Testing
30 Apr 2015
By oldsparky

" As an MCB is part of the circuit protected by the RCD, when you test the RCD by carrying out the test at the end of the circuit at 1/2i, i0 deg' , i180 deg', 5i 0 deg', 5i 180 deg', Ramp, Loop and PFC, you also test the MCB at each of these tests.
I have used BG mcb's for several years and have found them completely reliable I have never had a new one fail during testing. I have had a couple of RCD's fail but I always carry spares and Screwfix have always exchanged the faulty RCDs without question.
3 stars for features because there are no "features".
These MCB's are the equivalent of other makes but better value.

cheap, not the most reliable

" I like the BG consumer units, they're good value, nicely built and come with built in spirit level. I have however had a couple of the MCBs fail on me during installation or shortly after so make sure you have spares "

Poor quality control
24 Oct 2012
By Sparky2340

" Have purchased BG items for some time but got 2 of these and both failed testing at x5 In.
Have also had two RCD's fail as well.
I think its back to MK as its a real pain to have to change them when its all in and you start testing.
"
