Applications Overview

YY cables are versatile multi-core power and signal control cables suitable for a wide variety of industrial applications. These include use as an interconnecting cable in manufacturing plants and other automated production facilities for measuring, controlling or regulating equipment including assembly and production lines, conveyors and computer units. These unshielded control cables are highly flexible for easy installation both outdoors, when protected against direct sunlight, and indoors in dry or moist conditions. The tough outer sheathing protects against the effects of light mechanical and environmental stresses.

Our low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) YY cables are particularly suitable for installation where smoke emission and toxic fumes would create a potential threat to life or equipment in the event of fire.

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

The voltage rating of these unscreened flexible cables is 300/500V.
