VDE 0812 standard cables are used in electronic control system connections, voice frequency transmission, and signal and communications in fixed applications.
Issued by Germany under their VDE national cable standards in 1988, VDE 0812 contains the specifications for equipment wires and stranded equipment wires used within telecoms and data processing systems.
The scope of VDE 0812 covers popular European alternatives to American style data and control cables with cores twisted into pairs to reduce cross talk. An overall tinned copper wire braid screen in the case of CY cables, further reduces electromagnetic interference.
Cables manufactured in accordance with VDE 0812 are flexible and suitable for installation in dry and humid rooms, and can be used as a termination and connection cable in the control, measuring and signal technology. These cables are not suitable for power supply or for direct burial. They are widely used in fixed installations or installation requiring occasional movement and flexibility. They are ideally suited for use in confined spaces.
This standard is issued by the DIN and VDE certification bodies.
