Single BT Wall Master Socket – Screw Terminals – 2/4A (with back box)

PLEASE NOTE – This listing is for 100x wall plates, multiple views may be shown in the picture above.

Used for - This BT master socket should be connected to the main incoming telephone line into a property, it cannot be used as an extension socket.  The face plate can be fitted its standard single back box using the included fixing screws, just like an aerial socket or power outlet. 

How to fit - The BT drop cable coming from outside the property usually has orange, white, green and black wires. Usually (but not always) the orange and white internal wires are the active pair and go to connections 2 and 5 on the master socket, in some master sockets these connections are marked A & B. If you are removing or changing your current master socket, you can check which wires are the active pair by looking at the original wiring. Which way round the internal wires are connected does not usually matter, however the polarity can sometimes stop some equipment from working. One of the cables will have a voltage of -48V and this needs to go to pin 5 (B) and the other will have a voltage of 0V and this needs to go to pin 2 (A). Voltage can be checked by using a multi-meter, if you do not have one, they are available in our shop. Connection of the active pairs into this master socket can be done by unscrewing the terminals, slotting the core in and tightening back up. The BT drop cable has more than 1 pair of internal cables therefore, this is for if you wish to have 2 or more lines in your property, or if a pair fails, the chances are that there are still existing pairs available, hence there would be no need to replace the drop cable. 

Fitting an extension - If you wish to wire an extension off this master socket, normally you would need to attach a double adapter into the front of it so it can still be used locally and so a cable can be run to your extension socket. If you would like a neater installation where the wiring can be done at the back of the face plate, you would be better off purchasing a newer NTE5A master socket, we have them in our online shop.
