Why don't all our ÖLFLEX® and UNITRONIC® cables have a CE mark?





The CE mark refers to the European Parliament's Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC and applies to cables and wires designed specifically for voltages between 50 and 1000 V (alternating current) or 75 and 1500 V (direct current) – i.e. voltage classes U0/U 100/100 V, 300/500 V, 450/750 V and 600/1000 V). Network data cables < 50 V as well as connecting cables exceeding 1000 V (e.g. voltage class Uo/U 1.8/3 kV or 3.6/6 kV) are not subject to the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC and therefore do not feature the CE mark on the outer sheath or packaging label.
