what is the ampere rating of this cable? Can this be used for wiring a 24 Amp socket from the distribution board?

Asked by: Ashwini
If it is a radial circuit fused with a 24 amp fuse at the consumer unit then the rating clipped direct or in a plastered wall is 27 amps which satisfies the fuse. All other methods of installation shown in the wiring regulations, like insulated ceilings and walls, are below 24 amps and so not acceptable. Check your installation method.

I'm installing electric cable to a summerhouse and what would be the best consumer box to use as I want to put Ilghting with a timer for outside lights and what cable would be best for sockets and internal lights

Asked by: Griper
Prysmian are the manufacturer of electric cables only so I am afraid we are unable to advise regards the consumer unit. Twin flat cable 6242YH 2.5mm² is commonly used for house wiring. It is usually concealed and 'out of reach' so it may require protection if it is in a place where it could be damaged and a safety concern. This might be trunking or conduit for example. We would always advise that you consult a qualified electrician.

I am wiring up my garage sockets ready for electrician to connect up is this the correct cable

Prysmian 6242YH Twin & Earth Cable 2.5mm² x 25m GreyProduct Code: 78006
Asked by: Gildatq2
Good morning, 6242YH 2.5mm² is standard house wiring cable used for domestic wiring, typically power sockets. So I would say it is appropriate in a garage. If it is clipped to a wall and within reach then it should be enclosed in conduit or trunking.
