APPLICATION

EN 50228-7 unarmoured LSZH sheathed cables are generally use for indoor installation and suitable for wet and damp areas. Generally, EN 50228-7 cables are used within industrial process manufacturing plants for communication, data andvoice transmission signals and services. Also used for theinterconnection of electrical equipment andinstruments, the LSZH sheath can reduce toxic smoke and fume emission.
