Applications Overview

CY cables, also known as screened flexible cables, are used as interconnecting cables for measurement, control or regulation in control equipment for assembly and production lines, conveyors, and computer units. They are typically used in applications requiring interference-free transmission due to their multi-core flex, tinned copper wire braid (TCWB), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) separator, which protect it from external electromagnetic influences which could degrade accurate signal transmission. The CY cable's TCWB and PET also provide protection against light mechanical stress.

These cables are suitable for flexible use when temporarily moved without tensile stress. They can be used outdoors when protected from UV radiation, and in dry or moist conditions (including oil-water mixtures) indoors.

CY control cables are not suitable for fixed wiring applications requiring compliance with the requirements set out in BS7671.

These screened flexible multi-core control cables have a voltage rating of 300/500V.
