What size (length, wight and depth) back box goes with this?

Asked by: Kanch
Hi Kanch, Any standard double socket sized box which is at least 25mm deep internally should suffice, e.g.:- British General 900 Series 2-Gang Surface Pattress Back Box 30mm (44707); British General 900 Series 2-Gang Surface Pattress Back Box 42mm (65187) etc.

Can I use this with an immersion heater?

The immersion heater is currently hardwired but I could convert to a lead with a 13amp plug, to then plug into the 2 gang socket.
Asked by: FabAct
Hi FabAct, That will depend on the load of the immersion heater, the smart sockets are capable of switching loads of up to 13A or 3120W / 3.12kW per socket.

Insulation test

Is there a problem when doing insulation test do you need to disconnect the socket or will they accept 250 volts or 500 volts
Asked by: Ps8780
Hi Ps8780, As a device designed for UK power systems with a nominal voltage range of 220-254V the sockets will certainly cope with any 250V insulation test, if you were to run a tied Live and Neutral to Earth test then 500V shouldn't cause any problems either as the potential on both sides of the smart circuitry will be the same so no power will be flowing through it.
