European Comms Cables

These European Communications Cables - J-Y(St)Y (PVC), J-H(st)H (flame Retardant Non-Corrosive LSZH) and JE-H(st)H FE180-E30 (LSZH fire performance) Screened Telephone Cables - are for use in telecommunications systems with a voltage rating of 300V for the analogue and digital transmission of data and signals. These telephone cables are manufactured in accordance with Standard VDE 0815, making them particularly suitable for use by German telecoms installers and their counterparts across many parts of Europe.

The cables is suitable for fixed indoor installations within dry and damp premises, under or on plaster but not for laying in ground or in water.

Insulation Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) according to VDE 0207
Screen Duplex tape and drain wire
Outersheath PVC according to VDE 0207

The J-Y(ST)Y cable has a screen of Duplex tape and drain wire to reduce electrostatic interference both to and from the cable. The larger conductor sizes than the British CW1308 results in lower losses and therefore superior performance.
