FBA Consumer Unit from Eaton

Pre-configured consumer units

FBAs can be delivered pre-configured for a specific project or for continued use delivered ready to install, with fitted components such as circuit breakers and RCBO’s, as well as control devices including meters, timers, contactors and relays along with any internal wiring and instructions.

Eaton’s Holyhead factory produces MCBs and RCDs and also manufacture 250 FBAs a day, with all the prime processes carried out in-house including mouldings and pressings.

  • bespoke units are delivered direct from the factory to UK customers
  • lead times can be significantly reduced

Eaton’s well-established Memera range offers both moulded and metal clad units for surface and flush mount applications.

All of the units have the ability to accommodate a wide range of ancillary and comfort function devices and comply with BSEN 60439. They are also IP30 rated and meet the requirements of the 17th edition of the wiring regulations.

Metering for multiple occupancy

Metering applications of FBAs are particularly useful for multiple occupancy dwellings, such as student accommodation, where the landlord is required to collect individual metered energy usage

FBAs also give the reassurance that all the required components will be supplied as a complete package, thus saving assembly and installation time. Also, if the pre-configuration includes the fitting and wiring of devices such as RCBO’s, this can further reduce site labour costs such as preparing and terminating the ends of trimmed neutral wires and the fitting of bus bars etc. 

While for the end user, whether that is a housing association or hotel, they are highly configurable both in features and branding. They can also include useful information such as helpline numbers and maintenance instructions.
