Crabtree’s new miniature AFDD means a big leap for electrical safety

Installers can now improve electrical safety, without any extra effort with the Starbreaker combined AFDD-RCBO, this innovative new product integrates arc fault detection with RCD and MCB capability in a revolutionary single DIN module, delivering maximum safety in the minimum footprint.

The Starbreaker Mini AFDD provides an extra layer of protection while also helping future-proof installations against ever-changing regulations. Recognised as a ‘significant risk’ in the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations, arcing is typically caused by poorly made or failing connections or failing insulation in AC 230V final circuits.

As an additional benefit, the new Starbreaker Mini AFDD-RCBO is an easy to fit ‘plug and play’ option that can be installed into any appropriate Starbreaker consumer unit, without the need for special assembly or new busbars. Explains Dave Enefer, Devices Product Manager at Crabtree. “Whatever the age of the Starbreaker unit, the new Mini slots easily into place, so it’s equally suitable for new builds, upgrades and retrofits to provide additional protection.”

Bringing three levels of safety in one easy-fit single module, Crabtree’s Starbreaker Mini AFDD represents a major step forward in electrical safety.
