Want to use this to replace older switch but has L3 terminals?

Replacing old hallway 2 gang light switch down & upstairs light and wiring is different. There is bottom row with following terminal and coloured cables L1 red, L2 yellow, L3 blue Top row L2 black, L3 empty, L1 red The backbox is earthed
Asked by: Force9
Hi Force9, It sounds like your existing switch's manufacturer chose to go with L1, L2 & L3 instead of the standard COM, L1 & L2. From the wiring colours it sounds possible that the L1 terminals should be called COM, basically each switch mechanism will be laid out like a Y with the COM on the bottom leg separated from the two L terminals on the upper arms, so this may also help you in identifying the COM equivalent in the existing switch.

Does this switch meet the relevant standards (BS EN 60669-1 I believe)

Asked by: Elrey78
Hi Elrey78, Yes, all BG switches and sockets meet the relevant standards, and you are correct about it being EN 60669-1 for "Switches for household and similar fixed electrical installations - General requirements".

Can I use this to control hall light & outside light?

Asked by: SusieL
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Yes that would be possible as the two switches are completely separate mechanisms, meaning one could be connected to the hall light and one could be connected to the outside light.
