NTE5C mk2 / NTE5C mark 2 / NTE5Cmk2
« on: January 25, 2018, 12:08:52 AM »

What is a mark 2?

Any improvements ?

I kind-of hoped that some of the alleged wrinkles would be ironed out of the NTE5c as some users complained that the fronts could get knocked off by hoovers, robo-hoovers, infants or whatever.

The original NTE5/C, retrospectively called the Mk 1, would not fit into a standard metallic electrical backing box when that box was one which had mounting lugs on all four sides. The Mk 2 was a redesign to overcome that deficiency.

It wasn't to do with mounting lugs, more the fact that Pressac dropped a bollock on the size of the back plate full stop (their field testing is useless, we discovered the issue as soon as they arrived!). Even without ANY mounting lugs it wouldn't fit. An "adaptor" plate was released which was nothing more than a 2mm spacer. The Mk2 socket ended up even thicker than the old NTE5A's when it was re-tooled! It was only an issue if the metal back box was 100% flush with the finished surface...which most are! It obviously also affected dry lining boxes.

Mk1, MK2 & old NTE5A....
