    30 mA residual current protection.
    Currently available in 16A, 20A & 32A overcurrent protection and a fault current rating of 4.5kA
    List price of R360.00

    If your wholesaler doesn't have it in stock soon, let Swan Electric know or steer the wholesaler their way.

    Thanks for the heads up, Dave.
    Lekker for geyser circuits.

    Now to see who stocks them.

    Cheers and peace out ... Derek

    Unit is also perfect for construction site DB's vs the prices that we are currently paying - Will have to try and see how they hold up on a construction site

    I saw on the UK forums a brand called Fuse Box - there boards and RCBO's seem to get good reviews from those that installed them. They are about 10 quid most places - or R200. Then you obviously have to get them here. They look pretty good.

    I pay R460 for a DB complete with a main switch...60 amp e/l unit... 20 amp geyser combo...40 amp stove...2 x plugs and 2 x lights circuit breakers ... R 360 is a bit steep for 1 x unit... cant say i have ever seen a swan product in a DB.
    Comments are based on opinion...not always facts....that's why people use an alias.
