H07RN-F Cable BS7919

H07RNF Cable

What is H07RNF Cable?
H07RNF is a rubber flexible power cable specifically designed to operate in tough weather conditions and under high mechanical and thermal stresses. The hard-wearing H07RNF Cable is made up of class 5 flexible plain copper conductors, EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber) insulation and a black PCP (Polychloroprene) sheath. With its oil, grease and water resistant sheath, H07RNF Cable is suitable for use in a whole range of different applications — including handling equipment, mobile power supplies and stage and audio visual equipment.

How is H07RNF Cable constructed?

H07RNF Cable
1 Conductor Class 5 flexible plain copper to BS EN 60228:2005 (previously BS6360)
2 Insulation EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber) Type EI4 to BS7655
3 Sheath PCP (Polychloroprene) Type EM2 to BS7655

By what other names is H07RNF known?
H07RN-F Cable is also referred to as rubber cable, trailing cable, rubber flexible cable and power cable. There are a variety of spellings associated with the H07RN-F Cable and, although H07RN-F is the correct version, it is common to see H07RNF, HO7RNF and H07 used.

H07RNF Cable meets the requirements of which British Standard?
H07RN-F Cable is included in tables 14 and 15 of BS7919. This British Standard looks at the construction, dimensions and properties of insulated flexible cables — with voltage ratings up to and including 450V/750V — for use in appliances and equipment intended for industrial or similar environments. Table 14 covers single core, circular twin, 3-core, 4-core and 5-core heavy-duty rubber insulated, PCP or equivalent synthetic elastomer sheathed flexible H07RN-F cable. Table 15 specifies requirements for 6-core, 12-core, 18-core, 24-core and 36-core H07RN-F Cables.  

Which industries use H07RNF Cable?
H07RN-F Cable is an industrial strength cable found everywhere from water treatment plants and renewable energy systems to transmission, distribution and power networks, airports and marine and defence, telecommunication, building and construction, automation and process control industries. Robust and flexible, H07RN-F Cable is also a popular choice with stage and events companies — especially those looking to supply temporary power to audio-visual and lighting systems both indoors and outdoors.

What does H07RNF stand for?
H07RN-F is a harmonised code — created by CENELEC (the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardisation) to provide a standardised way of talking about specific cables. The H means the H07RN-F Cable conforms with harmonised standards; the 07 identifies the cable’s voltage rating as 450/750V; the R refers to the EPR insulation; the N relates to its PCP sheath and the –F highlights the fact H07RN-F Cable has flexible copper conductors.
