    Hello all

    I need an insulated multi stranded copper conductor which can carry 8-9 Amp current, should be screened, having an insulation which can withstand working voltage of 1.5KVrms atlleast. Moreover insulation should be flexability as this cable is needed to be wind/unwind regularly.

    As for as current carrying capacity is concerned, i think AWG11/12 will be suitable for me. The problem i face is finding a combination of individually screened, flexibility as well as high working voltage i.e. 1.5 KVrms.

    Can any one kindly suggest any solution especially regarding type of insulation suitable (for 1.5KVrms and flexible) as well as screening?


    Note:The most common insulation i found during search is PVC but its flexibility/Voltage rating is in question.

    There are many coaxial cables eg RG 213 that have voltage ratings in the order of your requirements

    but flexibility, shielded and hi voltage ratings will be a tough order.
    there are some VERY flexible coaxial cables but they are not cheap US$50 and more per metre
