VCTF Japanese and Taiwanese cable

Cable used to power products being sent to Japan or Taiwan must be the correct type and carry the right approvals.  The standard cable for use in Japan and Taiwan is VCTF, another metric cable similar to H05VV-F.  HVCTF is a high temperature version rated to 75°C instead of 60°C, and VCTF-K is oval instead of round and used on unearthed two core flexes. 

The manufacturing standard for these pvc cables is JIS C 3306, which includes VFF and HVFF: these are all rated up to 300V.  The heavier duty 600V versions (VCT, HVCT etc) are manufactured to JIS C 3312. 

Rubber cables (HHFF, NNFF) are under JIS C 3301 for 300V and JIS C 3327 for 600V (PNCT).  Quality approval for Japan is by PSE-JET, and in Taiwan by BSMI, the Taiwanese Bureau of Standards Metrology and Inspection.  Taiwanese cables are manufactured to Taiwanese Chinese National Standard CNS 10917 and CNS 3199.
