BS 6346 PVC Insulated Cables,1900/3300V

    Three-core 1900/3300 V cables with stranded copper conductors

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.

Construction

Conductor Solid Aluminum or Copper conductor, round stranded or shaped, Class 2 to BS 6460, IEC 60228.

Insulation PVC(Polyvinyl Chloride) type TI1
