Hager 18-Way Consumer Unit

Hager claims to have launched the largest single row consumer unit in the UK to meet an increasing need for more outgoing circuits. The 24 module, split load board has a 100A switch, two RCCBs plus configurable outgoing ways for RCBOs.

Says Steve Dyson, product manager for Hager: “The number of circuits in the home is increasing. Many modern houses, for instance, have three separate bathrooms, underfloor heating and separate lighting for the kitchen and bathroom.

“The introduction of the 17th edition also means that more modules are needed for twin RCCB protection and boards need extra height to accommodate RCBOs in case they are needed for individual RCD protection. One answer is to install two row boards, but this is not always practical due to space.”

The new consumer unit has up to 18 configurable outgoing ways allowing different circuit combinations. It also has plenty of height for fitting RCBOs if needed.

Continues Dyson: “The advent of the 17th edition means that the contractor has to take even more care in designing their final circuit layouts to avoid nuisance tripping. Configurable boards give them the flexibility to do so.”
