EN 50288-7 Cables

APPLICATION

EN 50288-7 armoured LSZH sheathed cables are generally used when the risk of mechanical damage is

increased. The galvanized steel wire armour provides excellent protection. Generally,EN 50288-7 cables are

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 LSZH sheath can reduce

toxic smoke and fume emission.
