Recently did an large office refurb retaining the existing distribution gear and cabling, the building having a dedicated transformer about 40 M away from the main LV panel.
The LV cables from the tranny to the panel are 2 x 3 core 185mm, Al conductors with Copper armour, per phase.

What I found unusual was that the 3 individual internal conductors of each cable were terminated together via a brass clamp having 555mm stamped on the side (3x185=555).
Seems a bit unconventional to me, can anyone expand on this method?
