Hello,

I have an exhaust fan over a stove.

The staff often forgets and leaves it on
overnight.

I need a small indicator light/neon/LED/etc to
light up when the fan is on.

I want to insert this light/neon/LED/etc into the
powerpoint itself so it should indicate 240V AC.


Is there such a thing?

Regards,

Frank

You could use a timeswitch which switches the fan on only during normal
operating hours, or by using an occupancy sensor to switch it on when
people are present.

Which country? Other options in the UK would be:

You can buy mains plugs which have integral switch and neon indicator.
You can buy sockets which have integral switch and neon indicator.
You can buy switched connection units which have integral neon indicator.
For just an indicator, you could also look at using something like an
MK Gridswitch unit with a neon indicator mounted in the grid.
