BS 5733 specifies requirements and tests to check the safety in normal use of electrical accessories which are not covered by other specific British Standards. Such accessories are intended for use in household, commercial and light industrial premises where:
Unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer, accessories conforming to this standard are intended for connection by cables or flexible cords conforming to BS 6004, BS 6007, BS 6500 or BS 7211. BS EN 61535.
This standard applies to two, three, four and five wire installation couplers including earth, (if provided), with a rated voltage up to and including 500V a.c. and a rated connecting capacity up to and including 10mm for permanent connection in indoor electrical installations. Installation couplers with additional contacts for voltages other than mains voltages are outside the scope of this standard. All Products within our range which are intended for connection to the fixed wiring of the building, (such as our Betatrak® Underfloor Busbar System and Modular Lighting Systems), use components certified to BS EN 61535.
