CY-600 black PVC 1kV screened control cable

CY-600 black 1kV control cable has a tinned copper wire braid to ensure a high degree of shielding for interference-free transmission of signals and pulses. 

These tough, flexible and versatile CY-600 cables are designed for flexible measuring and control purposes in tool machinery, conveyor belts and production lines etc. They have a higher voltage rating than standard control cables. 

Suitable for internal or external applications in dry, moist or wet areas. Not recommended for direct burial or underwater installation. 

If protection against electrical interference is not required please see our range of YY control cables, If protection against mechanical damage is required please see our range of SY armoured control cables.
