The higher the number the better the cable. Example: If you are looking for a cable which is suitable for the highest mechanical load. It has to be oil-resistant following DIN-EN 60811-404 and bio-oil resistant following VDMA 24568, up to 100 m for unsupported and gliding applications and torsion resistant 90° at 1 m cable length. Choose from the classification overview: Requirements: 7 Travel distance: 5 Oil resistance: 4 Torsion: 2 This results in the cable classification – here "Class 7.5.4.2". This can be found on every product page.
