Can I put a plug on 2.5 mm cable?
you can use 2.5mm with normal 13A plug/sockets. Its a bit of a tight fit, but it does work, i've done it. An extension cable is fine. People seem to have fits about them, but really theres no problem, so long as its a quality lead with the right size flex.
What size cable should I use for sockets?
2.5mm 2.5mm Twin and Earth is commonly used as indoor domestic cable. The most common use for this type of cable is for circuits that provide power to sockets. It is made up of two cores and an earth core which must be covered with the identifying green and yellow sleeve when installed.
Is 1.5 mm cable OK for sockets?
The cross sectional area of the earth wire in a 1.5mm cable is 1mm and in a 2.5mm cable it is 1.5mm. This should be sufficient for most domestic socket and lighting circuits.
What is a 2.5 mm plug?
A small round connector for accepting the pin-shaped plug from certain phone headsets. While 2.5mm was the original standard for phone headsets, the slightly larger 3.5mm size is standard for music headphones and is now the more common size on phones. ...
Can you put a normal plug on Armoured cable?
Armoured cable can be connected to 3 pin plug of commando type but not to a 13A plug without some junction box. Most caravans will be supplied from a RCD with a 2.5 or 4 mm sq flexible cable laid across the grass. It would be unusually to bury cable coming from or feeding to a temporary structure like a caravan.
How many amps can 1.5 cable take?
Depending on the installation method used, the 1.5mm cable has a maximum rated capacity of between 14 and 20 amps, so its right on the limit.
How much load can a 2.5 mm cable take?
how many watts can a 2.5 mm cable take? 2.5 square BV wire, overhead wiring at 20 degrees, 220 volt power supply can be up to 4.4KW. Therefore, a 2.5 square BV wire can be used with a maximum of 4.4 KW.
Is 1mm cable OK for sockets?
Yes, 3 core is required for 2 way lighting circuits. Personally i always use 1.5mm t&e for lighting, but either 1mm or 1.5mm is ok.
What is the difference between 1.5 mm and 2.5 mm cable?
1.5 mm is most commonly used for lighting circuitry and switches. 2.5 mm is most commonly used for ring mains, plug and socket wiring. 4 mm is most commonly used for high power ring mains, plug and socket wiring. 6, 10 and 16 mm are most commonly used for high powered small appliances such as cookers.
What is a 2.5 mm jack used for?
The smaller 2.5 mm size is used more often to connect headsets to things like landline phones, lightweight two-way radios and video cameras. Those need to put a microphone into the headset, as well as audio, which is why there's sometimes an extra stripe.
Can a 6mm cable be used for a socket?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with using 6mm cable for a socket circuit and it is possible that it could be required, cable size is simply dictated by the load to be put on the circuit, the voltage drop of the cable, the protective device (fuse/mcb) on the circuit and finally the cable run.
Can I join 6mm and 2.5mm cable in radial circuit?
The radial shower circuit cable is 6mm and protected by a 40A mcb. My plan is to connect the 6mm cable to a length of 2.5mm cable which will run to the new socket in a utility room. My question is can I simply join the cables in a 30A jct box in the loft and replace the 40A breaker with a lower rated 20A version at the consumer unit.
How many amps are in a 2.5mm cable?
However, the 2.5mm² cable is rated between 20 and 27 amps, so every socket must be on the ring, and any branches from the ring must only serve a maximum of 2 single 13A sockets (26 amps). You cant go feeding a long branch of 13 amp sockets, because the 2.5mm² cable could potentially burn up before the fuse blows.
Can 2.5mm flex ever be wired to a socket?
I quite often will use 2.5mm flex to wire to a flying socket (from an FSU) as part of kitchen installs - looks a little odd hanging out the bottom of the plaster but once the appliance is plugged into it you get 100% flexibility around pipes, cabinets etc. and don't have to worry pulling fitted applicances in and out.
