Crabtree’s small solution is a big help in arc fault detection
Crabtree’s new range of Arc Fault Detection Devices fit any new or existing installation with a Starbreaker consumer unit and require no special assembly or new busbars.
Designed to detect faults not picked up by RCDs or MCBs, they use digital technology to provide additional protection against fires caused by arcs in AC 230V final circuits.
Just two modules wide and the same height as an MCB, they provide plenty of wiring space during installation and testing. They’re two pole switching and totally isolate any faulty circuit or appliance by switching off live and neutral under fault conditions.
They’re also fully backward compatible and simply plug into the fully insulated plug self-connecting busbar system for an easy upgrade with additional protection.
