FDB Electrical News

As a focused supplier of enclosure hardware we draw support from our range of international suppliers, to ensure that post Brexit our specialist panel builder customers continue to receive a high level of ex-stock and personal service from our Panel Fittings team – and that our  customers involved in electrical installations can draw on us for their electrical protection needs. FDB Electrical Protection for industrial applications including rail and military


Of course we can see that our Online store has greatly helped to maintain customer service – but we also like talking to you so please do stay in touch personally so that we can best support you as we move into the next few months and work our way, as a country, towards a safe recovery.

When business generally is slow this is traditionally a time when companies restructure and upgrade to match the new situation by replacing old equipment – it is a time when custom protective panels are often called for. Here at FDB we have experience in assembly of all our earth monitoring and protection devices to meet customer requirements.

VEF 21, VEF41 and VEF 51 are Variable Earth Leakage Protection Relays available for urgent delivery from our Online store with choice of operating voltages 24V or 240V AC/DC plus time delay and EF adjustment – they include integral test and reset buttons. Also available are matching core balance transformers.

Other Earth Leakage Relays are available at out FDB Electrical site – for details see here – also please contact us for order information.

Our FDB 2,11,13 and 21 series from the Online store make up a package of power protection units for use in general industrial purposes such as warehousing, manufacturing, offices, utilities, public services, residential blocks and similar.

These units comprise fully equipped wall mounting steel enclosures housing MCBs, RCDs and RCBOs to varying specifications – see here – ready to install for your specific project.
