Products / Control cables – for normed safety / H05VVC4V5-K


Control cables approved in accordance with HAR and UL.

H05VVC4V5-K are control cables in accordance with VDE 0281 Part 13 in a shielded version. They can be used in both dry and wet rooms but not outdoors.

H05VVC4V5-K cables may be permanently or flexibly laid with free movement and without compulsory ducting.

H05VVC4V5-K cables are preferred for use in machine engineering as connection and connecting cables for control, measurement and regulation purposes, on conveyor belts, in assembly areas of industrial robot technology and all related sectors. The range also meets the current safety guidelines for installation in washing systems, filling stations, breweries and similar applications.


The shielding made from tin-plated copper wire braiding is applied over an inner sheath. The effectiveness of the shield is represented by the coupling resistance and lies under 250 mOhm/m at 30 MHz.

H05VVC4V5-K cables have black cores with sequential numbering and a green-yellow earth conductor. With a relatively short twisted length that does not exceed the 15-fold diameter of the stranding layer, the cables are designed specifically for flexible, place-changing uses. They have no extended, power carrying core as a basic principle.

The outer sheath is made using a high-quality, special, oil-proof, mixture in accordance with VDE 0281 Part 1. In accordance with this, the outer sheath must withstand extreme conditions (7 x 24 hours at 90° C in an aggressive test oil IRM 902). This shows that use is possible in places where other sheath qualities are not able to handle the multi-faceted chemical influences over time.
