# What is 32A MCB used for?

## What is 32A MCB used for?

Typical Uses for Domestic MCBs 32 Amp – Ring Final. The technical term for your power circuit or sockets. A two bedroom house for example may have 2 x 32A power circuits to separate upstairs and downstairs sockets. Larger dwellings can have any number of 32 A circuits.

### Is DP and MCB same?

SP (Single Pole) MCB: In Single Pole MCCB, switching & protection is affected in only one phase. Application: Single Phase Supply to break the Phase only. DP (Double Pole) MCB: In Two Pole MCCB, switching & protection is affected in phases and the neutral. Therefore the N is also switches.

How much load can a 32 amp MCB take?

Calculate Size of Main ELCB & Brach MCB of Distribution Box

Size of MCB/ELCB
25.0 32 32
32.0 40 40
40.0 45 45

What is DP switch used for?

A double pole switch can be used to control light and a fan or 2 lights on separate circuits. It is easy to wire a double pole switch to work as a single pole switch because only one side is used instead of both.

## Does MCB protect from electric shock?

The MCB protects the RCCB from over-current and short-circuits current. The combination of these two devices provides a very effective form of protection from electric shock, and it is widely used for protection against a leakage current of about 30,100 and 200mA.

### What are 16 amp MCB used for?

The purpose of the MCB rating is to protect the cables by preventing them from carrying a current greater than they can handle under fault situations.

How many watts can a 6 amp MCB take?

The estimate that a 6A MCB should have a max continous load of 1200W or 5.2A is a sensible approach as if you throw vd, Zs and circuit length into the equation which also generates current you probably are just below the 6A which gives you a sporting chance of not having nuisance tripping.
