16mm Earth Cable 6491X x 100m – High quality H07V-R cable suitable for lighting circuits, building wiring and many more domestic applications. This cable is generally used to provide protection against electrocution by providing a path for a fault current to flow to earth. This current fault will also trip/switch off the circuit breaker that’s connected to the circuit.

This cable is available is a variety of sizes to suit any application or requirement. As a rule of thumb; generally the earth cable will be half the cross-sectional diameter of the cable you’re running it alongside. For example, if you’re running a 2 core 50mm² armoured cable, you’d generally require a 25mm² earth cable.
