The flexible hook up cable can be used for reliable cable connections in a neat and well-organised layout. By using this RS PRO high-quality range of single-core equipment cables, the installation wires can be easily colour coded by using the different sheath colours available in the range, dependant on the installation terminals being used. In addition to this, the robust and carefully manufactured copper conductor ensures optimum reliability and performance, regardless of the application the wires are being used for.

Features and Benefits:

  • This RS PRO single core cable has a 32/0.2 mm core strand with total cable length options of 100 mm or 500 mm

  • Ideal for low voltage multi-purpose cable installations

  • It is a flexible cable with a durable PVC protective sheath and copper conductors, available in multiple colours, ideal for colour-coding cable installations

  • The cable offers good insulation due to the PVC insulation material and installation is easy and efficient thanks to the flexible layout of the cable

  • Operating temperature: -20 °C to +85 °C

  • Conductor resistance (20℃ Ω/km): 19.1 Ω/km

  • Voltage Rating: 1500 V AC max.

  • Overall diameter: 2.65 mm max. (with insulation)


Equipment wire or hook up wire can be used for a wide variety of low voltage and current applications. These can range from domestic household appliances, industrial equipment and factory machine. Due to the reliability of the copper conductors and PVC sheath, these types of wires are usually the preferred choice with any internal wiring system. As an example, these are some common places you would find equipment wire:

  • Circuit boards

  • Computer internals

  • Mobile phones and other battery-operated devices

  • Vehicle lights
