This H05VV-F flexible cable also known as ’continues-flex’ cable is an electrical cable that is specially designed to cope with the tight bending and physical stress associated with moving applications, such as inside cable carriers.

What are the advantages of flexible cables?

Flex cable allows you to get greater bend, compared to other cables, and also straighten out with ease. The cable is formed in a cross section, normally with 2 or 3 cores inside a PVC outer sleeve coating.
