Installation method of wall switch socket

Author: admin / 2022-09-01
Please note that improper installation of switch sockets can easily cause fire or electric shock. There are generally four cases of improper installation:
The first is to connect two wires to a pile head;
The second is that the zero and phase lines are connected incorrectly;
The third is that the switch is installed on a combustible object, and the wire core is exposed or water vapor infiltrates, causing a short circuit, so the switch socket such as the bathroom must be equipped with a waterproof box;
The fourth is that the working voltage and working current do not match the power of the socket, and it is overloaded for a long time.
So what should you do when installing a switch socket?
First, the switch should be 130~150cm away from the ground, 15~20cm away from the edge of the door frame, and cannot be installed behind the door. The position of the wall switch with the wall panel is at least 0.2m from the top of the board, the height of the surface-mounted socket is not less than 1.3m from the ground, and the installed socket is not less than 0.3m, and the kitchen and bathroom are determined separately. Do not install it on the bedside or table top, and all switches should be turned off in the same direction.
Second, bathrooms and balconies should be equipped with splash-proof sockets, or equipped with waterproof boxes. They cannot be installed above bathtubs, faucets, and stoves, nor can they be installed 20cm around the gas meter.
Third, two-hole sockets are strictly used for household appliances. The power of Yuba switches is relatively large, and more space is required. Electrical appliances that are often plugged and unplugged can be used with switch sockets.
Fourth, calculate the load. The socket without fixed load is calculated as 1000 watts, and the ordinary socket uses 2.5 square millimeter copper core wire.
Fifth, the ground wire on the three-hole socket is connected to the neutral wire on the left and the phase wire on the right; the two-hole socket is connected to the neutral wire on the left and the phase wire on the right.
Sixth, to be firmly installed, the joints are tightened.
Seventh, make sure that all wires are fully in contact with the switch and socket back seat wiring piles during installation. Eighth, the switch is usually opened and closed with the hand in the opposite direction, the right hand is more than the left hand, generally on the left side of the door, and the door switch should be fluorescent type.
