ÖLFLEX® - Single and Multicore Cable

ÖLFLEX® is the first branded cable in the world. In 1959, Oskar Lapp – the founder of LAPP developed the first flexible, industrially manufactured control cable with color coded wires. He and his wife Ursula Ida Lapp named the oil-resistant and flexible cables ÖLFLEX®. Today, ÖLFLEX® is a brand synonymous with power and control cable. Their single and multicore cables are the most widely used cables in the world.

LAPP as a leader in cable and connection technology has ensured that under ÖLFLEX® brand, we have a wide range of power and control cables to meet the requirement of various industries. 

Application Areas

- Industrial machinery, machine tools, plant, and equipment engineering

- Measurement, control, heating, and air conditioning systems

- Wind power and photovoltaic systems

- Public buildings, airports, and railway stations

- Medical technology, chemical industry, composting plants, and sewage works

- Food and beverage industry

- Power drive systems

- Robot applications

- Railway applications


- Suitable for fixed, flexible, and highly flexible (energy supply chains) applications

- Oil resistant, UV resistant, Flame retardant, Halogen-free, and Fire survival

- Fulfills the most demanding requirements for chemical and mechanical properties

- Suitable for weather resistance installations

ÖLFLEX® single and multicore cables have copper conductor and PVC insulation. However, we also provide outer jackets in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polyurethane (PUR) and Rubber based on application and environment. The cables are tested and certified with international licenses (like UL & CSA Approval).

ÖLFLEX® Single & Multicore Power and Control Cables are Classified as Below

- Halogen-free Cables

A product range with halogen-free core insulation and outer sheath made of a special halogen-free compound

- Rubber Cables

With special TPE outer sheath, these cables are most sustainable in harsh conditions like outstanding weather, good resistance to hot and cold water suited for underground installation. Ozone and UV resistance enables versatile use for indoor and outdoor applications.

- Crane Cables

Round and flat highly flexible reeled cables for movable control panels and consoles which are useful in low, medium, and high mechanical stress.

- Robust Cables

Cables for flexible and fixed installation for robust mechanical use. At room temperature, they have increased resistance against acids, caustic solutions and certain vegetable, animal, and mineral oils. This range of cables is ideally suited for use in agricultural, pharmaceutical, food & beverage industries.

- Servo Cables

Connecting cable between servo controller and motor for static and occasionally flexible use which are also EMC optimized design

- Heat Resistant Cables

ÖLFLEX®HEAT range cables are useful for application areas with high ambient temperature (from -190 deg. C to +650 deg. C) like thermal and heating elements.

- Highly Flexible Cables

In power chains or moving machine parts, highly flexible, suitable for use in measuring, controls and regulating circuits, assembly and production lines

- Solar Cables

Electron beam cross-linked flexible solar cables with optimized performance in water and cold weather, torsional load in wind turbines

- CY Cables

Screened PVC power & control cable - CY cable for protection against electrical interference. Suitable for use where a high degree of circuit integrity is required and where interference can prevent accurate signal transmission in low or medium voltage installations

- SY Cables

The steel braided PVC power & control cable - SY cable is for additional mechanical protection. Available in number-coded or color-coded core identification
