Veriflex SY Cable – YSLYSY and HSLHSH Control Cable

Due to the mechanical strength provided by their galvanised steel wire braid (GSWB), SY cables, including the Veriflex SY PVC cable, are widely used in industrial applications as interconnecting cables in control equipment or machines where they are subjected to medium mechanical stresses. These flexible instrumentation cables can be used in installations where free movement is required without tensile stresses and without forced guidance systems.

SY cables, also known as armoured flexible control cable, shielded flex, or simply armoured flex, are strong and durable cables suitable for internal dry, damp or wet environments (including oil-water mixtures), and can be used outdoors when protected against direct sunlight. They are also referred to by their constructional reference: YSLYSY cables for the PVC sheathed variation.
