For use as a measuring, control and signal cable for the machine tool industry, plant construction, heating and air conditioning etc, and are particularly suitable between fixed and mobile equipment. The cable is well protected against electrical interference by the narrow weave tinned copper-wire braid screen, which ensures the undisturbed transmission of pulses and signals in electronic fields.
* Note: should not be used in any installations where the cable is subjected to repetitive flexing.

Current Carrying Capacity (amperes)
The above ratings are based on cable in Free air, in an ambient air temperature of 30°C.
For ambient air temperatures other than 30°C the following rating factors should be applied:
Ratings for cables up to and including 4mm2 are based on 60°C conductor operating temperature with 6mm2 and above based on 70°C operating temperature.
