Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prysmain cable Prysmain cable is a good approved product, so no great revelations here. Would be better if it were a bit cheaper, but hey ho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value cable. Bought a 100 meter roll of this, excellent value. Sadly socket was 101 meters from consumer box. Moved socket, job done!. Wife not happy though.

What type of cable

I have a summer house with a kitchen and shower and want to supply power from the main house
Asked by: Pete100
External cables, particularly when buried should be armoured. All installations should satisfy the Wiring Regulations. If in doubt contact a qualified electrician.

I want to put this underground. What diameter conduit will I need?

Asked by: Noneatalltodayever
This cable isn't designed for 'external' burial either direct in the ground or in underground ducts. Usually armoured cables are used. They are of course commonly used encased under plaster and I have heard of them encased in concrete floors; in which case conduit might be used. The size of the cable is 6.8mm x 13.1mm.

Where are you getting your current carrying capacity's from? And if this is solid core how can there be 7 strands per core?

Asked by: TheCapp
As its a multicore cable its current carrying capacity is taken from table 4D2A of BS7671. What they have done is used the worst case scenario, i.e. an insulated wall. If you read the tables the current carrying capacity improves depending on the fixing method used. Single core cables can be found on table 4D1A. However it is also worth noting table 52.2 cables surrounded by thermal insulation material over a length of 0.5 mtrs or more shall have their current carrying capacity halved. Basically, keep it away from insulation and keep it away from polystyrene too.
