Havells is a new name in the UK for low-voltage circuit protection and control. The company has launched a new range of consumer units, which will shortly be followed by a whole raft of new products — including Type A and Type B distribution boards and MCCB panel board.

In recent years, the company has supplied an estimated 50 million poles of circuit breakers as OEM products to leading UK electrical companies.

The Havells range of products is designed to be UK-specific, concentrating on the requirements of the 17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations, the Building Regulations and other UK regulations.

The first product offered is the Homesafe range of domestic consumer units (pictured) and associated devices. The range extends from 6-way to 19-way designed, with single, split-load and dual-RCD options. There is also an option that includes an MID-approved meter for landlord meters.

Soon to come are Powersafe Type A and Type B distribution boards and MCCB panelboards. They are designed to satisfy the latest requirements for energy metering and surge protection. The distribution boards will include split-load units with two or three separate banks of MCBs and integral metering. Meters will provide true readings for each MCB group.
