    Industrial TPN board, Hager or Wylex?

    As currently got sod-all to do, I was thinking about the choice of TPN board for a new set up. It only needs 2-3 three phase circuits and around a dozen single phase, total well below 100A, so initially our sparky had suggested something like the Wylex NHTN12MR 12-way board as ample and his...

    Hager Consumer Unit - Fire retardant grommets?

    When working on Wylex consumer units I always opted to use semi-blind fire retardant grommets. (British General Fire Retardant Semi-Blind Grommets 13 Pcs - https://www.screwfix.com/p/british-general-fire-retardant-semi-blind-grommets-13-pcs/9638p) These ensure that any internal fire is starved...

    Hager part KRN190 neutral connecting block

    Who's familiar with Hager KRN190? It's called a "neutral connecting block" by Hager with no further info. This seems a maybe misnomer, but I have never seen one in the flesh.. I'm assuming it would have a lower terminal spaced to fit a standard Hager busbar prong if it were fitted like an MCB...

    Hager Din Rail Mounted Time Switch

    Why are the two poles of the Hager SPD rated differently

    So I was installing a new split load Hager DB (with the integral SPD) and noticed that the SPD cartridges connected across the neutral and line poles of the SPD were rated differently. Is there a reason for these different ratings? Spud

    Oh Hager, you little beauty...

    First time using Hager ADA reduced height RCBOs (as opposed to their tall ADN range). See how beautifully they match up with their MTN circuit breakers (circuit far right next to main switch, for SWA feed to shed). :D Compare to BG, my "go to" budget (and garage DB) brand... can't even get...

    Hager Duplex Cu and KRN190 Neutral connector

    I have a Hager Duplex (stacked 2-row) CU to install. The main switch is on the bottom row. There are cables from the switch feeding the top row. Both cables are fed via a KRN190 "100A neutral connector". The neutral enters the top, and from the bottom is fed to the N busbar. Now I can see this...
