Others too but with low stock.
What can you use it for? Can it be use for garage?
The photo is a 2 way unit strickly speaking. There's only room for two circuits. It's a bit misleading including the RCD as '2 ways' as you'd need to have that or a main isolation switch there.

Yes.


Boxed as a garage consumer unit as I picked one up yesterday.
Best in a garage. One circuitfor lights one for sockets.
16 way for £22.50 bargain, low stock but still available in a few places.
I’ve currently got one the old ‘cast iron’ units (Two ceramic fuses, Light & Plug) in my garage. Can this be changed out without using a qualified electrician?

Yes, it can. It's an easy job.Is that legal? Probably not. Can you do it competently?

Thanks for that.

Prior to the tightening of the regs, I’ve done rewiring on property I’ve moved into (back in the 70’s/80’s) . Then got the local Electricity Board in to connect/approve the work.

It was the price reduction on this unit that prompted me to look at a possible change out. I may just leave the old on in place.
What's the old one connected to? An incoming mains cable, or more likely it's spurred off your main consumer unit. I'm far from an expert on the regs, but if it comes off the main consumer unit I suppose it's much the same as changing any other wiring regs-wise.

Its a switched incoming mains cable. I.E. From the Meter there are two outputs; one to the internal (House) Consumer unit, the second goes to a switch whose output then goes to the garage consumer unit. If that makes sense.
