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 electrical power cable consists cores made up of fine stranded copper conductors or wires. Each individual core is surrounded by colour coded PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) insulation for easy identification of the wires. All 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 H05VV-F Mean?


H05VV-F mains power cable (also known as 318-Y 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 across Europe to ensure the trade of common standard product.


H05VV-F is the code for this harmonised power cable which breaks down into the following:


• H = Harmonised
• 05 = 300V / 500V voltage rating
• V = PVC insulation
• V = PVC sheath
• 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?


PVC insulated mains cables are used for medium duty wiring in domestic, kitchen and office premises. This electrical mains cable should be used for wiring 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 can only be used with cooking and heating equipment if the cable does not come into direct contact with the hot parts of the equipment or with any other heat source. Applications include washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators, spin dryers, computer and office equipment.
