WHY RS PRO?

Solely an RS Pro range with no other brands offered, we offer a broad selection of colours & sizes the range. The range can be sold across all manufacturing industries so has broad market appeal.

Our range meets the specification of three separate standard-setting bodies – the British Standards Institute (BSi), the Underwriters Laboratories’ (UL) & the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) - hence making it tri-rated. This product's triple rating makes it highly sought-after around the world as the triple certification enables their use in the North American markets as well as the European ones, which can result in a leaner and more flexible equipment manufacturing process. These cables are referred to as H05V2-K and H07V2-K under their European harmonisation (HAR) designation code.

Everything You Need To Know About Fibre Optic Cables

Fibre optic cable is an advanced type of network cable, offering significantly improved performance in terms of bandwidth and data carrying than traditional metal conductor versions.

Optical fibre cabling is used to transfer information via pulses of light, which pass along one or more - indeed, anything up to a couple of hundred in some cases - transparent glass or plastic pipes. Each of these strands is little wider than an average hair, and will normally be surrounded by a further layer of cladding.
