It has its own circuit breaker in the panel and a separate cable line, on which the socket or point of lighting is located. Such wiring allows you to control each element of the electrical circuit, but at the same time the length of the wire is much increased.
    The layout of the "cable" is different from the "Star" in that there are several elements on the same cable. In apartments, one type of wiring is very rarely used, usually a mixed type is used to obtain the desired result.The most commonly used type of wiring is through junction boxes. On the staircase there is a shield with meters and several switches, from which a power cable is pulled into the apartment.

For an electric cooker, the main automatic machine must be at least 63A.
    Wires are laid only vertically and horizontally, are strictly at right angles to each other. Wires to sockets are brought only from below, and to switches from above.Depending on the method of laying the wires, they are divided into installation and installation.
