Tri Rated BS6231 Flexible PVC Cable

  • Description
  • Specification
  • Part Options

Tri-rated cables, also known as panel wiring cables, are widely used for fixed internal wiring in instrument panels and switchgear due to their high temperature and flame retardant properties. These cables feature flexible plain annealed copper conductors and a circular high-temperature PVC outer sheath, making them ideal for applications in motor starters, power switchgear, and instrumentation panels. Additionally, they are commonly employed as internal connectors in rectifier equipment and controllers.
