Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD! Expose conductors midroll I bought a 25m roll this morning, and when unrolling it to measure before cutting, about 4m into the roll I could see that the grey outer sheath had melted. I un-rolled a bit more and was amazed to see that the conductors in several places were completely exposed. This is bad, of course, but it's a set-back in the work which was supposed to be happening today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality cable Nothing much to say other than the Prysmian product is second to none. Screwfix have this up for a very competitive price point also. It's a win win.

Conduit size

What is the minimum round conduit size required for the 10mm T&E cable (25mm)?. Cable length is 15m, for a 7.5kw appliance.
Asked by: Mex2
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. We are not manufacturers of such accessories. You would need to either refer to the manufacturer of the conduit or refer to the fill factor guidance in the IET On Site Guide. The datasheet for our product provides the dimensions for this product - for the 10mm², the dimensions are 8.4mm x 16.8mm. We trust this is of some assistance.

Can this be used for 10kw shower and cooker cable

Asked by: SG01red
We assume that you are referring to two separate circuits, and not intending to feed both the shower and oven from the same single cable. The selection of this cable for your circuits would depend on the actual load required , whether a power factor needs to be considered for the load, how the cable is installed to determine the rating and the length of run, to verify the volt drop. If the cable is installed in thermal insulation, this can have a significant effect on the cable rating. As you have not advised how the cable will be installed you should refer to Table 4D5 in BS7671 which provides current ratings for different installation methods. If the circuit is no longer than 25m, then for 10kW, single phase, the voltage drop will not be an issue.

Car Charger Installation?

Hello, Is this 10mm*2 cable suitable for running from a 32A / 40A breaker in the CU to an electric car charger?
Asked by: HomeRennovator
The rating of this cable will be dependent on the installation method chosen, as well as the length of run which will influence the volt drop. Current ratings for 6242Y can be found in Table 4D5 in BS7671. As this is a new circuit, the installation needs to be undertaken by a Part P qualified electrician

Is this cable suitable for outdoor socket?

Asked by: Mei123123
Hi, Unfortunately, due to their lack of UV resistance, our 6242Y cables are not suitable for external installations. If, however, the wiring is contained internally leading to the socket outside of the building, then we would advise consulting a qualified electrician who would provide the best course of action.

Cable clip for this wire

What is the correct cable clip for this wire. I know the cables class is 10 mm² but the outside down to something like 17.6 mm. I don’t it’s just me being a bit simple but I can’t seem to work out which is the correct one to get to support this cable.
