the cable feeding my cu looks like it is all in one, with one 10mm line , 6 x 15mm neutral and 4 x 4mm cpc,

now it seems like it aint a complete cable but i bet you it would of been awkward to fill the sheath like this...

can't wait for the pic.


It’s split concentric. Whoever made it off wants shooting, it’s a mess!

Some heat shrink and it can make a nice job.

it looks a cheap cable tbh,never seen it installed,swa for 5ww springs to mind,

would that be a code in a periodic inspection as doesnt have any mechanical protection, i,e single not in conduit/trunking or the likes of containment


Bit of a cacky termination TBH.

The other consideration with split-con is that it must be treated in the same way as T&E when it comes to additional protection & RCD's etc.


Electrician's Arms
well theres no rcd on the supply side of this , mind you probably been in 20 years if not olonger

i was thinking as it over 3m it would require rcd protection... but suppose installed to differnt edition
