An electric switchboard is a device that directs electricity from one source to another. It is an assembly of panels, each of which contain switches that allow electricity to be redirected.
Many homes have old style wire fuses. These fuses have a ceramic plug-in unit that has a short piece of fuse wire connected between two screws on the unit. The exterior of the fuse unit indicates the amperage of the fuse wire to be inserted and is rated depending on the load of the circuit it protects.
When a fuse blows you need to change the fuse wire OR replace your old fuse boxes with a state-of-the-art electrical switch box. The benefits of upgrading your switch board include:
- easy circuit restoration the circuit tripped due to overload
- protection against electrocution with earth leakage breakers
- prevent cables overheating and cable fires
