    Anyone know of a supplier for RCBO's?

    As per thread title, I'm looking for asupplier of decent quality RCBO's. I need 20A, 15A and 32A variations all at 30mA and I need a 50A at 100mA.

    I used about 50 RCBO units on a job about a year ago and I ended up importing them from the UK. I only need a total of 10 this time so importing such small quantities with shipping is going to be prohibitively expensive. Just wondered if any of the local wholesalers have actually offered a line of them yet, my usual suppliers still have blank faces when I ask for them.

    Hager is a good brand. New Chint (not Riken Chint) also reliable. I am using LS allot and never had any issues + heard from the inspector that they conform to all regulatory requirements + he also recommended Chint from his recent visit to China to view their production process. Voltex sells LS via Voltex industrial.

    I have seen the UK guys use them alot. Are they basically an earth leakage and circuit breaker combined?
    Seems like a great idea to me. Although makes it a bit too easy for clients to do their own fault finding

    Yep, they are a great idea, beats putting all your eggs in one basket. Nothing worse than sitting in the dark with complete power isolation just because one of your garden lights got damp.
