Type C RCBOs

Type C RCBOs

What is a Type C RCBO?

A Type C RCBO is an advanced electrical protection device that combines the functionalities of a residual current device (RCD) and a miniature circuit breaker (MCB) into a single unit. 

It’s specifically designed to offer enhanced sensitivity to high-frequency AC currents, making it suitable for applications with sensitive electronic equipment.

What Are Type C RCBOs Used for?

Type C RCBOs are commonly used in environments with high-frequency AC currents, such as industrial settings, data centres, and renewable energy installations. 

They protect sensitive electronic equipment against potential hazards, helping prevent any damage or downtime as a result of damage.

Can You Use a Type C RCBO in Domestic?

While Type C RCBOs offer advanced protection capabilities, they’re not typically used in homes. 

However, where there are sensitive electronic devices or equipment with high-frequency components, such as home offices or entertainment systems, Type C RCBOs might be a good choice.

What’s the Difference Between a Type B and a Type C RCBO?

The primary difference between a Type B and a Type C RCBO is their sensitivity to different currents. 

While Type B RCBOs are designed to detect pulsating DC currents and sinusoidal AC currents, Type C RCBOs are optimised for high-frequency AC currents, such as those generated by semiconductor devices. 

This makes Type C RCBOs more suitable for applications with sensitive electronic equipment requiring protection against high-frequency faults.
