16mm Twin and Earth Cable 25m Coil (85A)

10mm twin and earth current carrying capacity

The table below shows the current carrying capacity of 10mm twin and earth cable. This cable is mainly used for domestic cooker and shower circuits rated at 40A AMP. As you can see the amount of current the cable can take changes depending on how the cable is installed, Clipped direct is the larger figure as it allows the cable to cool and dissipate the heat out better than when its embedded into a wall.

We have some great posts and pages for further reading and technical information on twin and earth cable
