IEC 60331 Indoor Fire Resistant Unarmoured Telephone Cable

Application

This cable is used for the internal wiring of building when the circuit integrity during fire is paramount. The cable

is intended to take the place of LSZH sheathed cables and will withstand similar environments with a similar

working life. It is intended for use in fire fighting plants with mica tapes, with aluminium foil and LSZH outer

sheath.
