Can anyway identify the board and MCBs from the pictures? This installation is in a house in Tanzania - the actual installation has a much bigger 3 phase version in another house which I am helping to fix. These old boards used to be imported from China until about 2010. They are no longer available as new installations use Havells or Tronic kit which are much better. My problem is that I can't find any even half-decent replacement MCBs for these old boards. The boards are found in both single and three phase versions but the MCBs are the same. The writing on the MCB in the picture says it is BS3871 type M3 10kA which is contradictory as M3 means 3kA not 10kA so I don't trust anything thats written on it. If someone can relate what I am looking at to old MEM kit I might be able to find some old better MCBs from somewhere. If these boards have never been used in UK then maybe they are copies of ones that used to be supplied by MEM for export elsewhere.
