What is SY Cable 18 Core?

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

Contractors and electricians call this SY Cable various names such as Flexible or Braided Control Cable, SY Control Flex and Instrumentation Cable.

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?

If you instal control cable 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).
