    Do you have a photo of it for me so that i can see if you have a earth leakage on there or not.

    REMEMBER: when you connect this directly from your houses DB and it does have an earth leakage of its own to not connect the supply inline with your house EL as this will trip your house when something goes wrong, if it does not have its own EL then you should connect it inline with your houses DB.

    But start here. Live (RED) and neutral (Black) on to the top of the earth leakage(EL) and the earth wire either bare or insulated green yellow to the strip that is directly bolted to the DB casing and is not insulated, from the bottom of the same EL go to the top of the first circuit breaker with the red wire and loop this to the top of all the breakers, the black wire will go to the terminal strip that is insulated from the DB by means of plastic holddown brackets. Now when you connect your equipment you put your live wires to the bottom of the breakers individually (these wires are usually red or brown) and the neautrals straight to the neutral bar the colours is usually black or blue wires. If you need more info just let me know and ill help you. :tt2:
