SWITCHES & SOCKET OUTLETS
Unlike our competitors, we are not prepared to sacrifice the quality of our products to offer cheap prices to our customers. Our switches and socket outlets are made from high quality polycarbonate materials, not cheap nylon or ABS. Our polycarbonate materials are UV stable and will not fade when exposed to light.
Our terminal screws are not plated steel to imitate brass, they are solid brass and will not corrode in time like our competitors cheaper alternatives. Our switch contacts are made from a high percentage brass and silver metals, this prevents arcing of contacts that can reduce the life of the switch mechanism.

How can you tell if your 6ka miniature circuit breaker is a genuine 6ka?
Competition in the market place always puts downward pressure on product pricing and quality, as a result many companies resort to overrating tactics – stamping a product with a higher rating than it actually is. Some importers aren’t even aware that their manufacturers have overrated a product they are supplying.
For example, a customer may purchase a Miniature Circuit Breaker that has been stamped 6000A, but in actual fact may only be rated at 4500A. Most consumers aren’t aware of the subtle differences between products of a different rating, they just rely on the integrity of the Seller. As a result, the Seller can afford to sell the product at a lower price, simply because he is buying at a lower price because it is not correctly rated.
Connected Switchgear doesn’t play those games. We refuse to be forced into offering sub rated products simply because our competitors do so in order to offer a lower price product. If you can buy a cheap 6ka circuit breaker, then chances are it is not really 6ka or not approved.

Load Centres may not be declared articles under the Electrical Safety Provisions Act, however the performance and standard of load centres is certainly covered by the Australian Wiring Rules AS/NZS3000. That makes the electrical contractor responsible for installing products that comply.
Connected Switchgear enclosures are not the cheapest on the market, simply because they are not the cheapest quality, However they do comply with the Australian Standards wiring rules.
All our enclosures are made from high grade polycarbonate materials that are UV stable, with rated temperatures of up to 720 degrees, meaning our enclosures won’t fade or turn yellow with age.
Our neutral links and connecting links are rated at a genuine 165 amps and our 12 and 18 pole enclosures have 4 neutral links, allowing more flexibility in wiring.
Our flush mount enclosures have an optional metal base.
Ask your current supplier what materials their products are made from, you may be surprised to learn that they don’t even know.
