Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement part The old part failed its test on its first 5 year test (Electrical Installation Condition Report) so this does call reliability into question. Had to replace with an exact replacement part so it would fit properly into the consumer unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BG 8Amp RCD Arrived two days later than expected, hence 4 stars. Otherwise does what it says on the tin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Budget RCD Bought this to replace an existing RCD that had already failed after 2 years. Budget range for a reason in my opinion. Tested and passed on installation but I don't hold out much confidence it will last.

Is this item interchangeable with General Electric 80 amp 30 ma double pole RCD 304/28031-602

Asked by: Tedlill
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Specification-wise this British General 80A 30mA DP Type AC RCD does seem to match the indicated GE model, and dimensionally they will likely be very close (although we don't have technical details on the GE model from which to confirm this), but terminal height differences are a common issue when switching between one manufacturer and another.

Can I use this RCD as a direct replacement for a GET 80R30 RCCB?

Asked by: torbob
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. We do not have any testing or certification results for other manufacturers' devices so we cannot make any direct comparisons. We can say that the spec appears to be the same, and that dimensionally there is likely to be very little overall difference (although the terminal heights may be different).

Is this RCD compatible with a Steeple consumer unit?

Asked by: vroomuk
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. We have not done any testing with our (BG Electrical) devices in anyone else's consumer units so we cannot guarantee compatibility. We would advise contacting Steeple to see if they have done any testing with our devices and whether using them would invalidate any warranties.
