EXAMPLES:

FLRY 2,50 mm² verz
: FL = automotive wire
  R = with reduced insulation thickness
  Y = PVC insulation

  2,50 mm² verz = conductor cross section 2,50 mm² tinned

FL11Y 16,00mm² blk
: FL = automotive wire

  11Y = PUR sheath

  16,00 mm² blk = conductor cross section 16,00 mm² bare
FLRYY 3 x 0,25mm² blk
: FL = automotive wire
  R = with reduced insulation thickness
  Y = wire insulation PVC based

  Y = sheath insulation PVC based

  3 x 0,25 mm² blk = three single wires with cross conductor section 0,25 mm² each,    bare
