WYLEX NSB Series

WYLEX NSB Series MCBs & RCBOs

Older, obsolete range of WYLEX BSEN60898 MCBs for domestic & light commercial use. Not suitable for fixed busbar teeth of WYLEX TPN boards, does however use a toothed busbar

Popular in social housing/council specifications, there are a great number of WYLEX boards still installed with NSB circuit protection across the UK.

NSB series circuit breakers are 6000A breaking current (6kA) and the range is as follows:

  • 60898 Type B MCB = 6A, 10A, 16A, 20A, 32A, 40A, 50A
  • 60898 Type C MCB = 6A, 10A, 16A, 20A, 32A, 40A, 50A
  • 61009 Type B RCBO = 6A, 10A, 16A, 20A, 32A, 40A, 50A
  • 61009 Type C RCBO = 6A, 10A, 16A, 20A, 32A, 40A, 50A

The ‘Depth’ which is the total front-to-back measurement (furthest point above shoulder of din rail connection): 70mm

WYLEX NHX SERIES MCB "DEPTH" (FRONT TO BACK) DIMENSIONS SIZE
WYLEX NSB SERIES MCB “DEPTH” (FRONT TO BACK)

The depth of the busbar connection from the front face of lower part of MCB: approx 29~30mm

Busbar connection is by cage clamp to front. Also has cut outs at the front for busbars which screw to the MCB instead of the toothed busbar.

Note clamp leaves gap at back, beware that busbar tooth is correctly located in MCB and not behind the cage clamp during assembly/re-assembly

The WYLEX NSB series of circuit breakers & RCBOs use the same toothed busbar and share a similar busbar connection layout as the following:

  • WYLEX NHX Series MCBs & RCBOs – Direct Swap

NB: Contactum (the company who manufacture WYLEX) have confirmed to us that the NHX series MCBs are a direct swap for previous NSB series MCBs/RCBOs. They paid us to install NHX MCBs into NSB board during the massive recall completed on their NSB circuit breakers. Indeed if you still come across any of these circuit breakers then Contactum will still pay you directly to swap then on behalf of the customer.
