A 10% reduction in electrical fires has been reported in countries where arc fault devices are mandated such as USA.
More than 7,500 fires are recorded yearly in England with the source of ignition as electrical distribution, cables and plugs.
Arc fault detection devices (AFDDs) detect electric arc faults that MCBs, RCDs and RCBOs cannot detect. Therefore a safety gap exists.
Wylex AFDDs include MCB and RCD functions to cater for the full requirements of the wiring regulations including arc faults, thereby closing the safety gap.
The 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations are just around the corner. Get ready with Wylex. Watch this space for more information on new regulations, new products and new solutions.
When looks matter and ease of installation is essential, NM "L Series" consumer units will make your life easy. With cable entries on all sides and a raised removable interior, there's lots of working space.
Because one size does not fit all, Wylex offers the widest range of off the shelf consumer units. Not in the catalogue? We can design and build to order.
Being first to market is a habit for Wylex. First with 17th Edition consumer units. First with Amendment 3 consumer units. It’s just one of the many reasons that more specifiers and installers choose Wylex first.
Total isolation of faulty circuits without interrupting power on any other circuits, a safer way to wait for the emergency electrician.
Using switched neutral RCBOs fully complies with Chapter 31 requirements for - division of the installation, avoiding danger, minimising inconvenience, preventing unwanted tripping and permits safe testing and maintenance.
Switching off a Wylex miniature RCBO isolates the live and neutral, which more than complies with Health & Safety standards for safe working if equipment needs changing or additions are being made.
Ratings from 6A to 40A to cater for heavy loads e.g. showers and cookers as well as lighting and general power circuits. There's even a 25A rating.
