H05RR-F or H05RN-F light-mid duty rubber flex

H05RR-F or H05RN-F light-medium duty rubber flexible cable is designed for the connection of electrical appliances. Also referred to as HO5RR-F & HO5RN-F. 

HO5RR-F = Lightweight cable designed to withstand only light mechanical stress. Suitable for internal applications in dry and damp areas. Commonly used to connect appliances in households,
kitchens & offices or for light utilities. Not for industrial/commercial or agricultural usage.

HO5RN-F = Medium duty cable designed to withstand light to medium mechanical stress. Suitable for internal use in damp or dry areas, can also be used for temporary outdoor applications. Commonly connected to horticulture or workshop tools. Can also be used for fixed installation in furniture, decorative coverings, wall partitions and pre-fabricated building parts.
