The use and specifications of various cables, the correct representation of cables

The wire and cable representation method is mainly composed of three parts: model, specification and standard number. The following is about the use and specifications of various cables and the correct representation of cables, welcome to learn

1. The meaning of the model

The models of wires and cables and power cables for electrical equipment are mainly composed of the following seven parts:

Some special wire and cable models have a derivation code at the end. The meaning of the letters in the most commonly used wire and cable models is described below:

Category, use code

A – Mounting wire B – Insulated wire C – Marine cable

K-control cable N-agricultural cable R-flex wire

U-Mining cable Y-Mobile cable JK-Insulated overhead cable

M – For coal mines

ZR-flame retardant NH-refractory ZA-A grade flame retardant

ZB-B grade flame retardant ZC-C grade flame retardant WD-low smoke halogen free type


Conductor code

T—copper wire (slightly) L-aluminum core

Insulation code

V—PVC plastic YJ—XLPE insulation



Cladding code

V-PVC sleeve Y-polyethylene

N-nylon sheath P-copper wire braided shield P2-copper strip shield

L-cotton yarn woven waxed gram Q-lead bag

Feature code

B – Flat type R – Soft

C – Heavy Q – Light

G-high voltage H-electric welding machine

S-twisted pair

 Armor layer codename

2—Double steel strip 3—Thin round steel wire

4—Thick round steel wire

Outer cladding code

1—Fiber layer 2—PVC sleeve

3—PE set

YC, YCW – heavy-duty rubber sheathed flexible cable

YZ, YZW – medium rubber sheathed flexible cable

YQ, YQW – light rubber sheathed flexible cable

YH—welder cable


The specification is composed of rated voltage, core number and nominal cross-section.

The general rated voltage of wires and control cables is 300/300V, 300/500V, 450/750V;

The rated voltage of medium and low voltage power cables is generally 0.6/1kv, 1.8/3kv, 3.6/6kv, 6/6(10)KV, 8.7/10(15)kv, 12/20kv, 18/20(30)kv, 21/35kv, 26/35kv, etc.

The number of cores of wire and cable is determined according to actual needs, the general power cable mainly has 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 cores, the wire is mainly 1~5 cores, and the control cable has 1~61 cores.

The nominal cross-section is an approximation of the cross-section of the guide body. In order to achieve a specified DC resistance, an integer value near a conductor cross-section is specified for easy memory and unification. The conductor cross-section uniformly specified in China is 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 10, 16, 25, 35, 50, 70, 95, 120, 150, 185, 240, 300, 400, 500, 630, 800, 1000, 1200, etc. It should be emphasized here that the nominal cross-section of the conductor is not the actual cross-section of the conductor, and many of the actual cross-sections of the conductor are smaller than the nominal cross-section, and several are larger than the nominal cross-section. In the actual production process, as long as the DC resistance of the conductor can meet the specified requirements, it can be said that the cross-section of the cable is up to standard.

Standard number

Most of the countries or industries we produce wires and cables now have clear standards, and the main purpose is of course to make the design and use unified.
