Tri-Rated Cable



Tri Rated Cable

Tri Rated Cable is a high temperature cable principally designed for use in industrial electrical installations of control panels, instrumentation panels, motor starters and controllers and more. We hold good stocks of the different colours of tri rated cable and core sizes up to 240mm2.

CSE Cables offer a range of PVC insulated flexible panel wires which are manufactured and recognised / certified as appropriate to the following standards:

Underwriters Laboratories (UL):

Recognised to Style 1015, 1028, 1283 or 1284 (depending on wire size)

Rated: 105°C in air

60°C in oil

600V
Canadian Standards Association (CSA):
Certified to Type TEW 105°C
British Standard: Manufactured to BS6231 Type CK

Applications include the wiring of switch, control metering, relay and instrument panels of

power switchgear as well as internal connections in rectifier equipment and in motor starters and controllers.

The UL and CSA certification on these wires enable their use in equipment destined for the North American market as well as the European market. This gives the benefit of simple design and manufacturing and less stockholding, compared to the alternative of using wires manufactured to the separate standards.

Tri Rated Cable is available in the following colours:

Black, blue, light blue, dark blue, brown, green, grey, orange, pink, red, violet, white, yellow and green/yellow.

Standard reels are available though other lengths can be supplied on request. Sizes up to and including 6mm2 can be supplied in cardboard barrels. All reels and barrels carry UL and CSA certification labels.

We are also able to supply bespoke colours or striped sheaths for individual requirements though these need to be individually manufactured with a lead time. View our blog posts on some tri-rated cable projects we have worked on with customers around the world.
