Industrial Cables Multi-Core Flexible Cables

209Y to BS 6500

Application and Description

209Y to BS 6500 cables are suitable for domestic premises, kitchen, office for light service or light portable apparatuses. With their special insulation and sheath compounds, 209Y to BS 6500 cables are adapted for apparatus in kitchen and heating and for use in zones with high temperatures (like lighting system apparatuses) without contact with warm parts and radiations. 209Y is equivalent to harmonized code H03V2V2-F.

Cable Construction

Bare copper fine wire conductor
Stranding to BS 6360 Class 5 or IEC 60228 Class 5
PVC core insulation TI3
