FuseBox AFDD with Type A 30mA RCBO – 16A
FuseBox’s AFDD is a single module device which is suitable for new and existing FuseBox installations.
This product is a combination of AFDD and Type A 30mA RCBO within a single module device.
Designed to protect against ARC FAULTS (Series and Parallel), overload, short circuit and earth leakage. The AFDD061630B is double pole RCBO AFDD meaning the Line and Neutral conductors do not have to be disconnected for IR (insulation resistance) testing if the lever is in the OFF position making it the ideal solution any property requiring AFDD protection.
Arc fault protection devices (AFDD) are designed to help prevent fires by identifying fire propagating electrical arcs.
These can be caused by a number of things such as rodent damage, faulty cable insulation, crushed wires or even loose terminals. These devices combine conventional analogue measurements with microprocessors to quickly analyse data.
The quick ‘decision making’ of the unit allows it to detect potential faults before they can cause fire and become a risk to property and life. Since the release of BS7671 18th edition, new regulation 421.1.7 recommends the installation of these devices in a number of AC final circuits.
