RS PRO CY Cable

The CY control cables from RS PRO are number coded and are reliable connecting cables which combine the characteristics of a flexible mains cable coupled with saving space due to the small cable diameters suitable for both fixed and flexible installations.

CY cables are used in environments where interference free transmission is needed, the different parts of the cable work together to protect the cable for any external electromagnetic influences as well as any mechanical stresses. CY cables can also be referred to as screened flexible cable.

These reliable cables work well within the machine tool industry. As interconnecting cables for measuring, controlling or regulation in control equipment for assembly and production lines, conveyors and for computer units. As well as where equipment or machinery may be subjected to vibration and or movement.

They are suitable for internal dry, damp or wet room environments, these CY cables are resistant to certain oils, acids and caustic solutions at room temperature. They may only be installed outdoors with UV-protection and by observing the temperature range.

They are made from an outer grey PVC sheath, with a multi-core flex, the braid screen is tinned copper and the cores are different colours depending on the number of cores. The numbers are black and are 3 times every metre. Due to the way these cables are made and the materials used, there is a high degree of flexibility.
