BS 6346 PVC Insulated Cables,1900/3300V

Single-core 1900/3300 V cables with circular stranded copper conductor

Application

BS 6346 cables are used for power and control circuits, BS 6346 can offer excellent protection through the use of

a heavy galvanized steel wire armour, so they are well adapted to underground use in industrial applications, in

moist areas.
