Not only does the FDB11 series meet new build installation requirements but the range continues to meet the needs of upgrade projects and refurbishments where earlier generations of this series were installed many years ago and need to be extended or replaced.

Because of their robust electronics and mechanical assembly, the FDB27 series is also suited to other outdoor installations where reliable RCD protected power is needed in arduous environments.
