    Hi all,

    Anyone know what the BS EN number is for these now obsolete breakers?

    Model number is MCB<RATING>G. I know they can be replaced with Hager gear, but I've not been able to find any clue (on the breakers themselves or on-line) about whether they are in fact 60898 apart from the odd erroneous site selling them claiming they are 61009's.

    I'm assuming they are, but assumption is not a good plan as we all know.

    Thanks

    Christina

    They normally have the rating and type on the front like B6 or C6 and they are 60898 in that case. Hager bought them out I believe. If it doesn't look like an rcbo on line then it is not a 61009 but a 60898.

    I'm 100% certain they ain't RCBOs, but they are being sold on-line with the RCBO BS EN number.

    They definitely have B<RATING> on the front, so BS EN 60898 it is then, thank you :)

    If they just have Ashley on the front in red writing and just the rating like 6A they are normally 3871, type 1.

    Do you have some already? If so try an RCD test on them!

    Ashley rcbos are generally two module so they are obvious.

    I don't need to run an RCD test on them, they aren't RCDs as the board they are fitted in (like a lot round here) have a separate RCD unit, they don't have a test button and there is no neutral or functional earth connection to them.

    I just needed to know their BS EN number :)

    The RCBO was mentioned just because someone on-line appears to be selling the MCBs stating a BS EN number of 61009.

    I just re-read the previous posts and realise it's more about deciding whether they are 3871 or 60898 rather than mcb or rcbo! You're right -it would be obvious if they were rcbo's! Been a long week!
