What is RCBO Schneider?
Residual current circuit breaker with integrated overcurrent protection.
Are Schneider RCBOs double pole?
The Schneider Acti 9 range is the safest, simplest and most energy efficient system for power distribution. The Schneider A9D11216 is a double pole, 16A, Type C, 30mA, 240v RCBO. It is a combined MCB/RCD, which protects against overload, short circuit and earth leakage.
What is the difference between an RCBO and RCD?
RCBO: What is the Difference? RCDs can protect against electric shocks, residual currents, and earth faults. On the other hand, RCBOs can do what RCDs can do and protect a circuit from short circuits and overload. RCBOs are essentially a combination of MCB and RCCB.
Can you get a 3 phase RCBO?
The RCBO takes up 4 pole ways in a 3-phase distribution board, i.e. L1 / L2 / L3 and the 4th pole of the device fits over, and is insulated from, the L phase position of the neighbour circuit.
What is RCBO electrical?
Residual current circuit breaker with Overcurrent Protection
Residual current circuit breaker with Overcurrent Protection- RCBO.
Can I use an RCBO instead of an RCD?
However, you can meet these specifications and save space on the circuit breaker panel: on some circuits, you can replace two devices (RCD and circuit breaker) with a single device (RCBO). This will protect these circuits against current leaks and overloads at the same time.
Can an RCD work without a neutral?
A RCD will still function without a neutral connection, however the test button may not operate. Some RCDs have the trip test circuit connected between phases while others are between phase and neutral. Your supplier will be able to supply the correct resistor for the RCD to be installed.
Do commando sockets need RCD protection?
The Wiring Regulations states in Regulation 411.3. socket outlets with a rated current not exceeding 20A that are for use by ordinary persons and are intended for general use, must be RCD protected.
