How many amps can 16mm Armoured cable take?
The swa cable is 3-core. The house is occupied by an elderly lady who wouldn’t use any equipment with a big load. I was of thinking of using 16mm because the consumer unit is the kitchen and it would be easier to conceal than 25mm and 16mm is able to handle up to 94A.
