What is the difference between a 2x cable and a 3x cable?
The 2x cables have two copper conductors inside: one for the Line phase (brown) and one for the Neutral phase (blue). Most of the Creative-Cables lampholders on the site are composed of a cover cup of the selected finish and an internal thermoplastic lampholder that requires a 2x cable.
The 3x cables have three copper conductors inside: one for the Line phase (brown), one for the Neutral phase (Blue) and one for the Earth phase (yellow/green). The conductor for the Earth phase must be used for lampholders that do not contain any non-conductive components, such as our double ferrule metal lampholders.
