A YY cable is an instrumentation cable used in space saving installations, they are also known as YY Control Cable, Unshielded Control Cable, Unscreened Cable and Flexible Cable. The YY Cable has small cable diameters and is very flexible thanks to their short twisted conductor layers, although they are not recommended for use when the cable would be subject to repetitive flexing or twisting.
The YY cable is designed to be used as an interconnecting cable for signal and control equipment for measuring control or regulation. The YY cable is often used in the building and construction industries, rail/transport networks and automated process control systems.
The YY Cable is available in PVC and Low Smoke Zero Halogen types, with different levels of protection and screening allowing for installers to choose the right cable depending on the application.
The YY Cable works very well with light mechanical stresses, it is suited to most environments and if protected can be used in dry or damp conditions outside.
