Retro Fit an OLD wylex MCB

Postby Sparkydelux » Thu May 13, 2010 9:56 pm


Anyone know what I could use to retrofit a wylex MCB with?

The manufacturer states that this type of MCB was made redundant 9-10 years ago and cannot get them anymore.

The details are WYLEX 30A HB Type 2 240V. The MCB is white with a black lever / switch.

I cannot believe that these cannot be retrofitted with something else. What happens when an MCB fails, Replace the Board and MCBs? The board has about 30 circuits on!!

I am hoping someone has come across the same issue and could direct me (and save me endless hassels) on finding a simple solution?

Always appreciated,
