Is this the type and size cable I'd need to go 2ft underground for 100 metres to a new stable block? The cable will run from an outside electricity box and need to supply power to 8 lights and 4 plug sockets for a kettle, mini fridge, radio and alarm.

Asked by: Spacie
It's the correct type of armoured cable for burial. The in ground wiring regulation rating for a 6mm² is 53 amps. However the cable carrying in excess of 8 amps will have excessive volt drop. You need to decide the circuit design current (including taking into account diversity) to size the cable. Also there may be special regulations for live stock. Please refer to a qualified designer.

I want to run this from an outside outlet to the bottom of my garden underground for 100m

Would I be able to run a continuous 100m to a consumer unit/fuse box?
Asked by: SillyOld
To run 100m in 1 length volt drop would need to be considered. For a single phase 230V supply we normally recommend 2.5%. 6sqmm has a volt drop value of 7.9mV/A/m. Therefore 2.5% of 230V = 5.75volts - 5.75/7.9/100 = 7.3Amps If a higher current than 7.3Amps is required then please check acceptability of volt drop. e.g 13Amps over 100m = 4.4% Volt drop
