    Seen a spark putting these in when I was subying. I'd never came across them before. Does the white plastic strand split the neutral and earths?

    It’s split concentric. Whoever made it off wants shooting, it’s a mess!

    Some heat shrink and it can make a nice job.

    would that be a code in a periodic inspection as doesnt have any mechanical protection, i,e single not in conduit/trunking or the likes of containment

    Bit of a cacky termination TBH.

    The other consideration with split-con is that it must be treated in the same way as T&E when it comes to additional protection & RCD's etc.

    well theres no rcd on the supply side of this , mind you probably been in 20 years if not olonger

    i was thinking as it over 3m it would require rcd protection... but suppose installed to differnt edition
