Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality product Used this for socket ring main in my garden office. Very stiff and difficult to keep straight in the conduit, but seems very good quality with strong thick wiring. Can't comment on the reliability as only finished work yesterday, but worked well so far.

Can this cable be installed alongside polystyrene, or could this damage the cable insulation?

Asked by: TomR87
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. We would generally advise against leaving PVC cables in contact with polystyrene insulation as this can cause the plasticiser within the sheath to leech out, leaving it more rigid and brittle and thus more likely to crack if moved. If it can be ensured that the cable is kept separate from the polystyrene, such as capping or some other means, then this reaction can be avoided. If, however, contact is unavoidable, then the LSOH variant of this cable (6242B) can be used instead as we believe there is no risk of such a reaction. Kind regards,

Is this good for 8.5kw

Shower
Asked by: Alihen
The size would depend on volt drop and length of run. Please note that for new circuits you would need to consult with a qualified electrician. For help with cable sizing, please visit https://uk.prysmiangroup.com/cableapp for more information or search ‘CableApp’ in the App Store or Google Play.

is this ok for wall sockets

Asked by: kesler
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. 6242Y Twin & Earth is a common cable used for wall sockets, though we would also advise contacting an electrician to ensure that the size selected is appropriate for the expected load. Thank you Kind regards.

Adding a Socket spur

Could I use this to add a socket spur from an existing socket? Thank you
Asked by: Imanoldsod
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group. 2.5mm² twin and earth can be used to feed a spur socket. Guidance is given in Appendix 15 of BS7671 as to the rules for such arrangements. If you are unsure of what you are doing or not familiar with the rules, you should consult an electrician.
