RS PRO CY Control 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, they 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 black with white numbers. Due to the way these cables are made and the materials used, there is a high degree of flexibility.

Features and Benefits

· Ideal for space saving installations
· Ideal for indoor use where mechanical stresses are present
· Tinned copper wire braid screen
· Resistance to oil/water mixes when indoors
· Flexible cable with copper conductors
· CY type cable has a grey PVC outer sheath
· White numbers on the outer sheath
· Operating temperatures of -40 to +80 °C
· These screened flexible multi-core cables have a voltage rating of 300/500V

Standards

This control cable confirms to ECD 73/23/EEC (low voltage directive).

Note

CY control cables are not suitable for fixed wiring applications requiring compliance with the requirements set out in BS7671.
