Further protection can be selected by fitting an MCB (miniature circuit breaker/s rated at 16 or 32A), RCD (residual current devices rated at 25A 30mA trip) or RCBO (combined MCB and RCD units rated at 25A 30mA trip.) An MCB protects equipment against overload , RCDs protects against electric shock, RCBO protects against both.
