I have bought a ceiling light manufactured in china. It's cable looks strange to me, it doesn't seem to be a copper wire and I'm not sure if is safe to use WAGO Copper connectors for it.
The marking on the cable reads like:
CE ◁VDE▷ ◁?VE▷ CEBEC ? ? ? ? CCC 227 IEC 52(RVV) 300/300V 2x0.75mm2 N2024 GUO BIAO
Question marks are symbols that I can't read.
Because of the grey steel-ish color I suspected steel and tried applying strong magnet to this cable - no effect, it is not sticking to magnet.
I tried googling, but I couldn't find a comprehensive explanation to Chinese cable markings in any language that I can read.
I already considered replacing the cable completely, and inspected internal cabling: The light fixture has 16 G4 lamp sockets, each socket has pressed in cables, which look similar color-wise to the main cable in question, I googled for replacement G4 sockets, but all of the them seem to have same grey-ish cables, this renders my idea of replacing the cable useless.
So my question here is:
what is the material of this cable?
can I use WAGO connectors with this cable?
I cut the cable and took a photo of the cut. It looks a bit orange-yellow-ish, photo is taken under white light and with a non-bleached paper as background. Still not a saturated copper-color.
