1. What is H07RN-F Cable?

When it comes to making a selection for rubber cables, there is a wide variety to choose from. No matter what type of cable you choose, make sure that the cable conforms to CENELEC (European Committee for Electro-technical Standardization) specifications. This article will serve to you as a buying guide of one such cable, H07RN-F Cable.

H07RN-F Meaning

A heavy-duty rubber flexible cable, the H07RN-F cable has a polychloroprene (PCP) outer sheath. You can make use of it outdoors or indoors as well as in damp to wet conditions for electrical power supply.

However, it best suits for use in heavy-duty equipment and for tasks that require enduring greater levels of stress that include mechanical, thermal, and chemical stresses.

The design of H07RN-F cable aims to provide you with remarkable flexibility. Not only this, the cables have the sheer capability to withstand adverse conditions.

Whether it is extreme weather, greases/oils, thermal or even mechanical strains. However, the mechanical stress exerted on the cables should be of medium capacity.

The name H07RN-F is a code based on the CENELEC standards, that also defines the meaning of the cable/electrical lead in detail.

  • The H stands for conformity to the harmonized CENELEC standards
  • The number 07 reflects the voltage rating these cables best fit for, that is, 450/750V
  • R stands for the EPR insulation used in these cables
  • N stands for the PCP (polychloroprene) outer sheath
  • F stands for the flexible copper conductor it is made of

Often the H07RN-F is misspelled with “HO7RN-F”, but the real name uses 07, not O7.


You can associate H07RN-F rubber cables with a wide range of applications. Extensive use of these cables can be seen in industrial equipment and power supply devices according to HD 516/VDE 0298-300.

Along with that, H07RN-F cables are put to use in numerous electric tools that include transportable motors, generators drills, and circular saws.

Moreover, you will see that these cables commonly used in mobile power supplies, worksites, stage, and audiovisual equipment. Other medium-stressed mechanical machines also make avid use of H07RN-F cables according to HD 516/VDE 0298-300.

Besides machinery, you can use these cables in residential barracks and temporary buildings or installations. You can also use these cables with hand lamps, heating plates, and boilers as they are easy to install

Here is a quick checklist of some common applications.

  • Work sites like the construction industry
  • Handling equipment
  • Audio as well as stage visual equipment
  • Mobile power generators
  • Dams, ports, and other similar structures where a durable cable is required
  • Transformers
  • Electrical equipment like grinders, welders, etc.


Manufacturers of H07RN-F cables aim to not only provide you with purpose, but they also ensure that the users have full exposure to safety and protection. No rubber cable is completely safe and secure to use unless it meets the typical rubber cable standards as defined below.

  • BS7919

Cables made in accordance with BS7919 are generally used in environments that require both, flexibility as well as resistance to mechanical stresses. In the case of ordinary duty applications, the voltage rating should be 300/500V.

However, if you are interested in heavy duty installations, then the voltage ratings should be of 450/750V.
This primarily includes equipment connections such as lighting and power generators.

It is important to note that in 2012 this standard was withdrawn, but it is still widely used in the cable industry.

  • IEC 60332-1-2:2004

This set of requirements and test methods aim to make sure that H07RN-F cables are flame retardant.

It tests on optical and electrical fibers under fire conditions to check if the cables work to propagate fire.

This is done to make sure that the rubber cables are safe to use and will not cause any harm to life.
IEC 60332-1-2:2004 standard specifies the use of a 1 kW pre-mixed flame for general use.

However, the procedure specified may not suit the testing of single, small insulated H07RN-F cables or conductors of less than 0.5 mm² total cross-section. This is because the conductor will melt even before the test has been performed.

  • BS EN 60811-2-1

BS EN 60811-2-1 is another British standard that applies on H07RN-F cables while working on the insulation and sheathing materials of these cables.

It is specific to elastomeric compounds to test their oil-immersion resistance. These standards make sure that the H07RN-F cables remain durable, flame retardant and resistant against harsh conditions.

2. H07RN-F Features

H07RN-F cable is made of following parts and exhibits listed features:
Conductor: A bare class 5 flexible copper wire according to BS EN 60228:2005 standard (previously BS6360). Copper (Cu) is commonly used in electrical cables as it is the best conductor for electricity (other than silver that is expensive).

Insulation: The core insulation is made of EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber) Type EI4 according to BS7655 standard. The EPR is a type of synthetic elastomer resembling EPDM rubber.

EPR is also one of the most commonly used insulation in electrical cables. You can also find EPR insulation in flexible rubber products like hoses. The reason why EPR is used in the H07RN-F cables is its physical and chemical properties.

The insulation offers great resistant against weather, ozone, oxidation, and heat. As it is a non-polar compound, it is also an electrical resistor and remains insoluble in both aprotic and protic polar solvents. All these properties make Ethylene Propylene Rubber excellent insulation for H07RN-F cables.

Sheath: The outer sheath is made of PCP (Polychloroprene) Type EM2 in accordance with BS7655 standard. It is also called Neoprene sheath. The PCP is excellent for abrasion resistance and also adds durability and resistance against chemicals and oils.

Sheath Colour: Black in color
Voltage Rating: 450/750V
Temperature Rating: -30°C to +60°C (85°C max) is the conductor operating temperature. However, the maximum temperature also varies based on use. For example, in mobile installations, the maximum operating temperature is around 60°C but in short-circuit, it is around 200°C

Minimum Bending Radius: Up to 25 mm 2: 6 x overall diameter when the H07RN-F cable is fixed and above 25 mm 2: 8 x overall diameter when the cable is flexed.

Terminations: The two most common types used are set-screw and crimp.

Sizes: The size of H07RN-F cables is referred to their cross-sectional areas, also known as CSA. These range from 1.5mm square to 630mm square. The size of the cable is proportional to the current required. Some of the most common sizes used in the industry are H07RN-F 120mm and H07RN-F 240mm.

Other Features: Flame Retardant by IEC 60332-1-2:2004 standards and Oil Resistant by BS EN 60811-2-1.

4. What is the difference between H07RN-F and H05RN-F?

Both these cables cater to different usages and purpose, but they are similar when it comes to CENELEC specifications. Along with this, both cables are also flame retardant, so they do not propagate fire.

H07RN-F and H05RN-F cables are also oil resistant. Despite having so much in common these two cables tend to have a lot of differences as well.

Starting with the H07RN-F cable which is a flexible chloroprene cable mostly used for heavy-duty equipment. On the other hand, H05RN-F cables have a black neoprene jacketed multi-colored conductor. These cables work well for medium duty.

H07RN-F is a 450/750V cable, while the H05RN-F is a 300/500V cable. The H05RN-F also have smaller size and conductor compared to H07RN-F cables.

Another aspect of difference is that H07RN-F cables can withstand moderate mechanical stress. Whereas, the H05RN-F cables can best function under light mechanical stress.

Moreover, both the cables vary widely in usage and application. Handling heavy industrial equipment mainly requires H07RN-F cables. But if we talk about H05RN-F cables, then they are best when made use of in kitchens, households, and offices.
