First-of-its-kind switchsocket cuts installation time by nearly half 

MK Electric is adding tool-less, spring-loaded cable clamp termination to its new line of switchsockets. The MK Logic Plus Rapid Fix double switchsocket cuts installation time by up to 45%, whilst providing a safe, secure connection that won’t degrade over time.

The spring-loaded clamps can accommodate all cable types for small power circuits, including up to 4mm stranded cable. Individual cable entry and incorporated colour-coded terminals help make installation more efficient without compromising on product performance. The company says that the product is well suited for any job and helps making challenging installs in difficult void spaces, corners and under cupboards easier.

Designed with the installer in mind, the MK Electric Logic Plus Rapid Fix features upward facing access points that allow the insertion of test probes into the socket outlet. This replicates the approach usually taken when using a standard screwed terminal socket, and ensures access posed by the new screwless terminal arrangement is not constrained.

The MK Logic Plus Rapid Fix wiring range also offers the end-user safety features that make Logic Plus, a popular choice, including a 3-Pin operated ‘Child Resistant Shutter System’ and double pole switching. The switchsockets are made from urea formaldehyde, a high-grade thermoset material with anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties inherent in the compound of the product. Tested in accordance with ISO 22196: 2011, it has outstanding kill rates of over 99.9% against Listeria, Staphylococcus Aureus 6538p (which is known to be resistant to antibiotics), MRSA, E. coli and the Phi-X174 virus
