A comprehensive range of Consumer Units and Circuit Protection by Click. The range includes modern Consumer Units and various protective devices, which are designed to offer convenience, flexibility, and safety.
Elucian by Click has launched a comprehensive Consumer Unit and Circuit Protection range. The range offers a range of features and benefits to enhance convenience, flexibility, and safety.
The Elucian range is the result of extensive research and consultation with contractors and installers. This was to ensure that the products meet their requirements and are compliant with all the latest regulations.
The range includes consumer units that cover a broad range of installations and come with various features. These include shrouded live bus bars, variable knockout sizes, and rear knockouts, making installation quick and simple for electricians.
The range also includes various protective devices such as MCBs, RCDs, Contactors, which are suitable for residential and light commercial environments. The protective devices provide protection against earth faults to ensure people's safety against electric shocks and fires.
A fuse box and a consumer unit are both electrical distribution boards that contain fuses or circuit breakers. They are manufactured to protect electrical circuits in a building. However, there are some key differences between the two.
A fuse box is an older style of electrical distribution board that contains a series of fuses. These fuses are designed to protect electrical circuits from overloading or short-circuiting.
If a fault occurs in one of the circuits, the corresponding fuse will blow. The power to that circuit will be cut off. The blown fuse must then be replaced with a new one.
A consumer unit is a modern type of electrical distribution board that contains circuit breakers instead of fuses. Circuit breakers are designed to perform the same function as fuses, i.e., to protect electrical circuits from overloading or short-circuiting.
When a fault occurs in one of the circuits, the corresponding circuit breaker will trip, cutting off power to that circuit. Once the fault has been fixed, the circuit breaker can be reset, restoring power to the circuit.
One of the main advantages of a consumer unit is that circuit breakers are more convenient and safer to use. Unlike fuses, circuit breakers can be reset after they have tripped, without needing to be replaced. This makes them more convenient for homeowners and electricians.
Circuit breakers are more reliable than fuses and can detect and respond to a wider range of faults,. This is because they provide greater protection to the electrical circuits in the building.
Both fuse boxes and consumer units perform the same function of protecting electrical circuits in a building. However, a consumer unit is a more modern and convenient option that offers greater safety and protection.
Click is a relatively new brand that has quickly gained popularity in the market. This is due to its high-quality products and innovative design. Click is an award-winning company that specializes in manufacturing electrical products for the residential and commercial markets.
Electrical consumer units are an essential component of any electrical system in a building or home. They play a crucial role in protecting the electrical circuits and appliances from electrical faults, surges, and overloads. These are also commonly known as fuseboxes or distribution boards.
Consumer units generally contain several "fuses" or circuit breakers that control the distribution of electricity to various parts of the building. These breakers act as safety devices which interrupt the electrical current flow. They do this in the event of an overload or fault in the circuit. This helps prevent electrical fires and other hazards, ensuring the safety of the occupants and the building.
Modern consumer units often feature residual current devices (RCDs). RCDs are designed to detect and respond to electrical faults that can cause electric shock. They monitor the flow of electricity through a circuit and quickly shuts off the power if it detects a sudden change. These changes could be when someone touches a live wire.
Consumer units are installed by qualified electricians. This is to ensure that they meet the necessary safety regulations and are correctly wired to the main electrical supply. Homeowners and building managers should regularly inspect their consumer units to ensure that they are in good condition and functioning correctly.
The Elucian consumer unit is available with a variety of components. These include Elucian RCDs, Elucian MCBs, Elucian AFDDs, Elucian RCBO, and Elucian SPDs.
The Elucian RCBO is a type of circuit breaker that combines the functions of an MCB and an RCD. It provides protection against overload, short circuit, and electrical leakage. The Elucian MCB is a type of circuit breaker that protects electrical circuits from overloading and short circuits.
The Elucian SPD is a surge protection device that protects electrical equipment from voltage spikes and surges. It is an essential component of any electrical system as it can help to prevent damage to sensitive electrical equipment. The Elucian SPD is available in a range of types and sizes suitable for both residential and commercial applications.
An RCD serves as a safety mechanism that identifies any faults in an electrical supply and quickly shuts off the circuit. Its primary function is to halt the flow of electricity, thereby preventing electric shocks and ensuring safety. If there is a sudden surge in electricity, the RCD will trip and disconnect the current.
The RCD safeguards against potential harm or fatalities resulting from electric shocks. It achieves this by detecting any imbalance between the total incoming and outgoing current across multiple circuits.
Elucian MCBs, or Miniature Circuit Breakers, are electrical devices that protect electrical circuits from overloads and short circuits.
MCBs have a switch that automatically trips and disconnects the circuit when it detects an overcurrent or short circuit. This immediate disconnection prevents further damage to the electrical equipment and wiring. Elucian MCBs are small in size and easy to install in distribution or switchboards.
Click Elucian AFDD, or Arc Fault Detection Devices, are electrical devices that protect against arc faults in electrical systems. Arc faults occur when electrical current flows through an unintended path and can cause fires.
AFDDs combine the functions of a miniature circuit breaker (MCB) and an arc fault detector. They are designed to automatically detect and disconnect the circuit when they detect an arc fault. Elucian AFDDs are compact and can be installed in a distribution board or switchboard.
Elucian AFDDs are designed to provide reliable and safe protection for electrical systems. They are easy to install and require minimal maintenance. They are available in different current ratings and trip sensitivity levels, which can be selected based on the specific application.
Elucian AFDDs offer improved safety compared to traditional MCBs, which only protect against overcurrents and short circuits. They can help prevent electrical fires and reduce the risk of property damage and personal injury.
Elucian RCBOs (fusebox rcbos) is an electrical device that provides protection against electric shock and overcurrents. An RCBO combines the functions of a residual current device (RCD) and a miniature circuit breaker (MCB). It is designed to automatically disconnect the circuit when it detects a residual current. These can be caused by an electrical fault and/or leakage and overcurrents caused by an overload or short circuit.
Elucian RCBOs are compact and can be installed in a distribution board or switchboard.
They come in different current ratings and trip sensitivity levels, which can be selected based on the specific application. Elucian RCBOs are designed to provide reliable and safe protection for people and electrical equipment. They offer improved safety compared to traditional MCBs and RCDs, which need to be installed separately. They are also easy to install and require minimal maintenance.
Elucian SPD, or Surge Protection Devices, are electrical devices that protect electronic equipment. They protect from voltage spikes and surges caused by lightning strikes, power outages, or other power-related issues.
An SPD is designed to divert excess voltage and current away from the equipment and into the grounding system/earth leakage. This prevents the equipment from being damaged or destroyed by the surge. Elucian SPDs are compact and can be installed in the electrical panel, close to the equipment it is protecting.
