BS 6346 Cables

BS 6346 PVC Insulated Cables,1900/3300V

Three-core 1900/3300 V cables with solid aluminum conductors

Application

These cables are used for power and control circuits, they 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.
