Description
  • REACH,CE,ROHS and CPR Compliant.
  • Anti-Rodent, Anti-Termite
  • 100% Electrolytic Copper
  • More than 101% Conductivity
Application

This cable is ideal for use in domestic applications, electrical switchgear, industrial lighting, control panels, wiring of switchboards, control, general wiring, instrumentation and communication systems. In many countries, it is mandatory to use these cables in

Auditoriums, Hospitals, Hotels, Schools, Stadiums, and all constructions for public usage.

Specifications
Conductor Thin strands of Electrolytic Copper are multi-drawn for uniformity of Resistance, Dimension and Flexibility. The drawn strands are uni-laid with high precision and compacted. Thus forming a perfectly circular conductor which enables reduction in overall diameter for space saving in high density wiring.
Conductor Speciality The strands do not get cut when stripping the insulation. The conductor offers perfect contact at pins, terminals and sockets. Thus, eliminating spot heating and sparking.
Insulation Polyolefin cross linked EI5 to BS EN 50363-5 Low Smoke Zero Halogen .
Insulation Conformity EN 60332-1-2, EN 60332-3 & EN 60754-1 & 2
Colours Green, Black, Red, Yellow, Blue, Grey, White
Marking The cables are marked 'FIREX '
Packing 90 mtrs. Coils packed in protective cartons.
Standard BS EN 50525-3-41
Temperature range -15°C to +90°C
Properties

The insulation does not burn readily. It does not melt and drip, smoke is negligible, transparent, non-toxic. In a fire situation the people trapped in fire do not suffocate. This facilitates fire fighting and rescue operations. This cable has extended service life against the conventionally used cables. Ozone resistant according to EN 60811-2-1
