Industrial Cables Multi-Core Flexible Cables

6241Y/6242Y/ 6243Y to BS 6004

Application and Description
6241Y/6242Y/ 6243Y to BS 6004 cables are suitable for fixed installation in dry or damp premises on walls, boards or trays, in channels or embedded in plaster. They should be laid in conduit or trunking where mechanical protection is required.

Cable Construction

Fine bare copper strands
Stranding to IEC 60228 Class 1 or 2
PVC insulation type TI1 to BS 7655
The core or cores shall be laid parallel with the uninsulated circuit protective conductor
For twin cores, the protective conductor centrally placed between cores in same plane
For 3 cores, the protective conductor centrally placed between black and grey cores in same plane
PVC sheath type T6 to BS 7655
