The Components of your Meter Box

Main Supply Fuses are an integral part of your home or worksite’s safety, designed to safely stop the flow of electricity if a dangerous influx of electricity comes through. Main fuses are most commonly 100 amps, but may be 80 on smaller sites, or up to 400 if you have a larger or commercial site. Ceramic fuses, found on older Meter Box, need to be upgraded to safer and more reliable circuit breakers

Neutral blocks house all the neutrals which sends power back to the substation. When a neutral block is faulty or broken, power instead travels into its surroundings, and can instead shock you

Meter’s are used to record the electrical energy used by your settlement. Faulty meter can cause you to be overcharged for electricity, or even face legal trouble, and should be replaced quickly

Circuit Breaker’s and RCD’s protect both you and circuits from fluctuations in power by interrupting circuits when a current gets to an unsafe level. RCD’s can be used over and over again, but naturally will wear over time, becoming unsafe

Earthing provides a safe path into the ground for an electrical current in the event of a system fault, protecting you from being shocked or worse. Faulty earthing is extremely dangerous and should be repaired immediately
