Single Module Arc Fault Detection Devices

Providing  additional protection against electrical fires caused by arc faults. You want to keep you and your clients properties safe. So do we.

A clever little device

It does the job of an MCB and an RCD, and it is able to detect arc faults that other types of technology simply can’t. What’s more, it is the same size as a standard MCB and that means that it can be retrofitted into existing boards to upgrade the levels of protection against electrical fires.

Time to retrofit

This latest product from Wylex can also be retrofitted into existing Wylex consumer units. Saving you time on site and helps you get on with more important jobs.
