2.5mm 2 Core Armoured Cable is a type of electrical cable used to supply mains voltage electricity for a variety of uses. As this cable is armoured, it is suitable for underground installations as the galvanised steel wire armour will protect the cores from damage.
If you’re looking to terminate this cable into a junction box or device of any kind, you’ll require CW20S outdoor glands or BW20S indoor glands. To attach the cable to a wall or structure, you’ll require CC6 cable cleats.
This cable is commonly found in a range of installations including the following;
- Garden Lighting
- Factory Lighting
- LED Garden Lighting
- Electric Gates
- Security Lighting
If you still need to work out what size cable it is you need, please follow this 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.
