Is the Clipsal brand known to anyone of you? Any opinions on quality?
The reason I'm asking is that MCBs and RCDs from them have become quite popular in Sweden in recent years as the price is lower than the established brands. (They are sold under a different brand, with a blue and yellow logo in an allusion to the Swedish flag.)
Clipsal are an Australian company, and are the largest manufacturer of Australian standard accessories down under. They are also very well known here in the UK. I have used their UK standard accessories on a number of occasions, and found them to be of good quality, also easy to install. I have not used any of their switchgear on the UK market, but I understand that it is manufactured in mainland Europe. Try the Clipsal websites for more info: www.clipsal.co.uk or www.clipsal.com.au
David, You're right on the money, there. Clipsal manufactures all sorts of Electrical gear in Australia, we use a fair bit of it over here in NZ. C-H, the blue and yellow logo, is Clipsal's branding colours(for want of a better term). They make pretty good gear too, it's all made in Australia too as far as I am aware, not China, like a few of it's competitors.
C-H, That's the first time I've seen a socket-outlet that connects like that. So I am told the wires are connected like a Krone telephone connector, ie:by the insulation displacement method, good for up to 20A apparently.
