Hi, Don't laugh. I can't get to a shop at the moment, and I want to fit an extra socket. I want a particular make, and range, MK Logic Plus, and that brand in particular are labelling everything 'fused spur & flex outlet.' I'm guessing it's what I want, and it could serve as either. So fused spur OR flex outlet would be more accurate?? It's confusing the hell out of me, and there's no one to ask, and none to look at. Can anyone confirm that these units are what's needed to spur an extra socket off an existing one. Cheers.
Fused spur with flex outlet is exactly what it says it is. It is a fused spur, with an outlet for a flex. The outlet for the flex is usually a hole on the front. You some times see them next to hot air hand driers. The flex comes out the front into the hand drier. You just want a Fused spur.
A ring final can deliver 32A but 2.5 mm cable is good for around 20A depending how installed, but it is allowed to have a double socket from 2.5 mm cables without a FCU as it is considered the fuse in the plug stops overload.
With a 25A radial you don't need a FCU, however the volt drop limits cable length.
Flex outlet means it can clamp the cable often the outlet is out of the bottom of the unit so it is not seen, [img]https://www.mkelectric.com/PublishingImages/Product%20Images/Wiring%20Devices/White/Logic%20Plus/K337%20WHI/K337%20WHI_158.jpg[/img] so the FCU can be used as a flex outlet or without, the main point is it has the option to clamp the flex.
