Wylex MCB ( Type C ) - 10kA
Rated 40 Amps
Black Retaining clip
Type C devices are capable of supplying the majority of inductive and capacitive loads such as motors and transformers.
Surges on energisation, for example with discharge lighting, may well reach 25 times the rated current of the device, but only for very short duration.
Three Phase Distribution Board use
Wylex MCB's detect overcurrents due to both overload and fault currents.
The MCB will operate and interrupt the supply to prevent damage to the installation.
Wylex Commercial MCBs have a short circuit breaking capacity of 10000A (M10).
- The current carrying capacity of the cable should always exceed the current rating of the MCB to prevent damage.
The operating dolly may be locked in either the ON or OFF position without affecting the ability of the trip mechanism to operate.
- When in the off position, a contact gap of 4 mm is achieved. Wylex's MCBs may therefore be used as triple pole isolating switches where appropriate.
