Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid unit but not for all Small CUs are often used to house DIN-mounted controls e.g. heating contactors, etc. This one is unfit for that, as Wylex not only cropped DIN rail just to fit main switch (hence impossible to attach anything without attaching to busbar, already binned), they also drilled holes for their rail in unconventional position, which makes replacement of DIN rail a real pain. If you need this unit for a garage and want to fit RCBOs - perfect, but it not designed for anything else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not designed to take Wylex RCB Disclaimer - I did read the other review which stated that Wylex RCBOs don't fit very well. I needed a secondary consumer unit with a couple of double pole RCBOs and room to add another later. Being an ingenious sort of chap who's up for a challenge, I figured there had to be a sensible workaround, so I bought this unit anyway. The busbar is an odd design which connects using the screw terminals at the front of the 100A isolator, not the rear clamping terminal as is customary on most other consumer units. No worries, I thought - a BG busbar will do the trick on the rear terminals. Er, no. You see the DIN rail isn't really a DIN rail. It's only half a DIN rail. The isolator clips onto the top of the half DIN rail and the bottom is held by (have you guessed it?) the busbar which has a retaining clip to anchor its left hand side in the enclosure. If you swap the busbar out, the isolator and RCBOs aren't secure. If you were REALLY creative and had a length of DIN rail to hand, you could remove the half DIN rail, cut a full DIN rail to size, drill and fit it, then fit Wylex RCBOs using a standard (e.g. BG) busbar. So there is a workaround, though I'm not sure Wylex would approve......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, simple and robust I was looking for a solid consumer unit that could stand a few knocks and bangs. This unit is robust and simple. It's hard to find a unit these days that does not have a built in RCD, which was what I was after but this fits the bill. Steel outer shell, with steel cover over the trip it will stand up to the bumps and scrapes it will get where its going to be located

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Bought this with 5x RCBO’s. The bus bar that came with the unit did not fit the Wylex RCBO’s. And they didn’t click on the finrsil very well. They were loose. Not great that their own RCBO’s don’t fit their boards very well

RCBO

It specifies Wylex RCBOs, but I assume it will also accept another brand Type B RCBO such as the General Electric?

Could I fit a 63amp 30ma rcd (bg) in place of the double pole isolator ?

Asked by: Monstt
Hi, The fitting of alternative manufacturers devices into a different manufacturers consumer unit is not recommended as they are not designed or tested for this type of installation and doing so will automatically invalidate the manufacturers warranty on both the consumer unit and device installed. You could change the Wylex 100A Isolator switch for a Wylex 63A RCD without invalidating the warranties. The Wylex 63A RCD is available from Screwfix. The part number is 82076. If in any doubt we recommend that you contact a qualified electrician.

rcd's dont fit ?

part number 82076 or do you not need an rcd with this unit?
Asked by: Hitman11
82076 is a Wylex 5W consumer unit supplied with a main switch only. If you require a consumer unit with an RCD the nearest size would be our 8 way - sku: 4865J.
