Flame Retardant Overall Screened, Armoured Instrumentation Cables (multipair)

Application

The armoured LSZH versions (Part 1 Type 2) cables are generally used when the risk of mechanical damage is

increased. The galvanized steel wire armour provides excellent protection. Generally used within industrial

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

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

emission.

Standards

Basic design to BS 5308 Part1 Type 2
