Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crabtree starbreaker Needed extra spaces on old fused board Crabtree starbreaker fitted the bill. Well made sturdy product
Date published: 2020-07-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality & Well Designed An excellently designed Consumer Unit from Crabtree, The steel enclosure is quite thick, giving it a rugged and strong feel. Plenty of knockouts all around the edge, comprising of 20mm and 30mm holes. The back of the product has three large knockouts allowing for any cables entering the enclosure from the back. All devices, such as the Main Switch and any RCBO's must be of the Starbreaker type with the pin on the back, as the busbar is a plug in type, ensuring your safety, and ensuring compliance of Reg. 536.4.203 (18th Edition)

Any reason main switch cannot be fitted at centre of bus bar?

Fitting main switch at the centre would distribute the bus bar loading more evenly. Especially when using mini RCBOs throughout, there is ample space to re-run the Secondly why do you not supply a strain relief clamp for the consumer tails?
Asked by: SuperSoapy
Hello. The Starbreaker consumer units comply with the relevant product standard BS EN 61439-3. They are not tested with the incomer in the middle of the unit, with standard main switch units the neutral bar position and the length of the neutral link facilitates mounting the incomer on the left. As the manufacturer, we define the position of the incomer. As for the second part of the question; If additional cable support is necessary for the tails then use an appropriate cable gland kit. Also, dependent upon when this Starbreaker unit was produced, the isolator itself will have twin screw supply terminals to provide even more cable support. As always please seek the advice of a competent qualified electrician for any installation work. Thank you for your interest in our Crabtree brand.

how many mini RCBOs could i fit (thinking of fitting 12) into this unit due to them having to have there own neutral connection and not being shared with other neutrals

Asked by: wolt
Hello. There is a number of neutral connections that correspond with the consumer unit size, therefore a 18 way unit will have 18 separate Neutral connections on the terminal bar that matches the ways in the unit. You can easily connect 12 min RCBOs into this unit with 6 spare ways. However as with all installation work you must consult a qualified electrician. Thank you for your interest in our Wylex brand.

Which style of RCBO's fit this

I notice that Crabtree make several different Starbreaker style RCBO's (different rating obviously excepted), which style are the correct fittings for this enclosure?
Asked by: AILTD
Take a look at part number 287HV Crabtree Starbreaker 6A 30mA Mini RCBO Come in whole range of amperage but the mini version will give you a lot more space in the board to loop and work with your cables.
