l.v.h.b.c. fuse switch-disconnector or fused interrupter
Explanation:
Sicherheitslasttrenner, acc. to Siemens, Energie- und Automatisierungstechnik, is fuse switch-disconnector or fused interrupter

NH is Niederspannungs-Hochleistungssicherung (now there's a mouthful!) which is a low-voltage high-breaking capacity fuse or an l.v.h.b.c. fuse or an l.v.h.r.c. (low-voltage high-rupturing-capacity) fuse

HTH!

Thanks to you both for your help. An electrical engineer I consulted told me this is just a circuit breaker, and that a fused disconnect is something entirely different. Now I'm more confused than before, and am definitely having to go to the client on this one! But thanks again to you both, Beth.

Explanation:
The NH reference may also be found in Siemens.

A quick Google search yielded some interesting finds, check, for instance, these or related pages:
Switch fuses (Switch Disconnector Fuse) are quite different. They are a switch connected in series with a fuse (combination of fuse link and fuse holder) to make a composite device. The switch fuse is normally a stand-alone unit housed in an enclosure, usually sheet steel. This is well proven approach to distribution networks, used for switching, isolating and for the protecting of individual loads.
