**Image shown is 5 core SY cable** What is SY Cable? SY Cable is a flexible multi-core cable with class 5 flexible annealed plain copper conductors, PVC insulation and a transparent PVC sheath that generally meets the requirements of both BS6500 and VDE0250 standards. It also has the added benefit of a galvanised steel wire braid with PVC bedding, so it can easily cope with situations of medium to high mechanical stress. How is SY Cable constructed? Conductor : Class 5 flexible annealed plain copper conductors to BS EN 60228:2005 (previously BS6360), VDE0295, IEC 60228 Insulation : PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Type YI2 BEDDING : PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Type TM2 as specified in BS EN 50363-3:2005 BRAIDING : GSWB (Galvanised Steel Wire Braid) Sheath : PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Type TM2 as specified in BS EN 50363-3:2005 By what other names is SY Cable known? SY Cable is also known as Flexible or Braided Control Cable, SY Control Flex and Instrumentation Cable. Which industries use SY Cable? The flexible SY Cable is supplied to a wide number of industries including building and construction (often in airports), rail and transport infrastructure, transmission, distribution and power networks as well as automation and process control. SY Cable is used as interconnecting cable for measuring, controlling or regulation in signal and control equipment. This braided control cable is found frequently on assembly and production lines, conveyors, in computer units and machine tool manufacture. The SY Cable’s flexible and versatile design makes it a great choice for linking fixed and mobile equipment – as well as projects where fixed installations are required. With the right protection (such as keeping it out of direct sunlight), SY Cable is useful for outdoor installations. The SY Cable is most suitable, however, for work in dry or moist indoor environments. Uses for the clear sheath? The clear sheath means the SY Cable can be inspected with ease for signs of deterioration, damage or corrosion. Is a Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LS0H) SY Cable available? Where control cable is to be located in public areas, a LS0H version of the SY Cable is often made to order – when exposed to fire it emits low levels of smoke and non-toxic levels of halogen gas (typically under 0.5% HCl emission).
