RS PRO SY Control Cable

The SY control cables from RS PRO are number coded and are reliable connecting cables which combine the characteristics of a flexible mains cable with that of a steel wire armoured type, ideal for use in conditions where mechanical stresses are prevalent and where free movement is required. The SY type cable is often referred to as instrumentation cable, flexible or braided control cable.

These reliable steel wire braid 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 inner grey PVC sheath, with an outer transparent PVC sheath, the braid is galvanised steel 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 indoor use where mechanical stresses are present
· Galvanised steel braided multi core cable, strong and durable
· SY type cable has a clear PVC transparent outer sheath
· White numbers on the outer sheath
· Inner sheath made from grey PVC
· Mechanical protection due to galvanised steel wire braid
· Flexible cable with copper conductors
· Operating temperatures for flexible use -5 to +70 °C
· Operating temperatures for fixed installation -40 to +80 °C
· Keep out of direct sunlight and observe temperature range if using outdoors

Standards

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

Type SY

Note

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