    re: devimat 150 problem (power cable)

    i have damaged the power cable (with a power drill!) breaking the outer insulation revealing fine copper wire (which is not live).

    the mat is not heating up and i am 90% sure this is due to the power cable break however the ufh stops working every now and again (installed 4 months now) hence the 10% doubt.

    the exposed copper looks like a braid/screen and the inner insulation does not seem to have broken. would this still be enough for the element to stop heating up?

    can anyone advise the power cable spec so i can buy some (in case the section needs to be replaced).

    by the way the thermostat (550) is not displaying any error codes. would this be expected in line with a break in the power cable?

    i guess there is a small chance i drilled through the sensor cable however close examination of the plastic conduit doesn't show any breaks.

    of course i will ensure that final connections are made by a part p registered sparks, just need a steer at this moment.
