    I have just purchased a transformer for some under cupboard strip LED's. The unit is CE marked. The ELV side of the transformer has 2 short flexes coming out of it with a CSA of 0.75mm². I was going to just extend these out to the 2 strips of LED lighting I am installing but after reading 715.524.201 I am concerned that 1) I need to run out in 1mm² flex 2) the transformer unit will not meet the requirements of the regs due to the 0.75mm² output flexes.

    Any advice here?

    The transformer or any other manufacturer fitted flexes are not covered by the Wiring Regs

    My 3kw kettle has got a 1.0mm flex on it.

    The tails coming out the transformer are only 300mm each pair in 0.75mm².

    Anyway, install done I used 1mm² flex to comply with 715.524.201 part i), seemed a complete waste of time when connected to a 0.75mm² flex at the transformer.
