What Does an Electricity Switchboard Do?
The electrical switchboard is an important part of all electrical circuits as this controls every flow of electrical current. The switchboard distributes electricity from one electrical source to another. The board contains switches that essentially redirect the flow of electricity, and supplies power to the transformers, panels and other equipment to get further distributed. The electrical switchboard gets its power from a generator from a major power source, as such, it has a lot of control over the whole electrical flow in the property.

What do you get with a switchboard upgrade?
When you purchase a switchboard upgrade or replacement from All Electrics Melbourne, you will receive the following:
- A new switchboard with individual Clipsal RCBOs.

- Prescribed Electrical Safety Certificate
Why upgrade a switchboard?
Besides on the nuisances of flickering lights, short-circuiting appliances and overcrowded appearances, a new RCBO will instantly break an electric circuit to prevent electric shock – protecting your family and co-workers. What’s more, any additional electrical work in your home requires RCD (residual current device) protection on the circuit. Your house may also be quite old and, therefore, may have an older switchboard. This is very important as there may be new rules and regulations compared to when the switchboard box was installed.
What is an RCBO?
An RCBO is a combination of an MCB (miniature circuit breaker) and an RCD. All Electrics Melbourne always installs RCBOs, as this is the best way to protect you and your house. What’s more, RCBO faults are easier to find and you only lose 1 circuit in your house as opposed half of your home if you have a faulty appliance. The process for calculating the size of the switchboard and cabling enables us to select the right incoming supply to suit your electrical needs. We configure circuits from the switchboard to comply with all current legislative requirements. This keeps you and your family or staff safe. The circuit protection is upgraded. Older switchboards, in particular, need circuit protection upgrades so that we can do extra work. We do this in the most cost-effective way for you to get the best outcome without the high cost.
Get a Certificate of Compliance:
If you need to have electrical work completed on your property, usually the electrician will give you a numbered “Certificate of Compliance Electrical Work” as a sign of proof that the work has been properly tested and checked and aligns with the current rules and regulations. This is an important piece of information to keep for future electrical work that needs to be done, as there will be a record of the work done.
