Due to the mechanical strength provided by their galvanised steel wire braid (GSWB), SY cables are widely used in industrial applications as interconnecting cables in control equipment or machines where they are subjected to medium mechanical stresses. They can be used in flexible installations, where free movement is required without tensile stresses and without forced guidance systems.
SY cables, also known as armoured flexible control cable or simply armoured flex, are strong and durable cables suitable for internal dry, damp or wet environments (including oil-water mixtures), however they are not suitable for outdoor applications.
