gotta be honest, i worked for years out in the field, putting in temporary installations run of gennys, i spent 5 years doing aircraft crashes, and lets be honest, thats a pretty harsh environment

it was braided all the way for me!!! that was for three phase, single phase, and 110V CTE supplies - and the cables werent buried either, i just used to nip and tuck them under the grass with a shovel

SWA is a bit of an overkill sometimes, seen people using it automatically every time they are wiring outside

just a quick question, does the voltage on a tp+n system need to be the same between phases

well pretty much yeah, that what allows you to dispense with the neutral on three phase motor circuits

oh, and under the 17th, do we now have to call it single line and three line?:p
