Cable?

Whats the currant capability of this cable been a while sinse I bought cable used to 45 amp 15 amp and so on is this more euro madness?
Asked by: AlanTheBraw
It depends on installation method. 2.5 T&E is commonly used for 32Amp ring main but if used for a radial circuit please refer to the wiring regs table 4D5 giving 6 different methods. E.G Clipped direct Max 27Amps (recommended for lengths up to 12m due to volt drop of up to 2.5%) In loft covered by more than 100mm insulation, Max 17Amps (recommended for lengths up to 19m)

Is this all right for power sockets inside a shed

Asked by: MwJedi
2.5mm² is commonly used for power circuits (both ring with 32A fusing and radial with 20A fusing). If in doubt refer to a qualified electrician.
