Flame Retardant RS485 Databus Cables

Flame Retardant RS485 Databus Cables

APPLICATION

The cables are designed for RS485 data connections where continued functionality is required during a fire

situation. This cable combines low capacitance insulation with one of the highest levels of screening to provide

high speed, interference free, data transmission where continued functionality is required during a fire situation.

STANDARDS

Basic design adapted to EIA/TIA 485

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

Multipair RS 485 Overall Screened Databus Cable

Conductors: tinned copper wire, stranded according to IEC(EN) 60228 class 2.

Insulation: Foam PE or foam skin PE.

Cabling Elements: Insulated cores are twisted to form pairs with varying lay length to minimize crosstalk. Two

pair cable had four cores laid in quad formation.

Cabling: Pairs are cabled together in concentric layers.

Overall screen: Aluminum/polyester tape with tinned copper drain wire.

Outer Sheath: Thermoplastic PVC compound. UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance, anti rodent

and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC

60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the overall cable

design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.
