BS 6346 Cables

BS 6346 PVC Insulated Cables,1900/3300V

Single-core 1900/3300 V cables with solid aluminum conductor

Application

BS 6346 cables are used for power and control circuits, BS 6346 cables 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.
