What length busbar comes with this?

I plan to use one of these with Sentry RCBOs.
I will [eventually] need the full 14 ways. Will the supplied busbar enable me to achieve this?
If not, can you supply one plus a suitable cover?
Hi Tony - yes it will, it is 15 ways and can be cut to size accordingly.

Hi, Can you tell me what size knockouts this item has? or can you tell me a similar item that has 25mm knockouts?

The switch back box comes as standard with 6x 20mm knockouts
K829 ALM is available to suit with no knockouts that can be drilled

K7666smet and k7666met-a

Hi thanks for response to my question about the -a model and rcbo.
However screwfix sell both versions at a different price one with rcbo and one wit mob? Is this an error in the catalogue?
Thank you for your questions, the K7666sMET is populated with 100A switch disconnector, 2x 63A R CD type A/C, (10MCB's 3x6A, 2x16A, 4X 32A & 1x 40 A)

The K7666sMET-A is exactly the same make up the only difference are the RCD's, they are type A not A/C as previously.

Our RCBO board is a K7673sMET which has 1x 100A switch disconector 6x RCBO (2 x6A, 1 x 16 A, 2x 32A & 1 x 40A) plus 4 empty modules.

With regards to Screw fix website if there is an error on there it would be best to contact screwfix who will then be able to update it.

Is this a standard mk product configuration?

They do a k7666smet (as opposed to k7666smet-a).
This -A variant has 2 RCD modules AND 10 RCBO, is that correct as it seems residual current protection is then provided twice for each circuit?
Hi - any K7666sMET will have 10 x MCBs and not RCBOs, as you point out this would provide protection twice and negates the need for RCBOs, also you could possibly get unwanted tripping that RCBOs mitigate against.

which blackbox?

This needs a "black box" and it suggests a 47mm (depth) size. Is the “MK 2-Gang Surface Pattress Box White 44mm (19307)” compatible i.e. correct size and fixing screw alignment.
Hi

This would fit onto this box however if using a 10mm cable you may need a deeper box - this one is actually 40mm not 44mm.
The product is not designed to go on this box from an aesthetic point of view as the plate is a decorative finish and the box is white plastic, as such it may look a touch odd.
