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.
