New range of 6KA circuit protection devices

Wylex has launched a new range of 6KA circuit protection devices that include updated miniature circuit breakers and matching RCBOs. The design centres on the latest Siemens MCB & RCBO technology.

Since its acquisition by Siemens four years ago, Wylex has been working to develop these new breakers, with the project involving the construction of a new production facility and specialist machinery to cater for high volume demand. First to market were the 10kA MCBs and matching RCBOs for the 3 phase industrial circuit protection systems, followed now by the new range of 6kA domestic devices. The range known as NHX, includes B & C curve MCBs and B & C Curve single module 30mA RCBOs with ratings from 6A through to 50A.

These devices are suitable for use in both new and existing NH consumer units and, from June 2010, will replace the NSB range. Wylex will continue to maintain stocks of the NSB range in parallel to the NHX range for those customers that prefer for reasons of aesthetics, to match devices when retro fitting an extra circuit to an existing installation.

Simon Rowlinson, marketing manager for Wylex said: "The NHX range is the completion of a 3 year long project culminating with the launch of these domestic devices. The dual stocking policy and clever retro fit compatibility of the new range, combined with the high quality of Siemens circuit protection technology caters for all customer needs."
