Industrial Cables Multi-Core Flexible Cables

318TRS to BS 6500

Application and Description

318TRS to BS 6500 cables are suitable for use with electronics and electrical equipment such as appliances, small hand tools and office equipment, where the cables may be subject to light and medium stresses in both dry and damp environments. They can be used in flat irons, soldering irons, kitchen aids, toasters, stoves in connections with light commercial electric tools. 318TRS to BS 6500 cables are also suitable for fixed installation in furniture, decorative coverings, wall partitions and pre-fabricated building parts. 318TRS is equivalent to harmonized code H05RR-F.
