Can this be used outside in conduit

Asked by: alanrc999
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support, By itself, we would not advise installing 6242Y cable externally as it has minimal UV protection. However, we believe that installing within conduit would provide enough protection for this to not be a problem (as well as providing protection from the weather) so this should be acceptable. Many thanks

Car Charger Installation?

Hello, Is this 6mm*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

How has this jumped up over £20 more than is stated in the brand new catalogue? Catalogue price £58.39, price online £78.59!

Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. Regrettably your query does not concern the product itself and should be directed to Screwfix themselves. We are not in a position to comment on pricing and stock Thank you

Clarification on Jim's Question

In some of the product photos here the cores are solid and in others they appear to be stranded. The question is: is this solid core or stranded? Probably a good idea to remove the conflicting images...
Asked by: Christooo
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. Thank you for your concern over the images we will pass this on to our marketing department. We recommend that you download the datasheet from our website for further information and read the label affixed to the product which should clearly identify the construction. However, just to help you. 1.5mm² and 2.5mm² conductors are solid. 4.0mm², 6.0mm², 10mm² and 16mm² are all stranded. (All as easily identified by the construction standard BS 6004) Please contact a qualified electrician if you have concerns over the correct selection of cables. Thank you Kind regards Technical Support
