Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prysmian cable Very good quality professional grade cable, easy to work with and very pliable. There is cheaper cable out there but this is easy to work with but this will save you time on the job.

can I use a 3 pin plug with this?

for a electric oven
Asked by: jaybird24
This cable is commonly used for connection from the cooker circuit (which usually terminates in a cooker outlet plate in the wall) and the cooker itself. It is not suitable for connection to a 13A plug. If in doubt consult a qualified electrician.

What cable is more appropriate for Electric Hob (6 KW) connection? The TWIN & EARTH CABLE 6MM² (Product Code: 29733) or TWIN & EARTH CABLE 10MM² (Product Code: 69495)?

Asked by: Bben
You need to refer to the manufacturer of the hob. It may be given in the handbook. For your information a 6KW load will pull 26 amps and you can find the data sheet for the products on the Prysmian web site (search for whyprysmian). However you still need to refer to the manufacturer for this application.

Is this Suitable for use in a Ring Main

I need to replace a stretch of socket ring main as the cable is slightly damaged (not exposed) should this cable be sufficient?
Asked by: glennda37
Generally speaking for 32Amp ring main 2.5sqmm 6242Y is used & the same size is recommended throughout the ring. Standard 13Amp sockets will only take up to 10sqmm total into each terminal so you may have trouble terminating depending on how many cables are going into the socket. Regards Peter Fox

can this cable be used for a 8.5kw shower

Asked by: bobbybe
Your 8.5kw shower will pull 37 amps. So this cable will be adequate only if it is clipped or in plaster. For any other of the listed methods of installation as shown in Table 4D5 of the regs it will be insufficient. i.e. you may need a 10mm².
