  •  The type of fuses used in this old board is of the rewirable type.

  •  Rewirable fuses do not offer protection against electrocution due to accidental contact with live parts

  •  A modern fuse board (or consumer unit) uses M.C.B.'s (miniature circuit breakers) to protect the individual circuits.

  •  M.C.B.'s are like switches that turn off when a circuit becomes overloaded or faulty.

  •  Rewirable fuses are often mistakenly repaired using ordinary wire or wrong size fuse wire which could result in a    fire.

  • When a rewirable fuse "blows" it will have to be repaired (assuming there is fuse wire to hand) which is a fiddly process

  •  M.C.B.'s are reset by simply switching back on - no need to rewire them

  • 17th edition fuse boards incorporate two R.C.D.'s (residual current devices) which offer additional protection against electrocution on all circuits.

  •  RCDs provide protection by switching the current off immediately. When electrical leakage to earth exceeds as little as30mA (thirty thousandths of one Amp),the RCD will switch off the current within 40 milliseconds (less time than a single heartbeat), therefore turning off the electricity before you receive a harmful electric shock.
