The VIP series has been manufactured from a high quality ABS plastic to ensure strength and durability and incorporates a UV stabilised rubber membrane so the switch can be turned on and off without having to lift up the flap. The casing is supplied with 4 x 20mm knock outs in order to make connection as safe and simple as possible.
The socket module has been tested and approved to the required standard of IEC60884-1 in conjunction with SANS164-0 & SANS164-1. The module has also been issued with an LOA (Letter of Authority) from the NRCS (National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications) allowing for the sale of the product in South Africa.
The socket module is rated at 16A, 250V and is thus able to handle any load drawing a maximum of 16A. The contacts are made from high quality copper to ensure the safest connection by improving conductivity and therefore reducing heat which is caused due to a higher resistance from other accepted materials such as brass.
