    Indicator lights for DB's

    Any tips on fusing the indcator used for essential DB's ... using my favourite suppliers product (MCE) KCI-1L-G

    I have just installed a bunch of these indicator lights for a a few inverter DB's ... but dont want to install 6 amp breakers just for 1 indicator light. The lights are connected directly to the main switch 60 amp ins some cases and 32 amp in others

    the question is does it need fuse/overload protection ?

    Greetings

    I donít believe so as a DB as per regs is deemed to be fault free for 5 meters.

    I am going to install a loose 3 amp fuse ... just in case .. I have used 2.5 mm wire.
