1.5mm 5 Core Armoured Cable is an electrical cable designed to supply mains electrical power to a variety of applications. The 1.5mm refers to the cross-sectional area of each core in ‘mm²’.

This cable contains a steel wire armour below the outer sheath. This helps to protect each of the 5 copper cores below which makes the cable suitable for use in hazardous environments.

To terminate this cable into a junction box or device, you’d use a CW20S outdoor gland pack or a BW20S indoor gland pack. Do you need to attach this cable to a wall or structure? For this you’ll require a CC6 cable cleat.

A few of the different uses for this cable include:

  • Low-voltage transmissions
  • Low-voltage Power Supplies
  • Small Powered Motors
  • Low-voltage control applications

If you require an estimate size of cable based on your application, please follow this link for our Armoured Cable Calculator.

PLEASE NOTE; this is an approximation, if you don’t know what cable size it is you require, please contact a qualified electrician so they can consult the regulations and confirm. The information you need is what type of circuit it is, either being single-phase or three-phase, the power running through the cable in kW or Amps and the length of the run.
