MAINS DISTRIBUTION OVERVIEW  
         
At Pearce Hire we have a wide range of distribution units available. If you are unsure of what you need then please feel free to get in contact and we will advise you which units are most suitable for your needs.
         
A few notes on the information provided in the following sections.
         
Distribution Types
We have three main styles of distribution as listed below.
         
Waterproof Board
  Waterproof boards (IP55 Rated) which are mounted onto sturdy wooden back boards to ease handling. Inlets are on 2m trailing cables
         
Rubberised Box
  Waterproof rubber boxes with carrying handles for easy handling. All of these distribution units have panel mounted inlets so you will need a trailing socket to get power in.
         
Flightcased
  Our flightcased range is designed for use indoors for stages, exhibitions etc or outdoors with our range of pop-up shelters. All of these units have panel mounted inlets unless specified otherwise.
         
Protection
We have a variety of inlet and outlet protection on our distribution units which may be confusing to the uninitiated, a brief explanation of the different types of protections are below
         
MCB
  Miniature Circuit Breaker provides overload and short circuit protection of the circuit
         
RCD
  Residual Current Device or sometimes refered to as an RCCB (Residual Current Ciruit Breaker) provides protection against earth leakage. RCDs have a trip rating based on the amount of current which can flow to earth before it will trip out. They are usually rated in milliamps (mA)
         
VRCD
  Variable Residual Current Device. As above but these devices have adjustable earth leakage rating and also time delay.
         
RCBO
  Residual Current Breaker with integral Overcurrent protection. This is essentially an MCB & RCD combined in one unit.
         
Free Design Service
Pearce Hire offer a free temporary power distribution design service tailored to suit your requirements around the equipment we can supply.
