Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Good quality, easy to install and plenty of knockouts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hope the fuse doesn't blow Seems to be fairly well built but if the fuse blows you have to open up the box by turning the power off, removing the screw covers and screws and the removing several of the screws that hold the front plate in before you can access the fuse holder. Not something that a user should have to do. I cannot comment on reliability as it has only recently been fitted but would only recommend if you know your fuse is unlikely to blow and the user is likely to know to turn the power off before sticking a screwdriver in the back - otherwise look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from British General IP66 Spur Good quality, easy to install and plenty of knockouts. Knockouts a bit more of a pain to use for 25mm conduit that 20mm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Kit Robust and easy to fix in place with good terminals. Plenty of knockouts to suit all needs. Only problem was when I changed the fuse, I had difficulty getting the fuse carrier to reseat. Couldn't figure out why.

Need to replace switched fuse unit

Need to replace the switched fuse unit as the switch has gone on the one currently installed. Can you please advise on the replacement unit without the IP cover.
Asked by: CheekyLFC
Hi CheekyLFC, This weatherproof IP66 rated enclosure contains our Nexus Moulded fused connection unit, code:- 853 (or an iteration of it, but they are dimensionally identical including the profile, so it will fit).

Can I remove the 13 amp switch and unit and replace it with a different switch and unit as I want to use the IP 66 box with see through cover for a different switch?

Asked by: Switchmania
Hi Switchmania, The switch is retained simply by 4 flange-headed screws pushing against the rear of the faceplate, so is easily removeable, but you should be aware that the design of the enclosure is for a plate 10mm deeper than is normal for our 800 series moulded range and it is profiled specifically for that range (using a shallower plate will result in the membrane _not_ being firmly retained).

Wiring this unit up

I have wired this fcu but the light is on when the switch is in both the on or off position. Have I incorrectly wired it up.
Asked by: Garden12345
Hi Garden12345, The indicator light is connected directly to the Load (output) L and N terminals, so it sounds like you have wired your permanent feed from the distribution board into these terminals by mistake (hence putting the indicator before the switch mechanism, permanently powered).

Does this unit allow for a cable to enter/exit through the back?

Asked by: Hazrold
Hi Hazrold, Yes, there is a rear entry point which can be drilled or cut out to 20 o5 25mm diameter and has a moulded double-ring surrounding it on the outside so you can run a bead of sealant around to prevent leakage between the mounting surface and the enclosure.

How do you fit a 3 pin point plug to this

Asked by: RexSGiles
Hi RexSGiles, This is a hard-wired outdoor Fused Connection Unit, designed to be connected directly to the mains wiring in your property, so we wouldn't expect it to be fed via a plug usually (although you can if you really want to).
