Rated 2 out of 5 by from bg outside switch In order for this to work properly,ie the neon to light up,you have to have a neutral. As you never have a neutral at a switch unless its double pole,I suggest you run a three core cable.which means you have a live feed,switch line,and a neutral.don't run a two core live feed and switch line because it won't work.

Load Query with respect to Nexus answer.

You state is upto 4.8Kw. However I have fried a switch with a 1.2Kw lawnmower. Current was approximately 6A and died before the RCD cut in. Do you have the proper load graphs?
Asked by: Mxman999
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This (Storm range weatherproof) BG 1G 2-Way SP IP66 20A Switch should have no problem coping with a 5A load under normal circumstances, and we certainly have not had any other similar reports, so we would like for you to contact us directly at:- technical.support@luceco.com to arrange for us to get your switch into our lab for investigation.

What load can this take?

The description says that this is a 20A switch but the load is only 240W (which equates to 1A). Can this switch take a 13A load for hours without frying?
Asked by: Kram1967
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Your calculation is correct, 240W would be only 1A at 240V so the total capacity for this switch is actually 4,800W (or 4.8kW).

Cable Access

Is there a cable access into the switch from the back of the box? I'd like to pass the cable direct through the wall so no cable is showing.
Asked by: Jayjayef
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. There is an optional 20mm diameter drill-out entry on the rear of the box, with a twin moulded ring around it for a bead of sealant to prevent leakage between the wall and the box.
