EN 50288-7 Cables

APPLICATION

En50228-7 LSZH sheathed cables are generally use for indoor installation and suitable for wet and damp areas.

The galvanized steel wire armour provides excellent protection. Generally, the cables are used within industrial

process manufacturing plants for communication, data and voice transmission signals and services. Also used for

the interconnection of electrical equipmentand instruments, the LSZH sheath can reduce toxic smoke and fume

emission.
