Tri-rated Cable

Tri-rated cables meet the requirement of three international standards: BS6231, UL (underwrites Laboratories) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association). Trirated cable has a maximum operating temperature of 90 °C for continuous use, and 105 °C for a specific length of time. Tri rated cables are very popular in switchgear applications, thanks to Cass 5 flexibility, high temperature rating and flame retardant properties.
