So it's fair to say the cables insulation is covered with, er, insulation.
Conductors and insulators are mutually exclusive (notwithstanding the fact that nothing is a pure conductor or a pure insulator).
It would be a conductive SHEATH for mechanical protection not conductive insulation.
So when are you going to give the op advice?
Glad I don't live in Ireland and I need new double insulated tails fitting,,,, Begorrah.
Aye so that'll be insulation then. I'm glad we agree at last.
I am not compelled to offer advice in the manner in which you decide. I have given plenty of helpful information on this thread - unlike you.
I have been following this argument with some interest. As an amateur can I make the following observation, with some trepidation!
Given that the standard for T and E specifies a minimum resistance for the sheath (unless I am mistaken) is it not logical to describe the sheath as having insulative properties?
As I say, I make the observation with temerity, not wishing to poor petrol on the fire (if indeed it is possible to fan the flames any higher).
No resistance is defined by the Standard, much less the same as the insulation.
I am from Ireland and superior to you in every way so it is clear that you are intimidated by that.
Your superior because your from Ireland?
I am mistaken then, excellent; it means I have learnt something today.
No. I am superior for a whole host of reasons. Being Irish is just another strength. I know many good people from England too, though you won't find most of them on this forum.
Superior to who? Everyone on this forum?
Hey Ricky.........I am Irish.... as mentioned in previous post to you, which you seem to have forgotten.
You know...... pure pedigree Irish...not half Scottish like most of you lot in Norn Iron.
You don't seem to have much Craic about you ?
Pop down south, (have a Guinness) and get a refill.
I have no Scottish blood.
Picts Mr R..I think you have a very good chance of having some Scottish blood in you.
Think it might be an idea if everyone posting on this thread double checked any current regs or standards they are quoting to insulate themselves from attack to be sure,to be sure.
An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman go into the wholesalers to buy some cable ....
The Englishman says..
5 metres each of 16mm double insulated tails please me old mucker.
The Scotsman says
Any deals on 5 metres of 16mm double insulated tails ...if not.... I'm doomed.
The Irish bloke from Norn Iron starts a fight about linguistics and the vernacular.
