantees on this. Also, the current regulations specifically state that if an installer mixes manufacturers then they become the responsible party for any warranties.

Will this fit in the Wylex ese2 ip40 2-module unpopulated enclosure (plastic)

Asked by: Achinson
Hi Achison, We have not had any other manufacturers' enclosures in for testing, but device dimensions are more or less the same across the marketplace, you would fall foul of the current wiring regulations though which state that by mixing manufacturers you would become responsible for any warranties.

Is a plastic box available for this unit - without room for other circuits?

Asked by: Achinson
Hi Achison, BG does not make such an enclosure, no, as it would not meet the requirements of the 18th edition (i.e. to be made of a non-combustible or low-combustion material e.g. metal).
