About PVC Insulated Wiring Cables CU-PVC
PVC Insulated Wiring Cables CU-PVC
The single core PVC insulated non-sheathed cables, available in size range 1.5 mm2 to 630mm2 and rated 450/750V. These cables can be considered to have a voltage rating up to 1000V a.c. when installed in fixed protected installations e.g. Lighting fittings and inside appliances, switchgear and control gear.
The above wiring cables conform to BS 6004 specification for “PVC insulated cables (non-armoured) for electric power and lighting”.
The insulation of standard wiring cables is PVC grade Type TI 1 of BS 7655 (formerly BS 6746) suitable for a maximum continuous conductor operating temperature of 70°C. Where specifically required, wiring cables can be offered with heat resistant PVC insulation, Type TI 3 (90°C).
- Mainly used in the construction sector for buildings including lighting connections, switch wiring and installation in ducts.
- The cables also generally satisfy the International Specification IEC 60227 and German Standards VDE 0281 for “PVC insulated cables and cords with rated voltage not exceeding 750V”.
