Cables designated as LiYY are unscreened flame-retardant multicore PVC cables for indoor signal and data transmission in indoor industrial applications such as computer systems, measuring equipment and process control devices in offices, laboratories and production lines under low mechanical and tensile stress. This range is particularly well suited to applications requiring a cable with a small overall diameter.
LiYY cables with a cross-section of up to 0.14mm2 have a voltage rating of 350V. Larger cross-sections have a voltage rating of 500V. They have an operating range from -40oC to +80oC in fixed installations and -5oC to +50oC when flexed.
LiYY cable construction and standards
|Conductor||Generally to Class 5 fine-stranded copper conductor|
|Insulation||Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Type TI2 according to VDE 0281|
|Sheath||Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Type TM2 according to VDE 0281|
LiYY cable dimensions
Some of our most popular LiYY cable sizes include:
|Part Number||Number of Cores||Nominal Cross-Sectional Area||Nominal Overall Diameter mm||Nominal Weight kg/km|
LiYY cables are also available up to 36 cores as standard. For more information and larger core sizes, please refer to the technical specification or speak to our sales team.
Our LiYY cables are manufactured to VDE 0812 standards and are flame retardant to VDE 0472 and IEC 60332-1-2.
The LiYY Cable is available with twisted pairs configuration. Twisted pairs (TP) are used to cancel out any electromagnetic interference from external sources or crosstalk from neighbouring pairs.
Alternatively, Eland Cables supplies a comprehensive range of LiYCY, with an overall tinned copper braid screen which offers protection against mechanical stress as well as external electromagnetic interference. For all types of European automation cable there are low smoke zero halogen variations including LiHH and LiHCH.
