FDB 2 Multiway modular RCD/RCBO panel shows the way to building renovation

When it comes to building renovation our FDB 2 multiway modular RCD/RCBO panel is ideal for upgrade and maintenance projects in the commercial/industrial sphere.

This modular range of general purpose earth leakage protection units comes complete with overload and short circuit protection. (It is also approved by Network Rail for use in DC Electrified areas). Featuring sold state electronic circuitry for stability and immunity from spurious tripping, the range features different permutations of rating in each voltage range. Standard units are supplied in steel, surface mounting enclosures with RCD test button and MCB toggle accessible at front of unit.

The FDB electrical protection family of RCD and RCBO devices runs from the Multiway FDB 2 modular panel through the FDB 11 at 230V for general purpose building renovation upgrade and maintenance projects, and the FDB 13, FDB 15 and FDB 19 3 phase 400V units for new build installations. Also in the family is the FDB 27 MOD spec unit for aircraft or army hangers new build and replacement installations.

These proven units are a convenient option for new or replacement installations offering long life and reliability. They are available from our FDB Online Store.

Stainless steel compression latchesCompression locks and latches are gaining in popularity for their enhanced IP security and their vibration resistance, which makes them suitable for use on specialist vehicles and railway rolling stock, as well as achieving greater gasket pull down performance. Compression locks and latches come in a variety of formats including industry standard quarter turn and recessed lever designs – given their focus on high degrees of sealing and the likely environmental application  many compression latch locks are required in stainless steel – such as for use on hygiene/wash down equipment where the whole design concept is centred around high levels of functionality.
