BS 5308 Cables

BS5308 Cable Part 1 Type1 XLPE-OS-LSOH

Application

BS5308 Cable Part 1 Type1 XLPE-OS-LSOH are generally use for indoor installation and suitable for wet and

damp areas. Generally used within industrial process manufacturing plants for communication, data and voice

transmission signals and services, Also used for the interconnection of electrical equipment and instruments, the

LSOH sheath can reduce toxic smoke and fume emission.
