Hi peeps,
Can't remember the BS for the main switch that would be fitted to a Crabtree C50 board, which would be full of 3871's any suggestions please?
I could not isloate the incpmer to take the switch out to check it & when I did the job I had 60439 in my head which it is not as it is too early for that!
Just gonna do a webearch now.
TIA.

Andy,
No it is a std main switch, I just could not remember the No!
4293 is for RCD's.
5149 is for air break main switches.
I think KME knew what I was after just could not remember the exact no.
At least he had 2 in mind which was more than me!!!
