4 Core Cable - 2.5mm

Recommended Posts

Even in' all!

 

Im planning a heating radial upstairs as a fail safe for not taking the UFH upstairs. 

 

I want ant to run a 4 core cable as a few of the electric radiator systems use a 4th core for signal control. However you can't get standard 4 core cable in 2.5mm solid copper as far as I can see so can I use something like this stranded cable for the install?

The key is knowing the cable reference numbering system.  PVC rigid core T&E is 6242Y, PVC rigid 3 core and earth is 6243Y.  If you search for 6243Y 2.5mm2 you may well find a cheaper source.
