The galvanized steel wire braid with PVC bedding means it can easily cope under medium to high mechanical stress.

SY cables are the go-to for a wide range of industries. Building and construction as well as rail and transport infrastructure. It is also common in transmission, distribution and power networks and also automation and process control.

Use this specialised cable as interconnecting cable for measuring, controlling or regulating. A great example for this purpose is 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.

It’s best suited in dry or moist indoor environments but can still perform well when installed outdoors with adequate protection.

Where flexible control cable is required 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
