RS PRO SY Cable

The SY cable from RS PRO is a reliable cable which combines the characteristics of a flexible mains cable with that of a steel wire armoured type, ideal for use in conditions where mechanical stresses are prevalent and where free movement is required. The SY type cable is often referred to as instrumentation cable, flexible or braided control cable.

These reliable steel wire braid cables work well within the machine tool industry. As interconnecting cables for measuring, controlling or regulation in control equipment for assembly and production lines, conveyors and for computer units. As well as where equipment or machinery may be subjected to vibration and or movement.

They are suitable for internal dry, damp or wet environments, including oil-water mixtures, they are not suitable for outdoor use and applications.

They are made from an inner grey PVC sheath, with an outer transparent PVC sheath, the Braid is galvanised steel with harmonised core colours. Due to the way these cables are made and the materials used, there is a high degree of flexibility, as well as the braid providing a degree of electrical screening.
