Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10MM SHOWER OR COOKER CABLE Can be used for a shower or cooker installation, i used it for a 10.5kw electric shower with a ceiling mounted pull switch, just had enough as fuse-box was nearby, measure up before purchase as you may need more cable than you thought. this could be more flexible, it was a bit stiff to use especially in the switch box. THIS 10mm cable WILL CARRY 43AMPS AT 30* AND 39AMPS AT 70DEGREES AS 10.5KW IS 43.75AMPS, this cable is just big enough, if shower bigger than 10.5 go for the 16mm cable as this will carry up to 57amps.

What size sleeving do I need for the earth? Thanks.

Asked by: JC71
Hi We do not manufacture sleeving, so cannot advise which specific sleeving to use. However, we would comment that the 10mm² twin and earth has a 4mm² CPC, which has a diameter of 2.6mm. Kind regards, Prysmian Technical

cooker installation

have cooker 13.5 kw to be installed. which cable do i need? the lengh from the cooker to fuse board is 9m , the cable would go in the wall and under the floor. how many amps do we need? what would be the size of the breaker? thanks
Asked by: annarepair
You need to confirm this with a qualified person as we are not responsible for designing your circuit. However the full load for 13.5kW is 59 amps. Applying diversity this is 10A + 0.33x49A(balance) + 5A (socket) = 31 amps. So the minimum breaker is 32 amps. You installation method is not shown in the regs but I would say the minimum size is 10mm². You are correct that twin flat is the type of cable used for these application. Volt drop is not an issue here. Regards

The 10mm twin & earth cables have different amp rates some are 42amp. other 63amp??? Which one is rite

How can the same cable have such a different AMP carrying capacity ?
Asked by: Barl
The current rating depends on the installation method. There is a table in the wiring regulations (Table 4D5) that gives ratings for various installation methods. 10sqmm 6242Y shows *enclosed in conduit in an insulated wall* 44Amps. *Clipped direct* 64Amps. both are based on 30deg.c ambient temperature & both are correct.
