Does this come with a rubber base/gasket for the back face when mounting?

Asked by: Elsubstar
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This Storm weatherproof range BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket comes with an integrated gasket inside the rim of the front section, which seals against the protruding lip of the supplied back-box to make the installation IP rated (with the use of appropriate cable entry glands where necessary). Also included in the kit are rubber caps for the pre-moulded fixing screw points, to seal the unit from any possibility of fluid leaching in past the screw heads.

What is the depth of the back box on its own?

I want to fit one externally to my caravan. I'm wondering if I'd be able to fit the back box between the inner lining and outer wall so that just the flap and sockets at protruding?
Asked by: Thorpesecuritysystems
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The design of the enclosure for this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket has a retained gasket inside the rim of the front section, which is engaged with the lip of the back box to make the enclosure watertight, so installing the box between the skins of your caravan would not allow this engagement and hence the product would not be watertight. Also, as this would be against manufacturer installation guidelines and advice you would void any warranty by installing it in such a manner.

What size are the entry points

Asked by: doanything
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. All of the knockouts around the sides of the back-box for this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket are 20mm as standard, or can be drilled out to 25mm if necessary without compromising the structural integrity of the box.

I wired my new outdoor double switch waterproof plug and when I plug something into the left hand plug it blows the main fuse

Asked by: Fuzzbox
I had exactly the same problem with one of these sockets purchased late December 16, could be an insulation issue within the socket!

breaker amp? run as single circuit from main distribution board

Anyone suggest breaker amp for radial feed to this type of socket. Looking to fit 16 amp mcb just wanted to clarify if this is suitable. Cheers
Asked by: d1yelectrical
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket could conceivably cope with two devices each drawing a maximum 13A (3,120W each) through the circuits it is possible that you would need a breaker rated to cope with at least 26A. However, the carrying capacity of your wiring would also need to be considered as the breaker is strictly speaking for the protection of the wiring to prevent it being overloaded. If you are uncertain then you would be best advised to consult a local electrician whom will know what cable ratings are and what breakers to use in a given situation, and will also be familiar with local authority interpretations of the applicable rules and regulations.
