CBE & Berker Switches & other Outlets for 12v 220-240v and TV: German style modular switch and outlet systems much used by vehicle builders. We only offer a limited range of the more popular aftermarket products here so far but the full systems include a ~60mm modular frame with optional backing box and assorted inserts with different functions. We supply many of ours complete, please check the descriptions. NB all are now in Anthracite or White as described (not brown). Although very similar they're not perfectly interchangeable with the CBE having hole centres at 46mm but the Berker are slightly less at 42.5mm. All Berker modules fit into the same frames/housings and all have the same overall measurements of 59.5mm with a hole cut out of 42.5mm. The underlying backing frame is ~55x55mm. CBE are approx 60x60 overall.
CBE and Berker examples pictured above, hover mouse to see descriptions. CBE may be labelled Vecam.

Please note that the typical UK vehicle fitment is 'Lighter Socket' (LS) and not 'DIN Standard' socket
General info & Dimensions: The DIN plug is the preferred type for powering accessories and is fitted to most European motorhomes. The Lighter Socket is still common in the UK though. To make life easier we offer adaptors to convert from one to the other. We've tried to be specific about types here but you might also find references to 'standard' = 'DIN' and to L.S. / LS = Lighter Socket or LT = Lighter Type. Universal plug fits either, just twist off the red cap to convert from LS to DIN and twist back on to convert back to LS; easy! The other standard to refer to is the maximum allowed current, these days that is normally 8Amps (about 100W). It is also possible to use up to 16A (nearly 200W) but only if using one of the Heavy Duty items on offer and also only if your vehicle fuse and socket wiring support it. DIN Sockets go in an 18mm dia hole and most LS go into a 1" dia ~25mm dia hole but some 'power socket' and push-in versions may require a 28mm hole. The din socket itself is about 12mm diameter compared with about 20mm for the lighter socket. If you don't see what you want here, see our Procar page for a wide range of adapters and connectors - click blue link to go there and use 'back' or the Gas & Electrics menu to return here.
Frilight single and double switches, available in matt silver (only -
the chrome shown in pictures is just to show the switch design!). Ideal
12v units to give a contemporary yet homely feel, perhaps even a bit 'up
market'. See below for pricing and purchasing.
Ireland: Regrettably we cannot offer the standard postal
service to our Irish friends. That Irish Sea is expensive water so we have to make additional
'postage' charges, typically an extra £2.00 for jiffy bags to the south
but around £14 - £25 in total for larger and/or higher value parcels and
this applies to both north and south. Occasionally delivery times will be extended too. You can add extra postage to your shopping basket
below or add various make-up amounts using our 'Specials Offshore ...'
page found on most menus.
Also automotive style / panel style switches further below, similar to pictures right.
