Applications Overview

CY cables, also known as screened flexible cables or by their European designation YSLYCY (PVC sheathed) and HSLHCH (LSZH sheathed), are used as interconnecting cables for measurement, control or regulation in control equipment for assembly and production lines, conveyors, and computer units. They are also known by their constructional reference, YSLCY cable and HSLCH cable. They form part of Eland Cables' Veriflex portfolio.

They are typically used in applications requiring interference-free transmission due to their multi-core flex, tinned copper wire braid (TCWB), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) separator, which protect it from external electromagnetic influences which could degrade accurate signal transmission. The CY cable's TCWB and PET also provide protection against light mechanical stress.

These cables are suitable for flexible use when temporarily moved without tensile stress. CY cables can be used outdoors when protected against direct sunlight, and in dry or moist conditions (including oil-water mixtures) indoors.

These screened flexible multi-core control cables have a voltage rating of 300/500V.

Whilst both of the PVC sheathed CY cables are widely used, the UL and CSA approved version tends to be more widely used for export-orientated machinery destined for the North-American market. 2 core CY cables are available as standard with black numbered cores (YSLCY-OZ cable) with 3 cores and above being black numbered cores with green/yellow (YSLCY-JZ). Coloured cores with green/yellow (YSLCY-JB) and without green/yellow (YSLCY-OB) are also available upon request.

Veriflex CY cable selection

In addition to the various types of construction, CY control cables are available in a wide range of sizes. Eland Cables' technical team is available to discuss your specific application and to assist you with the selection of the right cable. Calibrated CY cable glands and other cable accessories are also available.

European references for these cables indicate the core configurations within the sheathing

HSLCH-JZ LSZH sheathed cable with black numbered cores and G/Y earth YSLCY-JZ PVC sheathed cable with black numbered cores and G/Y earth
HSLCH-OB LSZH sheathed cable with coloured cores YSLCY-OB PVC sheathed cable with coloured cores
HSLCH-JB LSZH sheathed cable with coloured cores including G/Y earth YSLCY-JB PVC sheathed cable with coloured cores including G/Y earth


As standard, Eland Cables supplies from stock the YSLCY-OZ for 2 core cables and YSLCY-JZ for three core and above - with the same configuration for the low smoke zero halogen cables: HSLCY-OZ and HSLCY-JZ. Colour coded insulated cores, designated YSLCY-OB and YSLCY-JB (PVC) are available on request.

Larger core sizes and cross-sectional sizes are also available. The part numbers and specifications for the Veriflex CY LSZH cable may be different and you should refer to the datasheet for full information. CY cable with UL/CSA approval is also available upon request.

Our wider range of flexible control cables includes the unscreened YY cable for light mechanical stress applications and the SY cable with galvanised steel wire braid providing mechanical protection for medium tensile stresses. LiYY cable and the screened LiYCY cable are also available as are LSZH equivalents and a range of variable frequency drive VFD cables.
