IP66 Switch

"Easy to install. Good IP66 features, which are important for outside use, when compared with IP55. Case needs some cutting or drilling, depending on the application."

Good positive switch

"It looks decent and is configured with the LED to stay on so you can find the switch in the dark! 20mm knockouts simply push out - easy!"

"no complaints at all, especially when you consider the MK alternative at over twice the price. its almost identical. you can go slightly cheaper, but I wouldn't trust some of the other makes i've seen used. This is a great, solid, well made product at a decent price."

A switch is a switch
5 Sep 2014
By
, Wakefield
"It does it's job alright. Just seems to be a bit soft as far as the switch action goes. No real feel to it more of a rocker than a positive switch. 3 stars for reliability may seem a bit mean but I have no real way of telling as it's just been fitted."

A good product
17 Jul 2014

, Merthyr tydfil
"Purchased two of these to fit with outside PIR lights. They appear to be waterproof and don't look out of place on the wall. The connections are a little bit fiddly especially altering the neon to the switch mode and using the single terminal block for the neutral supply. This terminal could be a bit larger and easier to connect to. Overall though a good product at a reasonable price."

Beware the neon
1 Jul 2014
By
, Yorkshire
"For use without a neutral lead, beware the way the neon is wired. I found that the live-switched lead shows 120V when switched off!
The only way round this I found was to disconnect the neon."

"great little switch ,fitted these to the stable , much better than the old switches and the neon helps in the dark.
the only downside is that the gland entry points don't all ways punch out cleanly"

Great switch - BUT......
24 Jun 2013
By
, guildford
"Very simple to fit - BUT .... There is no mention in the instructions to the effect that if you remove one of the blanking plugs for the access point for the wiring, you will need to purchase an additional gasket to seal around the wire as they don`t include one in the pack!!. Spent ages thinking there was something missing and finally called the technical helpline.
Suggest they put something in the instructions to make it clear."

Failes after less than 1 year
17 May 2012
By
, London
"I used one of these to switch the power to my pond punp - obviously not submerged its placed about a metre from the pond. After less than one year it was full of water and blowing the fuse. Interestingly the water did not drain away so not sure how it got in. I am using external grade waterproof glands"
