I plan to attach the socket to a 50mm x 50mm post. Are the the mounting holes close enough together to allow this?

Asked by: Postmaster
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The mounting holes pre-formed in the enclosure of this BG Nexus 13A 1G Switch Socket are 70mm apart centre-to-centre, so they will be well wide of your post unfortunately. Perhaps you could attach a mounting board to the post which will be wide enough for the holes in the box, but for aesthetics no wider than the 111mm which the box is at its widest point.

Cable Glands

I have a reinforced outdoor cable14 mm. Can you give me the maximum individual cable size and the overall cable size this will take please. I.E. Where the whole cable goes into the unit and also where the live/neutral/earth wires actually fit.
Asked by: Santatony
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The BG Storm range weatherproof enclosures come complete with 20mm knockouts pre-made, so maximum cable size will depend on the capacity of the 20mm gland which us being used. The terminals in the socket itself are capable of accepting 3x 2.5mm², 3x 4.0mm² or 2x 6.0mm² cables.

Can BY Nexus 1G switch socket be used in a bathroom ?

Asked by: 4444
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This weatherproof socket enclosure is rated at IP66 when closed, meaning that it will withstand pressurised jets of water from all directions, which should be more than adequate for a bathroom environment.
