Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof Socket not working which turned out to be because it was wet, when changing the socket found that the knockouts for the gland were letting water in.

Consumer Unit RCD

Hi, I live in a new build property that has RCDs in the consumer unit, do I need this version with RCD for stuff in the garden or do I need one without RCD? I don't know if they will conflict or if this will just trip quicker?
Asked by: dh58977
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Consumer Unit RCDs get up to 300mS to trip whereas the socket based RCD in this BG 13A 2G RCD Switched Socket (weatherproof) has to trip within 40mS to pass the relevant standards, so potentially this unit will trip before the consumer unit based on and therefore could prevent it from tripping at all (saving half your circuits from being disconnected unnecessarily).

Cable entry

Does this unit have a knock-out cable/conduit entry facility on the top edge, i.e. on the hinged side?
Asked by: CRBt
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 13A 2G RCD Switched Socket (weatherproof) has a back-box with knockouts on all 4 sides (between 1 and 3 depending on space) plus a drill-out option on the rear.

Does this unit lock whilst in use or have facility for such?

Asked by: Moby999
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 13A 2G RCD Switched Socket (weatherproof) has a padlock loop on the base and lid, so can be locked closed when in use (or not in use).

Will this unit reset after power loss or does it require manual reset

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 13A 2G RCD Switched Socket (weatherproof) uses a mechanically latched design so is not tripped by a power cut, which means it will not require resetting after one.

I've found conflicting views on this - if this is installed off a fused spur, with say 5 metres of cabling on outside wall, does it definitely require Part P certification? Some say it's only if it's a new circuit going back to fuse board.

Asked by: TCal
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. You will require a Part P registered installer to install and sign-off on the safety of any new cable run, regardless of where it starts from. It is only if the cable is already in place that a socket etc. can be considered to be merely a `replacement' and thus OK for anyone whom is competent to install.
