PUR EF CY screened high-flex control cable is designed for use in free movement without tensile stress and in drag-chains etc. Overall braid screening provides protection against electronic interference.
These tough highly flexible PUR EF CY cables work well in control applications where the cable is constantly moving, particularily in arduous environments. The PUR sheath provides increased mechanical and chemical resistance when compared to standard PVC.
Suitable for installation indoors or outdoors, in dry, moist or wet areas and where exposed to harsh mechanical strain or dragged over sharp/rough surfaces.
Highly flexible control cables are built along the same lines as YY/CY control cables but with finer stranded conductors. If protection against electrical interference is not required please see our range of EF YY cables.
