Evening All

Quick question please and hope it's poss.

With an older star breaker split load DB, can I take out all the guts (apart from 100 DP iso) and convert to full rcbo?

Are all the 'plug in bits' a live terminal (e.g behind where RCCB currently is) ?

Would make my life easier if so ;-)

Thanks Sy

The busbar is split, and the rccb bridges the gap. So if you remove that, there's no current to any terminals downstream. (I've made this mistake once lol).
I think you might be able to swap out the busbar for a non split-load.

probablybe cheaper to replace the whole board. then use the starbeaker board on a mate's job and get £80 for it.
