Issue 10 of the FS Cables cabling guide ‘The Little Red Book’ is the ideal companion for any buyer responsible for the sourcing or specification of electrical cable.

Featuring 176 pages in a handy A5 size, ‘The Little Red Book’ lists technical data and images for thousands of cables, as well as technical tables for reference.

Cables listed include data, coax and bus, signal & control, telephone and audio cables, high temperature including silicones and PTFE, rubber & crane, spiral cables and a section on fire & security cables.

A range of tools make an appearance for the first time, including cable cutters, strippers and crimpers, tools for coaxial and structured wiring.

Each page features a clear key indicating the variety of sheathing options available over the standard PVC, such as Low Smoke Halogen Free, duct grade or armoured SWA.

As before, selected tables from the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations are included for reference, as are guides to British, European and American colour codes.

Also featured are AWG to Metric conversion charts, stranding charts and a handy Belden cross reference table.

All stock items are delivered next working-day as standard, free on orders over £100. Many cables can also be ‘cut to length’, reducing both your costs and wastage.

In the unlikely event the cable you require isn’t listed, talk to us about our custom manufacture service, where cables can be manufactured or altered to meet your specification, often with low lead times and MOQs.
