Our LiYCY cables are flexible multicore flame retardant screened signal and data transmission cables designed for indoor applications with increased requirements for electromagnetic compatibility such as process control units and computer systems.
There are two variants of LiYCY, one of which has twisted pairs (TP) for reduced interference (crosstalk). These cables are also available without a screen as LiYY.
The voltage rating for LiYCY cables with a cross-section of up to 0.14mm2 is 350V. Larger cross-sections have a voltage rating of 500V. They operate in a temperature range of -40oC to +80oC when used in fixed installations and -5oC to +50oC in flexible installations.
LiYCY Cable construction and standards
|Conductor||Class 5 fine-stranded bare copper conductor|
|Insulation||Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) according to VDE 0207|
|Separator||Plastic foil tape|
|Screen / Shield||Tinned copper wire braid (TCWB)|
|Sheath||Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) according to VDE 0207|
LiYCY cables are manufactured according to VDE 0812 and 0814 and are flame retardant to VDE 0472 and IEC 60332-1-2.
The tinned copper wire braid offers protection from electrical and electromagnetic interference (EMI). It also offers a moderate degree of mechanical protection.
