Seeing as you have the hob and we don't, what do the instructions say?

You connect it as per the drawing you have.

The drawing you choose depends on what supply you have (As the drawing shows) you either have a 50A mcb or a 32A mcb and a 16A mcb (again, as per drawing)

Standard way would be a cooker connection unit, you can get double cooker connection units that will take the two cables. Clearly a commercial induction hob to need so much power.

how you wire it depends entirely on your existing wiring. Pic of the CU and the cooker switch please. (domestic switches are normally rated @ 45 A max)

You can't just replace say a 32 Amp breaker for a 50 Amp breaker without upgrading the supply cable.

The cable that was there was a 6mm with 40 amp mcb. I have changed this for a new 10mm one with a 50 amp breaker.
Cu is Hager.
Have not purchased a cooker outlet yet as I did not know if there would be anough room to connect the cables in a standard one.
So to recap 50amp mcb to 45amp dp switch to cooker outlet to hob.
The cable length is 5m long and is running in an 18 inch void under the floor if this helps(diversity)
Thanks

Diversity might help, but I'd be looking at a 50 Amp cooker switch to be on the safe side. They are fugly though..

You'll also need the correct backbox

Yes they are lol.
Cheers for the quick reply.
So I know I’m repeating myself so I just need to connect l1 and l2 of larger cable to l1 of the thinner cable and n1 and n2 of larger cable to n1 of thinner cable. And then earths etc into cooker outlet in respective connectors and then 10mm from that to the 50 amp dp switch and then on to cu .
