How do you fit a Hager RCBO?
Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: And they don't have an earth functional earth connection needed literally all they've got as a neutral tail. They click in and you just connect your neutral tail there into the neutral bar.
How do you install a RCBO?
Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: And it's got the RCD functionality built into the top and that's the part which monitors the current on the line and the neutral. And then we'll trip the device if there's any imbalance detected.
Can I use an RCBO instead of an RCD?
However, you can meet these specifications and save space on the circuit breaker panel: on some circuits, you can replace two devices (RCD and circuit breaker) with a single device (RCBO). This will protect these circuits against current leaks and overloads at the same time.
Can an RCBO be used as a main switch?
Yes you can use RCBO as a replacement to MCB and RCB. In general, RCBO is basically circuit breaker in addition to residual current device.
Where does the white cable go on RCBO?
The black is the load and goes L out, the white goes on N out. The bare wire stays where it was.
Does RCBO need earth?
RCBOs do not have to have a separate earth connection to meet the standard EN61009.
Are RCBOs double pole?
Where the socket outlets are supplied direct from permanent or hard wired (non-plug-in) switchboards, they may be single pole, however their circuit protecting RCD/ RCBO must be double pole.
What Colour is a functional earth?
The functional earth conductor for telecommunication circuits is identified by the colour cream. Some cables comply with HD 324:1977 and have blue insulation on the neutral conductor.
What is the difference between a Type B and Type C RCBO?
Type B devices are designed to trip at fault currents of 3-5 times rated current (In). For example a 10A device will trip at 30-50A. Type C devices are designed to trip at 5-10 times In (50-100A for a 10A device). Type D devices are designed to trip at 10-20 times In (100-200A for a 10A device).
Which RCBO for domestic use?
Type B devices are generally suitable for domestic applications. They may also be used in light commercial applications where switching surges are low or non-existent. Type C devices are the normal choice for commercial and industrial applications where some degree of electrical inrush is expected.
What type of RCBO should I use?
Type A – Can be used for general purpose and for equipment incorporating electronic components. The RCD can detect and react as Type AC as well as accommodate pulsating DC components. Type F – Used for appliances containing synchronous motors and some class 1 power tools.
Can you mix MCB and RCBO?
Yes, but only if there is not already an 30mA RCD covering the section of busbar you are mixing them on, ie dual RCD or split load board. On a main switch only board mix and match as you wish.
Can I fit RCBO in a RCD consumer unit?
The RCBOs are fitted in the section not protected by any RCD.
When should an RCBO be used?
If there are circuits in your clients’ homes that must stay functional at all times, such as the power to your freezer or fire alarm, a RCBO is the most practical circuit breaker to install. A RCD and MCB can still lead to a power outage, as they can only detect one type of problem.
