i think its 40Ka (part 1) and 80Ka (part 2)

and i think BS1361 service fuses are either 16Ka or 33Ka

I'm unsure what to put on a cert if its not on the fuse? TBH Im sure it was a bs88, are they sometimes bs88s?

err on the side of caution and go maybe for the 16.5Ka might be wrong but errs on the correct side, and i'm guessing your PFC is nowhere near that.
