The IET has advised that this
cable is suitable only for 110 V
applications. It is unclear why
this should be the case – the
standard clearly indicates
suitability for 300/500 V duty and
manufacturers certify their
products for this voltage range.
Similarly, cables to BS 6500 are
rated at 300 V so are suitable
for 230 V applications.
Do we have a history of
problems with this type of cable?
