Control Cables

VDE Standard Control Cable

SY PVC /PVC/GSWB/PVC Control Cable

Application:

For use as a measuring, control and signal cable for the machine tool industry, plant construction, heating and air conditioning, and as a flexible cable between fixed and mobile equipment. The cable is well protected against mechanical damage by the narrow weave steel-wire braid.
• Note: should not be used in any installations where the cable is subjected to repetitive flexing.

The above ratings are based on cable in Free air, in an ambient air temperature of 30°C.

For ambient air temperatures other than 30°C the following rating factors should be applied:
Ratings for cables up to and including 4mm2 are based on 60°C conductor operating temperature with 6mm2 and above based on 70°C operating temperature.
