Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality. This T&E make of cable strips nicely, some other makes tear jaggedly instead of peeling cleanly, nice to work with.

Would this cable be sufficient for an electric shower if run straight from the rcd with its own trip?

Asked by: Tonin
2.5sqmm is not rated for an electric shower Max 27Amps (clipped direct) at 230V = 6.2kW. Most showers are 8kW or higher. Regards Peter Fox Prysmian Cables

Why do the specs give 18.5A rating rather than 27A?

At the end of the specifications you state 18.5A rating. For 6241Y shouldn't that be 27A clipped direct and 20A through a conduit in an insulated wall?
Asked by: opentrail
I fully agree with you. The ratings are as you state. There is no 18.5 amp rating in the wiring regulations. The screwfix data is incorrect.

6242Y vs 6242YH

What is the difference between 6242Y and 6242YH version of this cable? I know the 'H' means harmonised core colours but both versions seem to have the same core colours so what's the difference?
Asked by: Manchester1
Actually there is no difference. They are all cables with 'harmonised colours' on the screw fix site. For some reason 'H' has been put into the descriptions of two of them. For your information going forward the cables themselves will be marked 'H' on the sheath where applicable .
