YWY, AYFY, AYY, AYCY, A2XCY Cables Meanings

Its quit confusing sometimes to read Nomenclature of cables such as YWY or AYFY.
Below is Details of that Nomenclature which will help to read about cables nomenclatures and will ease out for Technical specifications of cables.


A = Appearing as a first letter denotes Aluminium Conductor.

Y = TROPODUR means PVC Insulation if appears any where in configuration but not at last if Y is written at last then it means TROPODUR Sheath.

2X = TROPOTHEN-X (Cross-linked Polyethylene) Insulation.

W = Round Steel Wire Armouring.

WW = Double Round Steel Wire Armouring.

F = Formed Steel Wire (Strip) Armouring.

FF = Double Formed Steel Wire (Strip) Armouring.

C = Metallic Screening (Usually of Copper).

CE = Metallic Screening (usually of Copper) over each individual core.

Gb = Holding Helix Tape (of Steel)

Wa = Aluminium Round Wire & Aluminium Formed Wire (Strip) Fa Armouring

b) Type Designations :

AYY Aluminium Conductor, TROPODUR Insulated, TROPODUR Outer Sheathed Heavy Duty 
Cables.

AYWY Aluminium Conductor, TROPODUR Insulated, Galvanised Round Steel Wire Armoured and TROPODUR Outer Sheathed Heavy Duty Cables.

AYFY Aluminium Conductor, TROPODUR Insulated, Galvanised Flat Steel Wire (Strip) Armoured and TROPODUR Outer Sheathed Heavy Duty Cable.

AYCY Aluminium Conductor, TROPODUR Insulated, Metallic Screened and TROPODUR Outer Sheathed Heavy Duty Cable.

A2XCY Aluminium Conductor, TROPOTHEN-X Insulated, Metallic Screened and TROPODUR Outer Sheathed Heavy Duty Cable.

AYCEFY Aluminium Conductor, TROPODUR Insulated, individual core metallic screened, Flat steel Wire (strip) Armoured and TROPODUR Outer Sheathed Heavy duty Cable.

A2XCEFY Aluminium Conductor, TROPOTHEN-X Insulated, individual cores metallic screened, Flat Steel Wire (Strip) Armoured and TROPODUR Outer Sheathed Heavy Duty Cable.

NOTE : If the first letter A is dropped in the above designations (i.e. YY, YWY, YFY etc.) they will denote corresponding types with Copper Conductors.
