Yes it is - part code is PDL 680TMPBBK
Yes, All of the PDL640MF RCA sockets are RCA connection on front with F-Type connection on the back.
PDLO695MSS = Stainless Steel
PDLO695MBBZ = Brushed Bronze
PDLO695MPB = Polished Brass
PDLO695CWH = White
The part code is PDLO695MPB .
Clipsal trailing edge dimmer module code is 32E450TM
PDL trailing edge dimmer module code is PDL624TM
both of these dimmer have been improved for LEDs
That is the PDL683VWP, Waterproof switchplate (IP56)
They can be found on page 33 of the 2014 PDL Pocketbook.
There is no white plastic cover available but the following Metal finish covers are available:
The part number for a dimmer in PDL that will cover LED's is a PDL624TMWH.
No, that is only available in Brushed Bronze - PDL683WPMBBZ and stainless steel - PDL683WPMMSS
There was a 20A version available for about 6months about 5 years ago (about 2008)
No, there is no Clipsal alternative available
No, this is only designed and tested for switching 230VAC
Use the regular Modena grid and surround with a full blanking module - code PDL880BML
The 685 and the 686 take the same coverplate so the code is the PDL686MSS (for stainless steel)
PDL800GPSWH grid and plate
PDL800mac x2 + vdib17756uwe x2
blank 880bm blank
The replacement is a PDL 680
we have a range of 32amp switch and 45anmp switch which should suit
PDL380M32 , PDL680M32wh 32amp
No it doesn't, but you can use the PDL681VWP as this is IP56 rated.
Refer to PDL Catalogue and Pricing Guide Issue 70, page 33.
Improved LED dimming
There has been a change to the dimmer This range has been improved to better control LEDs and LED drivers at lower light levels
A small new yellow label has been placed on both the product bag and the carton label ("Improved for LED")
PDL800MAC Is the 30 series adapter mech.
- PDL800MACWH for white
- PDL800MACBK for black
No, Architrave grid and plate available PDL561VH but switch mech needs to be purchased separately.
The part code for a standard switch is the PDL681M20
The installation sheet for the 100MPIR is at
Please note, the code for the on/off switch is now 681M16HFS, if you want a switch with a hinged flap printed SENSOR, which is good to avoid the switch being turned off accidentally. Also please be aware of the load limitations on the PIR, it is not rated for use with LED's.
With the 2 switches and the PIR as seen in the instructions you will need a triple plate, as long as these are the only switches you want on the plate, which is a PDL683VH. This is the grid and cover plate, available in white or black, and if you need a metal cover plate you will also need to order the PDL683M** where the ** is either PB for polished brass, BBZ for brushed bronze, or SS for stainless steel.
There is another option if you find the triple plate too busy or you have other switches to go in the plate, there is a 3 position rotary selector switch available that does Auto Off Manual in one switch, so with the PIR you will only need 2 module holes (PDL682VH). The rotary switch code is 687M3A/M which you can see at:
As a general rule of thumb -
PDL items require PDL at the front of the code.
600 series item codes start with 6.
600 series switch codes start with 68.
The number of switches fitted in the plate is the 3rd number in the code, 681 = single 600 series switch, 682 = double 600 series switch
600 series socket codes start with 69.
The 3rd digit in a socket code indicates the type of socket, 691 = single vertical socket, 692 = double vertical socket, 694 = single horizontal socket, 695 = double horizontal socket.
Most codes require a colour code at the end, WH = white, BK = black.
eg. To order a black double vertical switched socket the complete code would be PDL692BK.
800 series (Modena) item codes start with 8 and follow the same format as above. (800 series items with Strato plates start with S8...)
eg. An 800 series Modena double switch in white = PDL882WH, a Strato double horizontal switched socket in black = PDLS895BK
In both series metal cover plates are an extra option to be supplied separately, coded to fit the plate required, eg. 600 series single switch metal plate in Stainless Steel = PDL681MSS (M = Metal, BBZ = Brushed Bronze, PB = Polished Brass) Some plastic cover plates are available eg. PDL681CWH (C = Cover), PDL800PSCH (PS = Plastic Surround, CH = Champagne, there are 9 colour options in 800 series)
Strato brushed aluminium plates also need BK or WH to decide the trim colour, eg. PDLS800CBABK or PDLS800CBAWH (C = Cover , BA = Brushed Aluminium)
Module grids with covers are available in BK or WH, eg. PDL684VHWH (VH = vertical/horizontal since the grid is empty and module can be fitted either way), PDLS800GPSBK (GPS = Grid, Plate, & Surround).
Grids without covers included are only available in Modena 800 series, PDL800G (horizontal) or PDL800GV (vertical)
