BS61008 as that is a recent Wylex model I believe.

Older models would be BS4293.

Thats the only numbers for that type of  RCD - RCBO's etc would be a different matter.

RCD BS number

Hi

Have a wylex rcd with WRS80/2 written on it but couldnt find the bs number on it. Wondered if anyone new what the bs number would be for this rcd. It's in a split load board. Contacted wylex but they haven't got back to me.

Cheers
