Applications Overview

6181Y are flexible general wiring low voltage (LV) double PVC insulated single-core copper conductor cables offering light protection against mechanical damage. These are manufactured in accordance with British Standard BS6004 and are suitable for fixed installation with a voltage rating of 300/500V in dry or damp areas, for both domestic building and light industrial wiring.
