RS PRO Tri-Rated 2.5mm Cable 100m

Our RS Pro tri-rated cable has been designed to be used within electrical equipment, most commonly for wiring items that include power switchgear. The cable is also great for internal connections within rectifier equipment, motor starters, and controllers. Our RS PRO tri-rated cable range features highly durable wires that are made with flexible copper and are encased with a HR PVC (heat resistant polyvinyl chloride) insulation. The high maximum operating temperature of 105°C allows them to be used with a wide variety of applications such as electrical cabinets. RS PRO tri-rated cables are available in a variety of different coloured HR PVC sheaths including blue, black, red, brown, green, yellow and many more, to accommodate for a number of applications.

RS PRO 2.5mm cross sectional area tri-rated cables feature a maximum current rating (Amperes) of 30A.

What is a tri-rated cable?

Tri-rated cable is a type of single core insulated electrical cable (with Class 5 flexibility as rated by British Standard BS EN 60228:2005). Tri-rated cable is also known as BS6231, panel wire or switchgear cable. It is made with flexible plain annealed copper that is covered with an HR PVC (heat resistant polyvinyl chloride) insulation. The term tri-rated refers to meeting the specifications of three separate standards. These standards are BSI, (The British Standards Institute) UL, (Underwriters Laboratories) and CSA (Canadian Standards Associations).

What applications is Tri Rated cable used in?

These tri-rated switchgear cables are commonly used in power switchgear applications but they can be used in everyday electrical installations with the final result of overall higher quality.

• Electrical cabinets
• Switch control in power switchgear
• Relay and instrumentation panels of power switchgear
• Internal connectors in rectifier equipment
• Motor starters and controllers
• Small electrical devices
• Industrial electrical installations
• Panel building

Product information

These cables are intended for use in the wiring of switch, control, metering, relay and instrument panels of power switchgear, and for such purposes as internal connections in rectifier equipment and its motor starters and controllers. They are intended for use at alternating voltages not exceeded 600 V to earth, and direct voltages not exceeded 1000V to earth. When installed in the equipment they are suitable for wiring circuits for which the prescribed alternating test voltage does not exceed 4kV r.m.s for 1 minute.
