What kind of protection do these cables have?

With wire protection a high priority, these screened cables can ensure complete confidence. Each cable is fully insulated within a black PVC sheath, fully protecting it from the elements. Within the PVC cover itself, the multicores are protected by a tinned copper braid, ensuring that any damage to the cable from everyday activities will be non existent.

Who uses multi-core cable?

Due to the efficient conducting capabilities copper presents, multicore cable has a huge variety of uses. The entertainment industry are common users of multicore cable for audio purposes. Commonly named within that application as a 'snake cable', mixers, speakers and other audio equipment can essentially have one cable linked up to the device. As opposed to having multiple wires running across the floor. Significantly reducing the possibilities of tripping hazards and other accidents.

What is multicore industrial cable?

Multicore cable is a type of electrical cable which includes more cores than a standard power or coaxial cable. They can be supplied in various lengths and the number of cores can vary significantly. Commonly used within industrial or entertainment applications, they can keep otherwise messy and disorganised cable connections tidy. The name is self descriptive, in the sense that they would be able to house cores from various types of electrical cable into one sheath, such as coaxial and power. Due to the layout and coloured cores from these RS Pro PVC cables, installation is easy and efficient.

Warning

Please be aware, although these cables are electrical, they are not to be regarded as power cables, or cables for the direct connection of equipment to mains power supplies.
