The RV-K cable is for power distribution and is suitable for all types of Low Voltage (LV) industrial-type connections, including urban grids and building installations with a voltage rating of 600/1000V. Its high flexibility makes the installation process substantially easier and, as a result, is particularly suitable for use in difficult layouts.
It can be buried or installed in conduit as well as outdoors without requiring additional protection. The RV-K cable withstands damp conditions including total immersion in water.
