Things to know about single-core cable

Flex single-core cable or rigid single-core cable? The characteristics of a flex single-core cable.

Single-core cables are used for internal wiring of devices or control cabinets. You can categorise them into flexible and rigid single-core cables. Basically, the following applies: Rigid single-core cables have one core, are solid and have been designed for fixed routing, while flexible finely stranded single-core cables are intended for moveable laying.
Rigid single-core cables can only be used in fixed, i.e., stationary electric installations. They are not suitable for moveable laying because the cables with rigid wires would break. That makes them well suited for building installations. Rigid single-core cables can be routed through pipes, cable ducts, cable trays and wire trays. Common cross-section values are 1.5mm² and 2.5mm². Flex cables with a single core, on the other hand, are suitable for any portable moveable electric installation, such as switch cabinets or distributors. Flex cables are most commonly used in cross-sections of 10mm² or 16mm².
