If the run is more than 3 metres you run your tails into a KMF switch (isolator) and then your tails out of the isolator to the CU can be as long as needed.

If this is a domestic situation we normally run out of the kmf in twin rather than tails.

well we protect it with a bs88 80A fuse, so when clipped direct we use 16mm (witha seperate earth) which will carry 85A before correction factors. What do you do then?

wait a minute, my mistake i should have said we protect it with a bs1361 type 1.

well those pictures are actually metal switch fuses. The term kmf is from an mem product number and now all similar non metal switch fuses are called a "kmf". This is what they look like.
