H03VV-F 2182Y 2 Core Cable
A two core, flexible mains cable designed to H03VV-F/2182Y standards.
Features and Benefits
Flexible, 2 core cable with fine stranded copper conductors
Short circuit temperature: 160°C (max. 5 sn.)
Many household applications
For use where low mechanical stress exists
For us in covered, dry or humid areas
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.
This flexible power cable consists of cores made up of fine IEC 60228 Class 5 stranded copper conductors or wires. 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 Does H03VV-F Mean?
H03VV-F 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.
H03VV-F is the code for this harmonised cable which breaks down into the following:
H = Harmonised
03 = 300 V 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:
Excellent insulation properties
Stable, robust and durable
Where are These Cables Used?
These PVC flexible cables are designed for use in light duty 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 portable appliances in office and domestic environments such as table and standard lamps and small electronic appliances.
