          Is the PDL 581 hinge flap mech the same as 600 series one

          Yes the 681 hinge flap mechs are the same size

          Can the 681 switch fluorescent lights

          Yes but only up to 19A

          What is the dimensions for a PDL 681 1-Gang Switch ?

          Overall Dimensions - 118mm x 74mm
          Mounting Centres - 84mm

          What is the Code for the metal cover plate for the PDL685VH?

          The 685 and the 686 take the same coverplate so the code is the PDL686MSS (for stainless steel)

          Is the 683 waterproof switches available with press mechs

          No, not available

          Are there any metal finish cover plates available for the PDL 651?

          Yes, the PDL 682 coverplate is the same one used for the PDL 651. The metal cover plates are available in Polished Brass (PB), Brushed Bronze (BBZ) and Stainless Steel (SS).
          Code example (PDL 651 coverplate in Polished Brass): PDL 682MPB

          How do the PDL 600 and 800 series product codes work?

          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)
          Refer pdl.co.nz for further details and options.

          How much power is dissipated by the high end Quantum PLCs?

          This can be calculated as Bus Current * Bus Voltage.

          140 CPU 651 50 -> 2160mA * 5V = 10.8W
          140 CPU 651 60 -> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W

          140 CPU 651 60S-> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W
          140 CPU 652 60 -> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W
          140 CPU 658 60 -> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W

          140 CPU 670 60 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W
          140 CPU 671 60 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W
          140 CPU 671 60S-> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W

          140 CPU 672 60 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W
          140 CPU 672 61 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W

          140 CPU 678 61 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W

          To calculate BTU you can take the wattage and multiply it by 3.4144.
