PVC sheath

What is Mains Cable?

A mains power cable connects an appliance to a mains electricity supply through the use of a wall socket or an extension lead which will then be plugged into a mains supply.

Cable Construction

This flexible power cable consists of 2 cores made up of IEC 60228 Class 5 stranded copper conductors or wires. These two cores are adjacent to one another which gives the cable its flat or ovular shape. Each individual core is surrounded by colour coded PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) insulation for easy identification of the wires. Both the cores are then surrounded by a final outer layer of PVC called a sheath or jacket.

What is BASEC Approval?

BASEC is an independent accredited certification body for the cable industry worldwide which provides an approvals service for cables. BASEC conducts rigorous, high-quality testing across a range of sectors that supply and install cable. These tests meet all the relevant standards and regulations ensuring the cables supplied are safe to use and of the highest quality.

What Does H03VVH2-F Mean?

H03VVH2-F cable (also known as 2192Y cable) is a type of harmonised cable which means it belongs to the Harmonised Reference System and conforms to the European Harmonisation Standard. This purpose of this standard is to improve standards and quality of cables across Europe to ensure the trade of a common standard product.

H03VVH2-F is the code for this harmonised cable which breaks down into the following:

• H = Harmonised
• 03 = 300 / 300 voltage rating
• V = PVC insulation
• V = PVC sheath
• H2 = Flat construction
• F = Flexible copper conductors

Benefits of PVC Insulated Mains Cable

The PVC insulation and sheath of this mains power cable has the following properties:

• Low cost
• Excellent insulation properties
• Flexible
• Stable, robust and durable
• Oil resistant

Where are These Cables Used?

These flat PVC flexible cables are designed for use in domestic and office electrical wiring applications and as general supply leads. This cable should be used on appliances that are indoors or in a covered, dry or humid area and is best used where the potential for mechanical stresses and mechanical damage is low. This cable should not be used with electrical cooking or heating apparatus. Applications include the following:

• Computer and office equipment
• Kitchen appliances such as toasters
• Household appliances such as vacuum cleaners and washing machines
• Radios and music centres
• Table lamps and floor lamps
• Hair dryers
