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 theinterconnection of electrical equipment and instruments, EN 50288-7 LSZH sheath can reduce toxic smoke and fume emission.
