 2491X to BS 6004 Cables

450/750V PVC Insulated, Non-sheathed Cables (single core)

FGD100 07V-R (CU/PVC 450/750V Class 2)

2491X to BS 6004 Cables

APPLICATION
Airprot cables are designed for use in the switch control, relay and instrumentation panels of power
switchgear and for purposes such as internal connectors in rectifier equipment, motor starters and
controllers. The cables can be offered with the ability to restrict the propagation of the flame in the
event of a fire.
STANDARDS
Basic design to BS 6004
