Ok. Which colour do I use for the earth and the neutral I guess the brown is still the live. who knows ? it used to be red in the good old days!! I could take a stab in the dark and say gray was the earth because black used to be the neutral

Asked by: 77Oldgitt
When the appropriate sleeving is used and both ends of the cable is sleeved you can use the colour that is most appropriate, however we are not installers and would recommend you consult with a qualified electrician.

Is this actually 2.5mm CSA?

Each conductor is made up of 7 strands that I measured at 0.65mm in diameter (using digital calipers), that calculates at 0.332mm square, multiplied by 7 is 2.332mm square. Can you reasure me that this cable is 2.5mm square as described?
Asked by: Jeeper58
Hi, The cross sectional area is a nominal area. The conductor does not have to be meet the exact physical cross sectional area stated, the important consideration is that the conductor does not exceed the maximum resistance for the size, stated in BS EN 60228. We can confirm that the resistance of this conductor is in line with that requirement.

Is the sheath colour black or grey? Description states grey, but picture and specification states Black. Which is it?

Asked by: Twert
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Technical Support. This cable product has Brown, black and grey XLPE insulated cores and a black sheath. The sheath colour specified under "Specifications" is an error. We will seek to have this amended.

it 2.5 enough to run a man cave?

to add context I plan to run the armored cable from my main fuse box to an outhouse fuse box (weather proof) then run two circuits , one for lights and one for c6 to 8 plug sockets ? is 2.5 enough to take that load of should I aim for 4mm
Asked by: Nortz
There isn't a straight answer to this, and neither answer previously really tell you what you would need to know. Cable diameter determines overall load. 2.5mm2 cable should allow up to around 5kw comfortably, so it would depend on what you're running in your 'man cave'. If you plan on having any form of electric heater, go for 4mm or 6mm as 2.5mm would not be sufficient. You also need to take into account longitudinal length of cable and what you're housing it in to allow heat disputation. I don't mean this rudely, but if you have to ask a question like that, get an electrician, have them install it and test it, too many injuries are caused by people thinking they're sparkies.
