SWA Cable 5 CORE - GENERAL INFORMATION
SWA Cable 5 Core is a type of electrical cable identified by its steel wire armour, which is inside the cable itself to protect the insulating layers beneath. It’s a type of mechanical protection, therefore it makes the cable suitable for outdoor use and laying underground.
Another use would be using Cable Cleats to attach the cable to walls etc.
SWA Cable 5 Core, as signified by its name, contains 5 cores (Brown, Black, Grey, Blue & green/yellow). The Green/Yellow core is an earth core, meaning that reliance on the steel wire providing an earth is not needed.
Not only does the steel wire armour provide mechanical protection, it also means that the cable can have higher pulling loads.
