MCB rating for sockets

Postby voyseygw » Sat Sep 28, 2019 11:36 am

What rating should the MCB be for power sockets in Spain be. My power circuit MCB is rated at 25A, this is the same rating as the ENDESA one that is used to isolate the consumer unit. I thought the ENDESA one should be higher than the other MCB’s as it supplies the all the circuits and the others should be a lower rating.

Endesa MCB will be tied in with your Potencia contract.

16A MCBs are usually used for standard power circuits that have 16A sockets.
