ESV is warning electricians and contractors not to use Infinity and Olsent-branded TPS or orange circular cable. Recent testing has found that the cable is non-compliant with poor quality insulation that could deteriorate prematurely and cause fires or the risk of electric shock. ESV is aware that the cable was sold at Masters and two wholesalers, Titan Trading and Phoenix Electrical. It has been withdrawn from sale and anyone with unused Infinity or Olsent-branded cable should return it to the place of purchase. The cables concerned include:
  • All TPS cable - All sizes and configurations of polymeric insulated electrical cable that is PVC sheathed, PVC insulated, flat and flexible low voltage electrical cable also commonly known as TPS imported and sold by Infinity Cable Co Pty Ltd; and
  • All orange circular cable - All sizes and configurations of polymeric insulated electrical cable that is PVC sheathed, PVC insulated, round and flexible low voltage electrical cable also commonly known as orange circular imported and sold by Infinity Cable Co Pty Ltd.
ESV advises electricians that any Infinity and Olsent-branded cable they have installed should be removed.
