  1. Yes, the one at Toolstation is out of stock, proably now the old one. Screwfix have one, different design: https://www.screwfix.com/p/mk-sentry-50a-sp-type-b-mcb/954kp I think the Hager would fit, that's why the electrician left it. So all ages of MK would fit? I'm really thinking of getting a new off peak board as this one is too small anyway, need to add three more slots.
  2. Ah, had another look at the board and they are MK make! The Hager was floating about ontop of the box.
  3. This is probably what I need? https://www.toolstation.com/protek-single-pole-mcb-10ka-type-b/p38965
  4. Yes, the main box is a Crabtree. The pictured MCB is a Hager from the off peak box. I need a 50a one. The Crabtree was here when we arrived and the off peak box added a couple of years ago.
  5. Hi all I have a consumer unit for my peak supply and a one for my off peak. The MCB's are different, the peak has MCBs with a terminal to the back of the MCB into the fixed busbar and the off peak box has a floating busbar underneath the MCBs, so the MCBs are different in both. I don't understand why they are different, or what the difference is called, they are all type B MCBs, I'm sure of that. I need another one for my off peak box but I don't know what to order for the variation. Thanks for any ideas, Justin
  6. Anyway, like I say, I will get my electrician to do the job. But I actually do want to know how it fits into the house wiring for my own reference and interest.
  7. In my post I state I will get an electrician to do it, bu tI will have to advise him. Seriously, I'm not a child.
  8. The electricians around here and wire up a socket but they'll have no idea about an inverter.
  9. The manual only refers to the wires in and out. Not how it fits into the house wiring.

  11. Hi, I had to start this thread again with a new subject. I now have an inverter and the suppliers tell me that I wire the incoming mains DIRECTLY into it, and then to the distrubution board. So as the solar and battery drop away the mains takes over again. I will get an electrician to do this part, but I just want to make sure that this is correct? ie Mains into inverter to distruibution board? I have found this diagram and this is the inverter: https://www.photonicuniverse.com/en/catalog/full/449-Iconica-5000W-48V-hybrid-pure-sine-wave-inverter-with-4000W-solar-input-80A-500V-MPPT-solar-controller-60A-mains-battery-charger-and-inbuilt-Bluetooth-No-battery-required.html
  12. I now have one of these: https://www.photonicuniverse.com/en/catalog/full/449-Iconica-5000W-48V-hybrid-pure-sine-wave-inverter-with-4000W-solar-input-80A-500V-MPPT-solar-controller-60A-mains-battery-charger-and-inbuilt-Bluetooth-No-battery-required.html It's just wiring it into the system I am unsure about
