Defence Standard Cable



Defence Standard Cable

Cable Application

Popular applications include avionic control systems, computers, data processing and military vehicles, and signalling. Defence standard cable, although originally for defence/military use, is now widely used in industry as it is compact, has a range of sizes for most applications and a high working voltage.
