Wiring advice required

I've bought an S&P TD-250 Silent to replace an old mucky rvk, I plan on wiring it to an xpelair wac1 controller and then to a plug.

I'll leave the blank in the low speed and wire up a length of 2 core to the controller can anyone tell me which 2 core cable is best for this and also the best cable for the plug to the controller.

 

Also what amp rating would you use for a fuse?

Just normal flex cable 2 core 0.5mm2 should be more than ample with a 3amp fuse

@splifi is 0.75mm2 okay to use? No 0.5 at Screwfix.

@Exhale  I'd get the 0.75mm cable if available but if not, get 1.5mm, you need 3 core as the wac1 requires an Earth but the fan doesn't as its self Earthed,

also when wiring up the wac1, wire the fan up for the fast speed, ie N - N  L - LA  :P

 

its also worth pointing out that if you put the fan inside a grow room/tent, you need to use a good tape to seal the two join lines on the fans plastic casing as the S&P isnt totally air tight.

Thanks both I got 0.75mm2 in both 2 and 3 core.

 

The WAC1 got here this morning she's a hefty little unit! 

 

Forgot to order some glands but I have to collect the cable later anyway.

 

I noticed the outside casing on the TD250 didn't have a great join, it's going to be situated externally in the loft but I did tape it as I thought this may affect the performance. Other than that it's a great looking unit I like the bracket+reducer combination as I can just push fit 100mm pipe onto it and use some flexible ducting for the bends. :yep:

And a 20mm hole saw and arbor too - if you don't have already.
