Rated 4 out of 5 by from Armoured cable. You can get this stuff a fair bit cheaper if you know were to go.You cant get it cheaper than this after 5pm or on a sunday. It is not the best I have used but it is far from the worst.It is worth the extra for the convenience of getting hold of it at short notice when everywhere else is closed.

Answer: 
Your load will pull about 11 amps. Both of these cables are rated to carry in excess of 25 amps so either are suitable. The volt drops of either are not significant. Perhaps you should consider if you want to increase the load in the future in which case this might influence you. If in doubt contact a qualified electrician.

I am installing this for use in an outbuilding that will be heated using IR ceiling heating rated at 600W plus normal lighting and media equipment.
Would 4sqmm be preferable or would the 2.5sqmm suffice for this application?

Answer: 
The single phase clipped direct rating from the wiring regulations for the 2.5mm² is 36 amps and for the 4.0mm² 49 amps. You need to establish what current your cable is to carry and over what distance to ensure that the volt drop is acceptable and cable is rated higher than its fuse. You do not actually say how/where this cable is to be installed. For your information you can find our data sheet on our web site at http://uk.prysmiangroup.com/en/business_markets/markets/ti/datasheets/BS5467.pdf
If in doubt refer to a qualified electrician.

This is a help line for Prysmian Group cable products . Referring to our own BICON components catalogue which you can find on the web and the Prysmian data sheet for this product then a suitable gland is Size 20S.

Answer: 
This cable is manufactured to BS5467. The standard core colours in that standard for a 3-core cable would be brown, black and grey, which are the 3-phase core colours. You can use sleeving over the cores with the single phase colours of brown, blue and green/yellow at each termination point of the circuit.

Answer: 
Good Morning, I am not quite sure to which part of the circuit you are referring. However if you mean to connect directly to the back of a domestic oven with this cable then it is not suitable. More typically the connection to a domestic oven in a kitchen is made with twin flat cable 6242Y. However please refer to the oven manual for the appropriate cable type and size required.
