    Crumbling Wylex Fuse Board

    Hi all, hoping to get a couple of grounded (sorry) opinions. Removed a carrier from my old Wylex box. Under the carrier there’s a flash-guard and that’s screwed to a plastic ridge which divides the two contacts. God knows why or how but the plastic ridge sheared off so although you can wedge...

    Wylex NHTPSH100, What fuse type?

    Can't shut off this switch fuse to see what type of fuse is in it. Needed for EIC. It says 100A but not the type, I'm guessing its a BS88 but would like to know if this is all they take or if they vary, in which case it'll have to be a scheduled shut down. Internet doesn't really give any...

    Demonstration of an AFDD by wylex

    Saw this on youtube part of the GSH channel. Probably the best video to demonstrate an AFDD in use I have seen as of yet, It is a Wylex one and no doubt pricey, i could see the time in a few years where the AFDD and rcbo will all be incorporated into 2 modules and each circuit protected by one...

    Wylex MCB Type 2 60 amp

    Good evening people, Next question from a non-sparky. My electrician has asked me to get a 60 amp MCB for a board, he said I would find one on ebay as the board is a few years older. The other MCBs are Wylex Type 2. I can't find a 60 amp Type 2 but I have seen Type 1, can some one tell me what...

    Alterations to an installation with a 1980s (?) Wylex board protected by a single external RCD

    Just carried out a pre-work survey (older property and I wanted to check it over) for a client that wants a few extra sockets and other bits and bobs. The installation has a 5-way Wylex board (I’m guessing 1980s - white/cream plastic) which has had RCD protection added externally at some point -...

    Does Wylex RCCB meet Regulations?

    A customer wants a house refurbished. Attached is a photo of the existing Consumer Unit. three circuits are protected by an RCCB (an old type of RCD) and two aren't. I have recommended a new Consumer Unit with full RCD protection. Is there any way the existing can be made to conform?

    Useful leaflet from wylex about 18th edition

    Had this in an email from Wylex, might be useful to people as it summarises some of the changes in the 18th edition quite well. things might change but from what I have heard industry and a lot of the various bodies pretty much know whats staying and going from the draft but cant officially say.
