6181Y Cable Voltage Rating

6181Y cables have a voltage rating of 300/500V and are suitable for fixed installation, in dry or damp areas, for both domestic building and light industrial wiring. These cables are commonly referred to as double insulated cables, "Meter Tails" cables, or "Smart Meter" cables.
6181Y cables should be installed in an area with low risk of mechanical damage, in a tray, clipped onto a surface, or suspended in free air.  

6181Y cables are normally grey, however other colours are available upon request. As you can see from the cable construction table, these double insulated cables are more accurately insulated and sheathed cables.

These cables have an operating temperature ranging between -15oC and +70oC.
