Electrical Distribution Board Installation (Electrical panel / Electric board)

There are 2 main reasons you may consider Electrical Distribution Board services (DB Box) from a Licensed Electrician. Firstly, you could be installing a new distribution board for your newly renovated home or office. Another reason could be due to occurrence of constant power tripping and power failures are sometimes indicators of issues with your electrical distribution board. The electrical panel is very important to the home or office so you need to have it installed correctly to avoid your electrical wiring developing issues or power trips and failures.

Every apartment has a consumer unit (CU) also known as DB Box which serves as an electrical distribution panel. It is important to know its functions in the event you need to check for issues before an electrician gets to you. The main parts of your consumer unit are as follows

1. Miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) – These serve to protect the CU from sending excessive heat to the electrical system and appliances in your apartment. If there is a power surge, the MCB will trip off power supply to your home circuit and protect it from damage. Most flats in Singapore have a double pole MCB.

2. Residual Current Circuit Breakers (RCCB) – This is the most important part of the CU and helps to protect your home and appliances from electrical circuit leakages. It also has a test button labelled “T” that you can use to turn off the circuit as a test. If you press this button and your RCCB does not go off, then you need to call an electrician urgently.

3. Terminals – these are electrical connection points on the distribution board. Always check constantly for signs of blacking or excessive heat that may indicate damage.

There are many benefits of installing and regularly maintaining a good electrical distribution panel. Some of these include;

1. Protection against electrical shocks and electrical fires

2. Protection from excess voltage or power surge

3. Maintenance and refitting of electrical wiring
