Evening ,

has anybody ever supplied a single phase fuse board with 25 mm swa ?

If yes what make of board wylex ?

I need a box tall enough so i can get the 25mm swa into the switch easily

SWA 25mm is a lot more hard work to bend than 25mm tails .

Is there a board on the market that can do this job.

I dont want to install a 3 phase board with a link across the bars .

cheers

id probably be inclined to use a wylex board, as mk items tend to shift and end up at a crap angle as the din rails are too small for a tight fit, especially with cables like these hanging on them.
If you have the space, id gland off the cable into some galv trunking and run the conductors into the board. Gives you a bit more free conductor to get a nice fit.

Its all about finger bending power!

Leave the cores longer than they need to be, and bend them using the core as a lever, trim to length and connect

I have done it with Wylex, but it was with one of their big consumer units http://www.gil-lec.co.uk/wylex...-24-way-3-x-rcd-switch

However I don't think it would been of a hassle with a standard board, the Wylex metal clad boards are taller than the plastic ones.

Hager 23/24 way DB

Same size as a 8way tp&n DB , really pleased with how much room was in there once started using rcbos etc

Try it , looks good and for those who believe a nicely connected fuse board gives you an idea on the standard of the installation then this is the board to go for

Everything is relative regarding size
If you have a problem with a cable entry due to size an engineering solution is to fit a marshalling box via a short length of trunking with two end caps an adaptable box or a through BESA box then almost CU, enclosure or DB will be able to accommodate the SWA cable whatever size, as long as the terminals are designed to accept the conductors. A marshalling box gives you options.

Good luck buddy
