EN 50288-7 Cables

APPLICATION:

EN 50288-7 cables are used for transmission of analoge and digital signals in instrument and control systems at

chemistry and petr°Chemistry industry plants, power plants, natural gas and petroluem plants, etc... EN 50288-

7 cables are used in the environments which have no corrosive gases are emitted in the event of fire. In case of

fire,EN 50288-7 cables inhibit the propagation of the flames whereby the development of smoke is extremely

low.EN 50288-7 Instrumentation cables are not allowed for direct connection to a low impedance sources, e.g.

public mains electricity supply. With blue sheath it is suitable for intrinsically safe systems. EN 50288-7 cables

are not recommended for direct burial. They are for indoor and outdoor installation, in dry and wet l°Cations; on

racks, trays, in conduits.
