5 core cable means a type of multi-core electrical cable that contains five distinct conductors, each of which is usually color-coded for easy identification. 5 core low voltage cable is normally made of the highly conductive material copper and insulated with PVC for power distribution, lighting, and control, etc. in residential, commercial, and industrial projects. The 5 core wire is designed to provide versatility and reliability for electrical connections and can carry multiple signals or power streams simultaneously. Common 5 core cable sizes are 5 core 2.5 mm cable, 4mm 5 core flex cable, and 5 core 6mm cable.

5 Core Cable Specification:

  • Conductor: Plain annealed copper Class 2
  • Sheath Color: Black
  • Temperature Range: Operating temperatures up to 90°C and short-circuit temperatures up to 250°C.
  • Insulation: PVC
  • Sheath: PVC
  • Voltage: 0.6/1KV

FAQs About 5 Core Cable

5 core cables are used for various electrical and connectivity applications, their specific application and properties can vary according to the materials used and construction.. Here are some common uses and specifications of 5 core electrical cables:

  • Electrical Wiring: 5-core cables are commonly used for electrical wiring in residential and commercial settings to connect electrical devices, lighting systems, control systems, and other electrical components requiring multiple circuits or signal transmissions.
  • Low Voltage devices: 5-core cable can be used to connect LED strips, gate openers, and other low voltage electrical devices, providing safe and reliable power transmission for these devices.
  • Data Transmission: In some cases, 5-core cables may be used for data transmission. For example, 5-core Cat6 Ethernet cable is a type of twisted pair cable designed for high-performance internet connectivity and can support up to 550 MHz bandwidth. 
  • Power Supply: Larger variants of 5-core cables, such as the 6mm and 120mm 5-core armored cables, are commonly used as main power supplies to provide mains voltage electricity to various devices and powered networks.

To need to know the price of a 5 core copper cable, We would need specific details about the cable, such as size and length. We will make price list for 5 core cable price per meter for your reference:

5 core cable 1mm USD 0.75 per meter

5 core cable 4mm USD 2.6 per meter

The colour code for a 5 core cable can vary depending on the country and the standard being followed. However, a common arrangement following European and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards is:

  • Brown, Black, and Grey Wires: These are typically used to signify the three ‘live’ or ‘hot’ wires, also known as phases, in a three-phase electrical system. The specific order can vary, but each one carries an AC voltage waveform that is offset in time from the others to allow for smooth and constant overall power delivery.
  • Blue Wire: often the ‘neutral’ wire. In a balanced three-phase system, the sum of the voltages in the three live wires will be zero, and the neutral wire carries very little current. However, if there is an imbalance, the neutral wire will carry the excess current.
  • Green/Yellow Wire: ‘earth’ or ‘ground’ wire. This wire is a safety feature designed to prevent electrical shock by providing a path for electrical energy to ground in the event of a fault.
