Afternoon, I've spent the day looking for an ip55 or above 6way single phase c/u... Its to be installed inside an enw substation and from past experience they don't expect the metal enclosed c/u, so long story cut short, I've got an ip65 enclosure with dim rail but I'm not sure how to fit a neutral and earth bar as its not come with them.. .. Any advice would be much appreciated

That would be perfect however I'm doing the install tomorrow... It should never really have been left for me to order but I got it dumped on me this morning ... I think I've resolved it anyway, I've taken a neutral and earth bar out of an old c/u and attached one to either side of the box with a roofing bolt and nut

Do you not have to have some form of ‘certfication’ (not quite the right term) to produce or provide such a product?

I was just thinking the very same.

Yes that's a very good point ,I'll install it tomorrow but I've ordered the above link, so if something comes back should be an easy change

The long bar is offset because the terminal hole was larger than the others so the roofing bolt would fit through without drilling the hole

But don't you have en externally exposed bolt head connected to neutral?
useful test point, or bit of gaffer tape will sort out.
