pictures of the Hager Consumer Units for home use, Domestic CU from Hager
You would know what a consumer unit is especially if you have any problems with the electricity in your house and you have to disconnect a series of circuits or replace a fuse, or simply to replace it if it is too old. Unless you are a landlord, a homeowner, or an electrician, a consumer unit is pretty much hidden from your sight. It is that "white box" with lots of circuits, where all the lighting / wiring / etc circuits come in and connect. And more specifically, a consumer unit is the "fuse box" which goes between the electricity meter and all the electrical circuits in the house. The modern units do not contain fuses, but MCBs. They often also contain an extra protective device called an RCD, which replaces the isolator switch. In some cases, the RCD does not protect all the circuits, in which case there is also an isolator switch to disconnect everything. This type of arrangement is called a "split load" consumer unit. Below is a list of some of the Hager Domestic Consumer Units - consumer units used in domestic environments.
