E.I.B Cable(European Installation Bus)


EIB installation consists of sensors and actuators. The E.I.B. concept allows intergration of Building Management

Systems (B.M.S.) over one common system. Lighting, blinds, heating and ventilation can be automatically

controlled through the E.I.B cable. This dramatically reduces the cabling required in a modern building. To meet

European standards this cable is LSHF throughout. They can be installed over, in, or below the plaster, in pipes

and pipe ducts, in dry, moist, and wet areas, as well as outside, provided they are protected against direct

exposure to the sun.
