Tip on Best Way to Size Your Armoured Cable 6mm 3 core

To give you an example on how to size your cable, we take our 6mm SWA cable rating and forget about this for a moment. This is a result from the free cable calculator we provide. It shows that over a 27 meter run the cable will have 6.83v drop. This is lower than the permissible  3%  and would therefore be the correct cable for a 32 amp armoured cable supply over this length. You can try using the cable calculator here if you need any help, feel free to call.

Step 1: How long is the cable run in metres ?

Step 2: How many AMPs do you need ?

Step 3: Select if 3 or 5 % volt drop Required ( 5% for lighting 3% for everything else)

Step 4: Press calculate, you will then be given results like the below table.

Description

6mm 3 Core Armoured Cable
 
Suitable for under and over-ground usage alike, 6mm 3 Core Armoured Cable is a dust and waterproof variant of electrical cable that is commonly found within powered networks and supplying mains electricity to a large variety of devices, both domestic and industrial.This particular type of cable is constructed using Plain Annealed Stranded Copper for the conductors, XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene) for the insulation, PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) for the bedding and sheathing and Steel Wire for the armouring. Not only does the Steel Wire Armour provide a method of mechanical protection, meaning it is suitable for installation into highly-corrosive environments, the armour also provides a form of CPC (Circuit Protective Conductor) meaning it can be used as an earth for the cable. This means that an earth core/cable is not required although it is still recommended as an extra safety measure.
